Late field goal eliminates Butler



In LaGrange, Ga., on Saturday night, Troup's Jody Sellers kicked a 25-yard field goal with 22 seconds to play, lifting the Tigers to a 9-7 win over Butler in the first round of the GHSA Class AAAA playoffs.

Butler (8-3) led 7-0 at halftime after forcing a fumble in Troup territory and capping a scoring drive with a 2-yard run from Rodgerick Nabors.

However, Troup used an 82-yard touchdown drive in the third quarter to pull within one, setting up Sellers' heroics in the final minute. He had missed two field goals and an extra point before the winning kick.
