Scott got that chance to tie by driving 76 yards in just over two minutes to cut a 22-14 deficit down to just two on a 11-yard touchdown run from Loftus with 2:01 left -- his third of the game. That set up the critical failed 2-point conversion.
The game was tied at 14 and appeared like Sissonville would take the lead midway through the fourth quarter, but the Skyhawks made a huge goal line stand to deny the Indians.
Sissonville drove to the Scott 1-yard line and faced third down but fullback Dominic Walker was stuffed on consecutive plays, giving Scott a seemingly huge stop and momentum.
However, with Scott facing a third down from its own 1, a bad snap in the shotgun formation resulted in the ball going out of the end zone, giving Sissonville a 16-14 lead with 7:18 left in the game.
On the following possession after the safety, Sissonville drove 58 yards on just four plays, capped off by a Jacob Fisher 40-yard TD run with 4:24 left to give the Indians a 22-14 lead before Scott's final drive to try and tie.
"Wow, It was a crazy game," Smolder said. "I can't even remember all the turn of events that happened. Our kids just fought and just wanted it a little bit more. We banded together and did what we had to do."
Both teams had their chances, with Sissonville surviving three lost fumbles (five overall). Scott turned the ball over twice as well on lost fumbles.
"We had our opportunities, and we just didn't get it done," Griffith said. "We are 1-3. We expect better of ourselves. I think we are a better football team, but Sissonville did what they had to do to win tonight.
"Turnovers definitely hurt us," Smolder said. "Our plan to win is to protect the football. We didn't do that very well tonight. We were lucky to win with the amount of turnovers we had, but if you work hard, good things happen."
Walker led Sissonville with 97 yards on 15 carries, Wilkinson added 58 yards on 17 attempts, and Miller had 43 yards rushing and 81 through the air.
For Scott, Loftus led the way with 141 yards on 22 carries and Tristan Crone chipped in with 79 yards on 17 rushes.
