Senior quarterback Martrell Berry ran for a 1-yard touchdown with no time left on the clock, and Tates Creek beat Paul Dunbar 13-7 Friday night.
Berry struggled all game, going 0-for-10 with an interception and running for just seven yards on seven carries. But the last yard was all that mattered. It capped a 14-play drive that started at Commodores' 39 and took 7:04 off the clock.
The workhorse for Creek (3-4) along the way was running back Dennis Oxendine. He ran for 34 of his 175 yards on the drive and set up Berry's touchdown with a 2-yard plunge.
Oxendine opened the scoring with a 4-yard run with 1:42 left in the first quarter.
