SHARE Warren shocks Lyons in triple-OT thriller

THE SKINNY

Lyons lost a 21-0 lead entering the fourth quarter and then lost a chance to win in the third overtime when quarterback Brent Moskiewicz fumbled on the third play from scrimmage in Warren’s 42-35 nonconference victory at Lyons.

TURNING POINT

Warren right guard Matt Dolijanin injured his leg with 1:22 remaining in the third quarter and could not return. Dolijanin needed help on the field for several minutes before coming off, but his injury ignited the Blue Devils. Warren scored on all three of its fourth-quarter possessions to tie the game.

THE STAR

Warren QB Andrew Nickell (23-for-32 passing) threw for 160 of his 250 yards passing in the second half and was 5-for-6 in the fourth quarter to ignite the Devils’ comeback. His two passing touchdowns came in the fourth quarter and in the third OT.

BY THE NUMBERS

Nickell completed passes to eight different receivers. His favorite target was Joshua Schroeder (four catches, 69 yards).

QUOTABLE

“I’m on cloud nine right now. When Matt was injured, we were all just silent for a while. It woke us up from there,” — Nickell.
