SOUTH COFFEYVILLE - Quapaw and Oklahoma Union could have been content to just quickly get their Thursday night season finale finished, then head home.
But the two weren't content - they combined for 101 points and 913 yards in a wild District A-7 clash that saw OU claim a 54-47 victory.
And the outcome wasn't decided until the final 1:58, when quarterback Dylan Rogers found a wide open Kyle Moore for a 50-yard touchdown strike. Rogers then went to Billy Baldwin for the conversion.
It's the most points the Wildcats have scored since getting 46 in a 2004 victory over Ketchum.
The 101 total is the most ever in a Quapaw game. The previous high was 90 during a 62-28 loss to Jay in 1954.
Rogers threw for 374 yards and five touchdowns while running for two other scores. He completed 21 of 34 attempts, including a 13-of-18 showing in the first half.
The teams finished with 933 yards total, the Cougars accounting for 488 of that.
Quapaw finishes 2-8 and 1-5 in the district while the Cougars improved to 5-5 and 2-4.
It looked like the Wildcats were going to be blown out as the hosts jumped out to a 34-15 on a 35-yard TD strike to Moore with 63 seconds left in the half.
However, Quapaw drove 52 yards with a snappy four-play drive that was capped by an 8-yard pass from Joey Bowling to Chase Price with 2.5 seconds remaining. Bowling's conversion pass to Ryan Rathjen got the Cats back to within 13.
An 8-yard touchdown run by Rogers nine plays into the second half enabled the Cougars to push the score to a seemingly safe 40-23.
But Quapaw erupted for three touchdowns in 7:19 - all from Hart - to wrestle the lead from the hosts, 47-40.
Hart had a 2-yard run, then stuck the ball barely over the goalline to get the conversion with 4:12 left in the third quarter.
Rathjen recovered a Rogers fumble at the OU 10, setting up another 2-yard run by Hart. The Cougars were flagged twice for encroachment on the conversion, leaving the ball just shy of the goalline. Hart then tacked on the extra points, cutting the deficit down to one point with 1:57 left in the third.
Hart capped the wild comeback with 8:53 remaining in the game on a 28-yard run.
That came seven plays after Blayden Stand dropped Billy Baldwin after a 6-yard gain on a fourth-and-11 pass.
Morgan Morey's conversion run gave the Cats a 47-40 advantage.
It took the Cougars just 37 seconds to counter, this time as Rogers and Baldwin teamed for a 43-yard strike. The three-play scoring drive was aided by a 15-yard facemask penalty on Quapaw on a pass play to Baldwin that had lost 2 yards.
Rogers was stopped short on the conversion attempt, leaving Quapaw with a 47-46 advantage.
It looked like the Wildcats might drive for an insurance touchdown. Hart returned the ensuing kickoff 34 yards to the OU 46.
Converting twice on fourth down, Quapaw eventually reached the OU 5, but Hart had the ball knocked loose and Tyler McGee recovered for the hosts.
It took Oklahoma Union less than two minutes to go 94 yards for the game winner.
Hart finished with 163 yards and four touchdowns on 22 carries.
