Cade Keesling's 27-yard field goal in overtime gave Woodbury a 20-17 home victory over intracity rival East Ridge and sole possession of first place in the Metro East district Friday night.
Keesling forced the overtime with a 25-yard field goal on the last play of regulation, ending a drive that saw the shorthanded Royals (6-1, 4-1) start on their own 3-yard line.
Charlie Wilson scored a rushing touchdown as he filled in as part of a quarterback-by-committee effort for the Royals, who are ranked No. 5 in the Class 6A Associated Press poll, to replace injured starter Jake Wenzel. Zach Ames contributed with Woodbury’s other touchdown, rushing from 6 yards out.
Zach Zebrowski completed 16 of 18 passes for 190 yards and a touchdown to lead No. 10-6A East Ridge (4-3, 4-2).
