Rain couldn’t slow down the Comets in their 14-12 victory against Warwick on Friday, October 23.
The Comets were on the board fast as standout junior receiver, Demetrious Dixon, brought in a pass from P.J. Rehm. LeRon Lee also had reservations for 6 as he entered the end zone untouched.
By the end of the first half, Penn Manor was ahead 14-0.
The heavy rain started to come and so did the Warwick football team. Before the Comets could realize what happened, their lead was shattered and only two points separated the section rivals.
The 4th quarter came quickly on the Penn Manor senior night. The seniors were looking for a different result but a fumble by Lee was recovered from Warwick which quickly turned the tables in the section battle.
Warwick charged down the field and set up for a desperation field goal with about 1:50 left in the game.
Champions come out to play in the 4th quarter and make plays and this is what the Comet’s Garrett Young did to close the match up by blocking a field goal ending the Warrior’s plans to ruin Penn Manor’s senior night.
After the game, Young said, “The game was exciting and after blocking the kick I was pretty hyped.”
Penn Manor prevailed, improving their record to 7-1.
