Lions end season by beating rival cats
While it's kind of cliche to say it, sometimes when rivals get together you can throw the win-loss records right out the window.
And that is exactly how Friday night against rebuilding rival Dallastown went. The Wildcats had the lead, but Red Lion fought back and came away with a 28-21 victory.
Although the game was closer than expected to some, Lions coach Jesse Shay said that is what can happen when rivals get together.
"Also at this time of the season, kids are banged up and for the 4th game in a row we were without our home run threat (Randy Fizer)," he said.
"Kids played hard. Responded really well in the 4th quarter when Dallastown made a little run at us and grabbed momentum."
Trailing 21-20, Red Lion stopped a Wildcats' drive with seven minutes to go when Kurt Keough's tackle for a 3-yard loss changed possession.
The Lions scored right after that and held on to win.
Devyn Gurreri ran for three touchdowns and Gerald Zapata added a reception for another score. Keough played well defensively and Shay added that Jake Bradley had his best game of the season on both sides of the ball.
