Elizabethtown narrowly beats Cedar Crest 13-12 in Week 5

Friday Night Football

An incredibly close game had defense dominate throughout as it was 7-6 Elizabethtown heading into the third quarter. An E-Town fumble would be recovered by Cedar Crest. On the ensuing drive, Aiden Richards just gets it in to make it 12-7. That lead would hold until 4 minutes left in the game, Elizabethtown runs a Philly Special to get into the red zone and set up a Hayden Haver one-yard TD rush to make it 13-12 for Elizabethtown. Cedar Crest was driving with a minute left, but a costly fumble stops all comeback attempts as Elizabethtown hangs on for the 13-12 win.
