Winchester finished the game 21-for-40 passing for 278 yards and four touchdowns and carried 16 times for 60 yards, but Mount Pisgah never led until the final minute.
That’s because Mount Paran controlled the game early with a running game led by Dorian Walker and Emoni Williams. Walker scored on a 2-yard run in the first quarter and a 40-yarder in the third and finished with 170 yards on 28 carries.
Williams had 109 yards on eight carries, and his 72-yard run in the fourth quarter gave the Eagles a 24-14 lead.
But the Eagles couldn’t put Mount Pisgah away. Mount Paran hurt itself with two first-half turnovers and had a short field goal blocked in the first quarter.
