When Frederick Douglass scored to take the lead late Friday Night against Owensboro, the Broncos missed the extra point, which proved to be extremely costly. Once the Red Devils tied the game with a screen pass to Ethan Avery, the final drive needed one finishing touch.That's where Andrew Lanz came in. The sophomore capitalized on the miscue by the visitors by kicking the extra point that turned out to be the game winner.

"I just have to go out and do my job, and treat it like every other kick. Don't have any more pressure on myself, just go out and do my job." "It was an awesome feeling. I had faith in our defense to be able to get the stop and we were able to win," said Owensboro Sophomore Kicker Andrew Lanz.

"We all had faith in Drew, I mean, he's only missed like one pat on the year and it was because it was blocked but other than that, he's very efficient so we all believed in him. I believed that he could go out there and get the job done, said Owensboro Senior Wide Receiver Treyvon Tinsley.

"We had every confidence that Drew was going to go out there and hit that PAT. He's been extremely consistent for us all year and I felt very confident and had a very calm feeling and knew that he was going to go out there and hit that for us," said Owensboro Head Coach Jay Fallin.

Today's high of 93° not only marks our hottest recorded temperature of the year, but our highest since the afternoon of August 10th of 2020! Despite the oppressive heat, the day itself wasn't necessarily unpleasant; while peak temperatures climbed abnormally high for this time of the year, a weak cold front passing to our south ushered in a breezy northerly wind flow that helped take the edge off that summer-like heat across the Tri-State earlier this afternoon. The evening ahead will remain quite pleasant, albeit mild - expect the mercury to dip from 87° to 75° between dinnertime and 10PM. Between the northerly winds and clear conditions overnight, morning low temperatures will trend toward the upper 50s and low 60s early Tuesday; we'll fall to 60° even in Evansville.
