SENECA EAST 35
BASCOM -- Hopewell-Loudon had a chance to send the game to overtime as they put together an impressive 83-yard drive with 1:25 left on the clock, but time ran out with the ball on the one yard line as Seneca East defeated the Chieftains 35-27 Friday night.
Seneca East was up 28-27 in the fourth when quarterback Ethan Caudill threw a pass to Kevin Moore, who fought off a defender to reach the endzone, seemingly putting the game out of reach for the Tigers with only 2:37 left on the clock.
Hopewell-Loudon came up empty handed on their next possession, but a three and out by the Tigers gave Hopewell-Loudon hope, albeit with a long field ahead of them.
Quarterback Alec Gregg went 7 for 9 passing for 69 yards on the final drive before it stalled as the clock went to zero.
