I wasn't there, but I heard Nettleton scored twice in the final 5 minutes.  They apparently hit a big pass play for a score w/maybe around 4:00 left, went for 2 and got it to tie the game...Greenbrier went 3 & out on its next possession and then shanked a punt...Nettleton got the ball back at the GB 35 and scored again in the last minute.

Great way to win...... and tough way to lose.

Congrats to Netty. Well done, GB.

Just a few more details about the last two scores.  Greenbrier had 4th and 3 at about the Nettleton 35 with just about 2 1/2 minutes to go and the score still 14-6 GB.  GB gained most of it but as the Jonesboro Sun reported they were about an inch short.  The offical had to go to a knee to look at the chain and ball - it was that close.  A first down would have meant more clock run although Nettleton still had two timeouts.  Then the very next play was the pass to the flat and a 65 yard TD.  The two point conversion tied it up.  The other detail is that it was with 2:13 to go.  So Nettleton's last two TD's were within the last 2:13 with the final one with 39 seconds after Nettleon got the ball back with a littel over a minte after Greenbrier's 3 and out as noted. 

GB squandered two redzone opportunities in the first half with one of those from the three.  That came back to haunt them.  Nettleton adjusted their pass defense in the second half and GB just couldn't get anything going.  An exicting game at the beginning and end, sort of ho hum in the middle, but a disappointing result if you're a panther fan.  Some missed opportunities early hurt.  Congrats to the Panthers who performed much better than most expected after a slow start to the season.  Good luck to the Raiders next week.
