Football: Fivay 21, Anclote 14

HOLIDAY — Friday night's showdown between Anclote (0-3) and Fivay (2-1) didn't exactly start off with fireworks.

After two unsuccessful possessions by both teams, Fivay put the first points on the board when quarterback Tyler Degen connected with tight end Kevin Faulkner from 19 yards out to take a 7-0 lead late in the first quarter.

With just over six minutes to go in the first half, Anclote quarterback John Forgione was picked off by safety Charles Nickerson, who returned the ball to Anclote's 14. Three plays later, Degen threw another touchdown, this one to wide out Sean McKillen from 10 yards out to take a 14-0 lead into halftime.

The fireworks came out full blast to start the second half.

On the opening kickoff, Anclote's Chris Gregory returned it 95 yards for a touchdown. On the ensuing kickoff, Fivay erased what little momentum Anclote had when Willis Reeves went 85 yards for a touchdown, giving Fivay the lead, 21-6.

Anclote then capped a seven-play drive with a touchdown run from 14 yards out by Willie Barrett and converted the two-point conversion to trail 21-14, which was the final margin.

Forgione threw a late interception to end any hopes of completing the comeback.
