COLUMBIA, Mo–The Holt Indians made their first-ever trip to the state football championship when the Wentzville school took on perennial power Webb City in the Class 5 title game Friday at Faurot Field.
Holt fell behind in the first half and trailed 26-7 before mounting a crazy comeback to get within 6 points with less than two minutes left in the fourth quarter. But an interception on the game’s final play sealed it for Webb City. They won 26-21.
Holt’s undefeated season comes to an end on the doorstep of a title.
