Last-minute TD lifts Pikeville to 24-17 win

Trevor Hoskins' third touchdown pass of the game — with 53.3 seconds left — gave host Pikeville a 24-17 victory over Kentucky Wesleyan on Saturday night.

The junior quarterback's 21-yard strike to senior Axxel Rivas also set a new Pikeville record for touchdown passes. Hoskins has 32 in his career.

Not all of Hoskins' numbers were good Saturday. He threw as many interceptions as touchdowns, and the first was returned 95 yards for a touchdown by Kentucky Wesleyan's Jeff Ward.

Pikeville (2-0) tied the game 17-17 on Grayson Quick's 20-yard field goal with 4 minutes left in the game.

Kentucky Wesleyan (0-2) led three times in the game, the last 17-14 early in the fourth quarter after a Chris Owen TD pass to Shawn Mooney.
