The Braves capitalized in the moment, blocking the kick to send the game into overtime. After matching a Tidwell touchdown in the first overtime, Community retook the lead in the second overtime on a two-yard rushing touchdown by Quinton Hall. The Farmers failed to match this score, as the Braves’ defense helped clinch a second consecutive playoff spot.
