FAIRFIELD — Jordan Roddy caught a 20-yard touchdown pass as time expired, then ran in the 2-point conversion Friday night as sixth-seeded Cony stunned third-ranked Lawrence 28-27 in a Class B North football quarterfinal.

The Rams (4-5) will play in the semifinals next week at second-seeded Brewer (7-1).

Cony faced fourth down from the Lawrence 20 with 6.3 seconds left when quarterback Taylor Heath rolled to his right, trying to buy time and find a receiver. Heath threw to the end zone, where Roddy was bracketed by a pair of defenders.

Roddy leaped for the catch, pulling the Rams within 27-26.

“It was supposed to be a 10-yard out, and I kind of, I don’t know, I was running around and there was four guys there. (Heath) just put it in there,” Roddy said.

“I didn’t know it was in my hands until I looked down and it was right there.”

“(Heath) did a good job just putting it in the end zone and giving us a chance,” Cony Coach B.L. Lippert said. “Stuff you dream about, really.”

Remembering how his team lost to Lawrence in the semifinals two years ago, when the Bulldogs scored a late touchdown and 2-point conversion to win 28-27 at Cony, Lippert never considered going for anything but the win.

He even told his team that’s what he would do before it took the field for the final offensive drive against the Bulldogs (6-3).

On the conversion, the Rams lined up with Roddy as a wildcat quarterback. Roddy took the snap and ran left, stretching the play until he almost ran out of room before crossing the goal line.

“We kind of gave up some yards in the fourth quarter. They were gashing us on the ground so we figured overtime from the 10- (yard line) probably wasn’t going to bode well for us,” said Lippert. “We went for the win there, put the ball in (Roddy’s)hands. I never doubted he was going to get in. He had to stretch it wide but he’s pretty instinctive.”

Cony’s winning drive started at its 20 with 1:42 left. Heath completed quick passes to Roddy and Chad Bickford to gain 32 yards. With 31 seconds left, Heath ran for 2 yards on fourth-and-1 at the Lawrence 22 to keep the drive alive. Three incompletions set up the final play.

“That last drive was hard to take but they made the plays,” Lawrence Coach John Hersom said.

Trailing 20-13 entering the fourth quarter, Lawrence tied it with 9:45 left when Devon Webb completed a 76-yard halfback pass to Gunner McAllister. After Cony punted from midfield, Lawrence went 79 yards in nine plays, taking its first lead when Jared Dodge caught a 7-yard pass with 1:42 to play.

“We’ve been practicing it for about a month now. That was a big play for us,” Hersom said of the halfback pass. “We were kind of on our heels a bit tonight and our kids made a nice push.”
