KNOX, Pa. – Kyle Nellis’ 21-yard touchdown run and Drew Keth’s two-point pass to Spencer Heeter off a fake extra-point play with 6:15 left in the game lifted Keystone to a come-from-behind 20-19 win over Brookville.
Nellis ran for 108 yards on 14 carries and threw a 52-yard option pass for a touchdown to Drew Slaugenhaupt to lead the Panthers, who improved to 3-0.
Rayce Weaver completed 5 of 11 passes for 134 yards, including a 49-yard TD pass to Tyler Albright, who caught four passes for 121 yards.
The Raiders (0-3) jumped out to a 13-0 lead in the first quarter as Easton Belfiore threw two of his three TD passes to Brayden Kunselman and Noah Peterson covering 20 and 19 yards. Weaver’s TD pass to Albright and Nellis’ scoring strike to Slaugenhaupt cut the score to 13-12 before Belfiore’s 34-yard TD pass to Kunselman made it 19-12 with 1:09 left in the game.
That turned out to be all the points scored for the Raiders, who were limited to 41 yards in the second half by the Panthers.
However, the Raiders threatened late in the game, getting to the Panthers’ 20 with under two minutes remaining. On a third-and-five play from the Keystone 15, the Panthers sacked Belfiore. After the play, the game clock ran at least 20 seconds when this year’s new rule should’ve given the Raiders the option to stop the clock because of a defensive penalty called on a 5-yard facemask flag.
Instead, the Panthers sacked for Belfiore for a 9-yard loss to force fourth down at the Panthers’ 29 with seven seconds put back on the clock after it was allowed to run out despite Brookville trying to call timeout. On the final play of the game, Keth intercepted Belfiore at the goal-line to seal the win.
Belfiore completed 10 of 20 passes for 138 yards with his three TDs in his first varsity start with Kunselman catching seven passes for 100 yards and two scores. Jackson Zimmerman ran for 89 yards on 24 carries.
