FARRAGUT (WVLT) -- Oak Ridge seemed destined to beat Farragut Friday night at Clabo Field in West Knoxville.

Every time the Admirals tied the game, the Wildcats responded with a score of their own.

Until late in the fourth quarter.

Farragut quarterback Cody Rule forced overtime with a late touchdown run and Jacob Johnson intercepted a pass in the extra session to give the Admirals (1-1) their first win of the season, a 24-21 victory over Oak Ridge.

The Wildcats (0-1) led 7-0 at halftime. Farragut tied the game with a touchdown run by Taino Perez, who replaced Rule at quarterback when the signal-caller left with an injury.

Oak Ridge crossed the end zone to make the score 14-7, but the Admirals evened the tally on a long touchdown completion. The Wildcats took the lead again, 21-14, but Farragut marched down the field, converting a key fourth down and scoring the late game-tying touchdown.
