HARBORCREEK, Pa. – Kennedy Catholic needed a 2-point conversion to tie Thursday’s non-region football game with Iroquois with 21 seconds to go in the fourth quarter.
Instead, the Iroquois defense stood tall, turning away the Golden Eagles in a 14-12 victory. The Golden Eagles (0-3) scored late on a Rayvion Wilbon-Venable 25-yard touchdown pass to Blaze Campbell, Wilbon-Venable’s second touchdown pass of the fourth quarter.
Trailing 14-0 going into the fourth, Wilbon-Venable connected with Simeir Wade on a 27-yard scoring strike to make it 14-6.
It was all Iroquois (2-1) in the first half, as Michael Hoopsick scored on a pair of touchdown runs, one each in the first and second quarter from 6 and 39 yards out that put the Braves up 14-0 at halftime.
Hoopsick carried for 127 yards and the two touchdowns, while Wilbon-Venable threw for 150 yards and ran for 42 more. Wade added 93 yards receiving for Kennedy Catholic.
