ASHLAND - Myrtle returned to football action at Ashland after being in quarantine for a week and that layout contributed to the Hawks 38-36 loss in triple overtime. 

Ashland scored first in the final overtime and converted on the two-point conversion to take a 38-30 lead.

Myrtle answered with Jackson Mayer's 10-yard touchdown run off the left side, but the try for two was unsuccessful and the Blue Devils escaped with the 38-36 win. 

The teams finished regulation tied at 14-all and the opening possession of the first overtime went to Ashland. The Blue Devils scored on a pass play on third down and converted the attempt for two to go up 22-14. 

Eli Thompson came back with the Hawks response as he scored on a one-yard yard and the two-point conversion knotted the score at 22-22. 

Myrtle took the first possession of the second overtime and Mayer ran it in from a yard out and the try for two gave the Hawks a 30-22 lead. However Ashland came back to tie the game and force the deciding frame. 

Mayer scored the opening touchdown of the contest in the first quarter with 4:09 remaining on his 27-yard run. 

Thompson gave the Hawks a 14-0 lead with 3:20 left in the first half on his 42-yard fumble return. 

Myrtle travels to Coldwater on Friday in this week's football action.
