Senior kicker Trey Hampton drilled a 24-yard field goal on second down of overtime to lift the Station Camp High School football team to a 22-19 victory against crosstown rival Gallatin on Aug. 24, winning the Mayor's Cup.
The Bison, 2-0 for the first time since 2007, led 5-2 at halftime with a Hampton 31-yard field goal and a sack of Gallatin's quarterback by senior linebacker Billy Weekley in the end zone.
Station Camp made it 12-2 in the third quarter with a 6-yard run by senior quarterback Blaine Forte, then senior defensive back Nylan Alexander got his second interception return for a touchdown in as many games, picking off a pass and going 55 yards for the score and a 19-2 advantage.
Bison turnovers played a role in Gallatin's comeback, as the Green Wave (0-2) rallied to tie the game 19-19 at the end of regulation.
