INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Eastern Greene waited out a power outage before coming back to beat Lutheran in a Class A semi-state Friday night.

Lutheran was up 8-0 and driving for more just before halftime when the power went out at the Saints' stadium.

The lights were out for about 30 minutes and most fans stuck it out, but Lutheran never found the power switch after that break as the Thunderbirds scored 12 straight points to win, 12-8.

Eastern Greene will face Pioneer Friday at noon for a chance at their first state championship in football.
