DARLINGTON - With Darlington's hurry-up offense, senior Trynton Schwartz believes no football game is out of reach for the Redbirds. With Darlington and Cuba City tied at 14-14 with 1 minute, and 20 seconds left Friday at Martens Field, Schwartz had to think the Redbirds could come up with another homecoming miracle. But junior quarterback Alex Erickson's pass on third-and-1 was intercepted by Cuba City's Travis Schroeder and returned for a game-winning touchdown with 29 seconds left to give the Cubans a 20-14 win over the Redbirds. "I was thinking we have a two-minute team," Schwartz said. "I think we are one of the best two-minute teams in the area. We have so much confidence under two minutes to make a big play."
