Milton managed to go ahead 28-14 before take three for Palmer, this time from 66-yards out, and the Aggies were down by just one TD.

In the fourth quarterback Hunter Riggan scored on a keeper to even up the matchup at Milton, 28-28.

Then Panthers scored again, 35-28.

But wait the Aggies were not not done. Tate inched within one point as Riggan found Spencer Ruiz for a 63-yard score with 1:19 in the ballgame.

The Aggies decided go for two and the win, but Milton charged for a QB sack and their first win over Tate since 2012.

    Those Tate guys played so hard last night! Hunter and Patrick were just getting beat up all night and still have everything they had. You guys are amazing and all heart! It really sucks when these boys not only have to play the opposing team but also have to play against the piss poor officiating all night. Those Refs couldn’t see crap last night….so frustrating.
