VIDEO: Tomcats defeat Rams in OT

ASHLAND — Ashland defeated Raceland 35-34 in overtime Friday night in Putnam Stadium.

Joey Kennedy hauled in a game-winning two-point conversion pass from quarterback Hunter Prince after Ashland's junior quarterback had scored on a 10-yard run.

Prince passed and ran for more than 200 yards.

Raceland led 14-0 early in the game and seemingly dominated the line of scrimmage. However, some big plays from the Tomcats forced overtime and eventually got the first win for new head coach Tony Love.
