Football: Armwood 19, King 8

SEFFNER — Armwood overcame a late fourth-quarter deficit and narrowly avoided an upset in a 19-8 victory over King.

In the first half, the only score was Nick Feely's field goal with 28 seconds left for a 3-0 Hawks lead.

The second half was more exciting. After Feely extended the lead to 6-0, the Hawks forced a quick three and out. On the ensuing drive, King's Dezrick Ingram picked off Noah Johnson and returned it 62 yards for a touchdown. Leon McQuay III blocked the PAT to keep the score tied at 6.

After King registered a safety on Armwood's Alfonso Thornton to take an 8-6 lead midway through the fourth quarter, Thornton's 28-yard touchdown run with 5:10 left gave the Hawks a 12-8 lead. Byron Cowart's 40-yard fumble recovery for a TD iced the game.
