FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Snider and Bishop Dwenger add another chapter to their rivalry on Friday night, when for the second year in a row, their game goes to overtime.

This year, the Panthers squeak out a 42-41 win, after Dominique Dickey blocks Connor Friesner's extra point following the Saints' go-ahead touchdown.

In Snider's overtime possesion, the Panthers would score on a quarterback sneak from Brandon Phelps, and win the game on the extra point from Josh Spitnale.

The see-saw game saw Snider score 21 unanswered points, followed by Dwenger scoring 21 unanswered. After that, the battle went back and forth. Eventually, the Panthers made an interception late in the fourth quarter and the blocked extra point in overtime swung the momentum.

Snider running back John Nelson rushed for 343 yards and 4 touchdowns. While Snider does not keep individual football records, head coach Kurt Tippmann says Nelson's game was one of the best in school history.

Tippmann joined Tommy Schoegler and AWP President & CEO Michael Ledo to talk about Snider's big win.
