A missed extra point was the difference as Middle Park lost to The Academy 7-6 on a snow-covered field at Panther Stadium on Thursday evening in Granby.

The Panthers scored on their opening drive on a Brian Macchione touchdown run, but missed the extra point attempt. Middle Park took the 6-0 lead into halftime.

The Academy got on the scoreboard halfway through the third quarter and converted the extra point to take a 7-6 lead.

Middle Park mounted several drives, but each one stalled. The Panthers close out the regular season when they travel to Mead next Friday for a 7 p.m. kickoff against the Mavericks.
