Chris Miller rushed for 143 yards and two second-half touchdowns to lead Wirt County over Class A No. 16 Notre Dame 28-12 in school football action at Hite Field on Thursday.
Miller's runs of 77 and 20 yards sealed the victory for the Tigers (2-2).
Notre Dame had several first-half opportunities to build on a 12-8 halftime advantage but sputtered.
The Irish (2-2) had the ball four times inside the Wirt 20 in the first quarter and scored just once. Two turnovers and a drive that ended on downs would come back to haunt the Irish.
"We had too many chances get away in the first half and just too many critical mistakes," Notre Dame coach Robert Shields said.
Mark Jones, who led the Irish with 141 yards on 27 carries, scored on an 11-yard touchdown run to give Notre Dame a 6-0 lead with 1:05 left in the first quarter.
After a Wirt County turnover, the Irish were driving for another score in the second quarter when Adam Nicholais intercepted a pass and returned it 86 yards for a score. Miller added the two-point conversion for an 8-6 Wirt lead with 3:08 left in the half.
"Our defense played unbelievable and kept us in the ball game," Wirt County coach Jimmy Frashier said. "The interception return really sparked us."
Notre Dame regained the lead on a Casey O'Brien 1-yard TD dive with 21 seconds remaining in the half to push the Irish in front, 12-8.
The second half was all Wirt County. Joe McVey culminated a long drive with a 7-yard touchdown run to give the Tigers the lead for good before Miller's TD runs.
