A nitty-gritty battle between Warwick and Penn Manor went down to the wire. Warwick was up 21-17 in the third quarter. The Comets took the lead just as the third quarter horn sounded with a goal-line punch-in from Ethan Aldeman to make it 24-21. Warwick’s turn to score as Jack Reed connected with Cooper Eckert to make it 28-24. Last play of the game with three seconds on the clock, Penn Manor gives it to Eli Warfel who runs around in the backfield before launching one to Clark Wagstaff who makes a tumbling catch to steal the win with the clock at 0. Penn Manor clutches the win, 30-28.
