Another historic football season at Kiel High School came to a tough end and again, it was Greendale Martin Luther that put a stop to the Raiders run. Even though Martin Luther star running back Darios Crawley-Reid put together another incredible night, it was Sylvere Campbell that may have been the biggest headache.

Campbell had just one pass reception in the game, but it was a huge one that set up the Spartans winning score as Crawley-Reid finished off the last-minute drive and finished off Kiel with a two-yard touchdown run with 19 seconds left as the third-seeded Spartans rallied for a 38-35 WIAA Division 4 Level 2 football playoff win over the Raiders at Fifrick Field Friday night.
With Kiel leading 35-31 and just 40 seconds left, Martin Luther faced a fourth-and-20, do-or-die situation from the Kiel 38 yard line.
Quarterback Nik Mueller dropped back to pass and lofted a near-Hail Mary pass that Campbell caught between two Kiel defenders for a first down at the Raider three. Crawley-Reid then scored the game winner two plays later and Kiel had little time to recover.
The lead changed hands six times over the final 16 minutes with Kiel leading most of the way.
Crawley-Reid blitzed the Kiel defense for 244 yards rushing that included four TD’s, one being for 92 yards. He added 106 yards on kickoff returns for 350 all-purpose yards.
Kiel quarterback Connor Voelker threw for 230 yards with Hunter Scharenbroch catching two TD passes and Brian Barrette one. Barrette returned a GML kickoff 85 yards for another TD and had a third touchdown wiped off when his 27 yard return for a score after ripping the ball away from a Spartan player on a punt return was ruled a muff late in the second quarter and the TD was disallowed.
Michael Endries hit the 1000-yard rushing mark for the season on his final carry of the night, a 28-yard run late in the fourth quarter.
Kiel set a new record with ten wins this season and ends its year at 10-1.
Martin Luther, also 10-1, gets a chance to avenge its lone loss of the year when it plays a Level 3 game next Friday and top-seeded and undefeated Racine St. Catherine’s.
