Bowie spoils Paradise’s senior night, chance for first playoff berth since 2008

The Paradise Panthers had a chance to break two streaks Friday night. With a win, Paradise (3-6, 1-3) would have snapped a three-game losing skid to Bowie dating back to 2013, and likely secured its first playoff berth since 2008. But the Jackrabbits (3-6, 2-2) had other ideas. Bowie spoiled the Panthers’ senior night, beating Paradise 32-22 behind four rushing touchdowns from senior quarterback Matt Wallace.

Paradise uses big second half to down Ponder, get key district win

Trailing 20-7 in the third quarter and struggling on offense, Paradise was on the brink of falling to 0-3 in district play and out of the 4-3A Division I playoff picture. Near midfield, the Panthers (3-5, 1-2) were facing a third-and-17 after a holding penalty moved them back 10 yards. Having run the ball virtually all game, Paradise coach Ronnie Gage dialed up a pass that worked to perfection. Sophomore quarterback Jace Essig dropped back and found Jack Ishmael streaking down the sideline for a wide-open touchdown reception that not only pulled the Panthers to within a touchdown, but turned the tide of the game in a crucial 35-20 victory over Ponder (3-5, 1-2).

But after Jack Ishmael hit a dramatic 39-yard field goal to send the game to a second overtime, the Panthers couldn’t convert on the point after in the second overtime, leaving the door open for Breckenridge.
