ALLEGHENY 20, BETHANY 17, OT
BETHANY, W.Va. — The Allegheny College football team concluded the 2022 season on a high note on a warm and sunny Saturday afternoon, as the Gators knocked off Bethany College in overtime, 20-17, thanks to the left foot of sophomore kicker Garrett Paxton.
The 19-yard game-winning field goal was redemption for Paxton, who was responsible for all six points scored in the second half of what proved to be a defensive struggle. The second-year kicker had an opportunity to seal the victory in regulation, but his 35-yard attempt with one minute remaining in the fourth quarter was low and off the mark.
