YORKVILLE – Joe Ryan's gut was to go back to Grant McConkey, and go for the win.
He had a practical reason, too.
"Gut feeling, I was out of plays," said Ryan, Sycamore's coach.
McConkey made the last call gold.
McConkey, Sycamore's junior quarterback, completed a two-point conversion pass to Jason O'Donnell in overtime.
It gave the Spartans a thrilling 28-27 win over previously undefeated Yorkville on Friday in the Northern Illinois Big 12 East.
