The Lowndes Vikings suffered a rare home defeat Friday night at Martin Stadium.
Head Coach Randy McPherson's team has already wrapped up the Region 5A title, but felt defeat Friday night for just the 2nd time all season long. Vikes lost to Tift County 10-7.
A key interception in the 4th quarter from Lowndes defensive back Kenneth Durden fueled a potential comeback by the hometeam.
But the Vikes missed a 36 yard field goal for the tie. Vikings got the ball back and then couldn't connect on a 47-yarder.
This is the first time Lowndes has lost to Tift County since 2006.
