KANNAPOLIS — Jamison Flowe scored the winning touchdown in overtime, as A.L. Brown’s football team won 35-28 against Cox Mill.
Ranked 10th in 3A by MaxPreps, the Wonders (3-0, 3-0) opened with an emphatic victory against Northwest Cabarrus, but they needed two overtimes to beat Central Cabarrus in Week 2 before surviving Cox Mill on Friday.
It wasn’t easy to see this close call coming. South Piedmont Conference opponent Cox Mill came in winless and hadn’t scored a point.
But the Wonders brought out the best in the Chargers (0-3, 0-2), who had negligible offensive production against West Cabarrus last week.
Ty Woods kicked field goals of 24 and 31 yards to propel the Wonders to a 6-0 lead, but Cox Mill surged ahead 14-6.
Cam Kromah’s TD pass to Isaiah Black got the Wonders within 14-12, and Woods’ PAT made it 14-13.
The Wonders needed Amareon Plummer’s rushing TD and a 2-point conversion by Tyriek Harris to get to halftime 21-all.
Kromah’s second TD pass — this one to Jacob Booker on a 30-yard connection — put the Wonders ahead 28-21 in the third quarter.
Cox Mill tied the game with about seven minutes left, and the teams were still deadlocked at the end of regulation.
Flowe’s TD run from the 7 in OT and a defensive stop meant anothe rexciting win for the Wonders.
West Cabarrus is next for A.L. Brown.
