The Alcoa bench erupts after senior Matt Franklin scores what looks like the winning goal as the horn sounds at the end of regulation in the state tournament opener with top-ranked Chattanooga Christian. Officials would reverse themselves and disallow the goal after the linesman ruled the ball had not crossed the goal line before the horn. After two 10-minute overtimes and two, five-minute, sudden-death overtimes, the Tornadoes would prevail, 1-1(6-5), in penalty-kick shootout.
