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.

  1. USF defense feeds on Temple offense to take NCAA interceptions lead


    TAMPA — Backed up in his end zone, Temple quarterback Logan Marchi scrambled, trying to elude a USF defensive end coming straight for him. Until then, Marchi hadn't had much luck hitting his receivers.

    No. 21 USF ran its record to 4-0 Thursday night with some payback against Temple, a 43-7 trouncing, no contest, as if anyone cares, at least judging by the paltry crowd at Raymond James Stadium. Where was everybody?

  4. Former Ray Tim Beckham's over being traded, or is he?

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — As the Rays reunited Thursday with Tim Beckham for the first time since he was dealt July 31 to Baltimore, it became very clear that not everything in assessing the trade is as it appears.

    Tim Beckham, here in action Monday against the Red Sox, has hit .310, with 10 homers and 26 RBIs since going to the Orioles.

    The Rays still talk about having a shot to make the playoffs. But recognizing and correcting mistakes will help them next year, such as Mallex Smith trying to steal third in the first. "Those are the little things we've got to find how to eliminate real quick," manager Kevin Cash said.
