West Scranton’s Sweeting Dives for the Victory
West Scranton 35 Delaware Valley 34
Delaware Valley jumped out to a 13-0 lead and it appeared as if the Warriors were going to cruise to the finish line. Not so fast, the Invaders would not be out done. In a most exciting second half of football, West Scranton outscored the Warriors by a count of 21-8.
Trailing in the fourth quarter 34-27, West Scranton’s quarterback Tyler Hughes connected with Malcolm Sweeting on a 68-yard strike to bring the Invaders within one point, 34-33. Instead of attempting an extra point kick, West Scranton relied in Sweeting to get them into the endzone for a two-point conversion. Tyler Hughes threw a screen pass to the right side of the field and Malcolm took care of the rest as Sweeting dove in for the two-points to give the Invaders a 35-34 lead. One last chance for Delaware Valley on fourth and three, the Warriors could not convert the first down as West Scranton outlasts the Valley, 35-34.
