Football: Fivay 25, Hudson 21

HUDSON — It was a tale of two halves on Friday night as Hudson took control early but couldn't slow Fivay's comeback in a 25-21 Falcons victory.

With 2:52 remaining in the game, Fivay marched down the field. Completions by quarterback Tyler Degen for 18, 16, 12 and 17 yards led to a first and goal with 10 seconds remaining. Fivay's Aaron Gordon ran in for a score from the 3 to give coach Chris Taylor his first victory.

In the first half, Hudson (0-4) took advantage of its homefield. A 1-yard run by Terrell Rhaney put the Cobras up 7-0 on the opening drive. On their second possession, senior quarterback Cody Beck ran for a score and a 14-0 lead.

Fivay (1-1) countered on its next possession with a 20-yard pass from Degen to wideout James Bullock. The Cobras scored with 1:25 left in the half on a 1-yard run by Hayden Moyer.

On Fivay's first possession of the second half, Degen connected with Bullock for a 23-yard touchdown, cutting the Cobras' lead to 21-12.

Hudson recovered a Fivay fumble with 7:13 left in the third quarter and drove to the Falcons' 1-yard line. But the Cobras could not capitalize and Fivay took over on downs.

Four plays later, Degen connected with Bullock for an 85-yard touchdown. Another missed extra point made it 21-18 Hudson with 11:58 remaining.
