The winning drive came after the longest play of the game, a 40-yard pass from QB Collin Cox to Carson Chaffee, that put the ball at the Y/P 12 with under two minutes remaining.
With one final chance to tie things up and Y/P freshman Trent Englert making a nice play on a squib kick near midfield, QB Parker Bonefede’s deep pass was picked off by Lucas Mason to end the game.
This one was all defense, with only one play going for 20 yards.
