Piqua beats Butler with minutes left on Thursday Night Lights

PIQUA, Ohio (WRGT/WKEF) – FOX45’s Thursday Night Lights crew is winding down the season, and ramping up the action. In back-to-back weeks, the game came down to the final minutes with Piqua holding off Butler.

Greater Western Ohio Conference receiving touchdown leader Hayden Schrubb caught four touchdowns, including the game winner.

"I mean the offense just kept going. We had some defensive slow down, but heck, we kept going, and kept going, and we finished the drive and came up with the win," Schrubb said.

Bryant Johnson went toe-to-toe with Schrubb, catching two touchdowns for the Aviators. It wasn’t enough, as Indians win 33-27.

"Week in, week out, we all have each other's backs. We make big plays when they count, and we all stick together, and that's the main thing," Piqua running back Ben Schmiesing said.
