PALM BAY Both Bayside and Satellite came into Friday night’s contest winless.

It took overtime for one of those teams to get the W.

In a thriller that went down to the wire, Satellite QB Alex Nicks found Erik Askeland with 1:20 to play in overtime to propel the Scorps to victory their first victory this season.

Despite visible lightning to the north, the game played on during Bayside’s homecoming.

The Bears struck first, when Sheridon Archer put together runs of 30 and 20 yards before punching it in for a touchdown.

With Satellite leading 21-14, Bayside’s crowd was brought to life when Archer rumbled 40 yards for a game-tying touchdown.

In the fourth quarter, with 11:52 left to play, Askeland scored a touchdown for Satellite High — making the score 27-21.

At about 9:05 p.m., everyone in the stands was asked to evacuate because of lightning in the area. People were let back in and the game was resumed at 9:20 p.m.

Soon after, Bayside grabbed a one-point lead when Archer scored on a 50-yard touchdown with 6:29 left in the fourth quarter.

Satellite scored again — making the score 34-28 with 2:08 in the fourth quarter. But Bayside worked fast to advance up the field quickly, and Joel Dorjuste scored a touchdown, tying the game and sending it into overtime.
