HEGINS — The matchup on paper was just about even between the two teams. The final result was just about even, too through the statistics, with one difference.
Williams Valley pulled out the win with just 45.6 seconds left on the clock to give the Vikings a 14-7 victory over crosstown rival Tri-Valley Oct. 21 in Hegins.
Down 7-6 with 4:53 left in the game, Williams Valley put together a 10-play 54-yard drive that was all Dylan Rabuck. The junior running back ran the ball nine times during the drive, eight of them for positive yardage.
With the Vikings having first and 10 on the 15 with time running down, quarterback Levi Engle found Kenny Boyer in the end zone to take the lead 12-7. Engle then completed just his third pass of the night, the two-point conversion to Devon Rabuck and Williams Valley was up by seven with seconds left on the clock.
After getting the ball back on their own 15 and moving up to the Tri-Valley 30, the drive stalled and Williams Valley clinched the victory.
