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. After offseason of work hard, play hard, DeSean Jackson ready to produce for Bucs


    TAMPA — There's no telling what DeSean Jackson will do once he gets a football in his hands.

    ST. PETERSBURG — RHP Jake Odorizzi is hoping his struggles this season can be tied directly to the lower-back strain he has tried to pitch through since spring training. Toward that end, the Rays placed Odorizzi on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday retroactive to Tuesday.

    It is going to get interesting tonight when the Rays begin a four-game series against the Yankees in New York. The Rays feel they are good enough to win the East Division. These next four games and the four that follow in Houston will be a good measuring stick.
