WINTHROP &045; When they drove to the Gibbon-Fairfax-Winthrop 2-yard line but did not score, it looked like all hope was lost for the United South Central Rebels.

It wasn’t.

The Rebels got the ball back not once but twice in the final four minutes and scored both times, rallying to win 19-14 in a Gopher Valley Conference football game at Winthrop Wednesday night.

After a 7-7 halftime tie and a scoreless third quarter, GFW took the advantage with a fourth-quarter scoring pass. The Rebels answered with a drive before stalling at the 2.

After forcing a punt, the Rebels got an 11-yard touchdown pass from Brandon Haugh to Adam Schrader with about a minute left. They went for the win with a two-point conversion but it fell short.

An ensuing on-side kick was recovered by USC’s Shea Kaiser.

Two plays later Haugh hit Schrader with a 43-yard pass that he tipped and caught in the end zone.

The Rebels finished the regular season 3-5 overall and 3-4 in the conference.
