Trailing 27-16 with 59 seconds to play in Minnesota's Class 6A state quarterfinals, Maple Grove pulled off a miracle comeback scoring 19 points in under a minute to beat St. Michael-Albertville and advance to the semi-finals.

Maple Grove actually trailed 27-10 with 4:30 to play before capping a 70-yard drive with a 30-yard touchdown pass from Curtis Haugen to Joe Raymon with just under a minute to play.

Not only did the Crimson recover an onside kick trailing 27-16, but on the ensuing play, Haugen hit Raymon along the left sideline for a 49-yard touchdown pass to cut the lead to 27-22.

Only 46 seconds remained in the game.

Once again, Maple Grove recovered an onside kick. This time it took five plays to score, which came with a one-yard touchdown run by Evan Hull with four seconds remaining.

Maple Grove will now face the state's top team, Eden Prairie, in the state semi-finals next Thursday.

'Just like we drew it up,' Crimson coach Matt Lombardi told his team afterwards, according to 'It just shows as bad as things might seem for you, you can never give up. You have to keep playing and hope things fall in your favor.'

Not even the NFL has experienced a comparable comeback over the final minute.
