Friday Night Football

Cumberland Valley enjoyed a nice roll in the mid-season before having it spoiled last week against CD East. State College was looking to week 7 to get back over .500. Cumberland Valley was up 12-0 at the half. State College came out with a vengeance in the second half. Jack Morris found Owen Yerka down the sideline to cut the lead to 12-7. Isaac Sines plays QB for Cumberland Valley and he kicks too, putting his team up 15-7. State College came back with a Braden Price reception and a 2-point conversion to tie it up at 15. State College added a field goal with two minutes left in the game. Cumberland Valley responded with a field goal of their own to send it into overtime. In OT, State College got the ball first and added another three points to make it 21-18. Cumberland Valley has to answer with some points, Sines would have his pass intercepted by Michael Gual who seals the deal in overtime with the 21-18 win.
