Tyson Christenson was mobbed by his teammates, then the rest of the student section after catching the game-winning touchdown for Goodhue in the third overtime.
The Wildcats and Warriors traded touchdowns in the first two overtimes, but the Wildcats finally prevented the Warriors from scoring the third overtime in a 39-33 win Friday night.
Christenson extended the ball over the pylon in time for the game-winner on a 10-yard screen pass from Will Opsahl.
Each team missed a two-point conversion and an extra-point kick in each of the first two overtimes. Caledonia needed just a good kick in the second overtime to win but missed just left.
Opsahl finished with four passing touchdowns to lead the Wildcats offense. Christenson threw to Maddox O'Reilly for a touchdown in the first overtime and led the Wildcats in receiving with 82 yards on four catches. He also had two pass deflections on defense.
Adam Poncelet caught five passes for 76 yards and two touchdowns for the Wildcats. Malakye Parker had 37 yards rushing on 11 carries and 25 yards on three receptions and a touchdown.
