SHAMOKIN – It was a scene that played out several times this season, Williams Valley drives with time winding down in the game, getting that go-ahead score that pulled out the victory.
In this game, though, Williams Valley found itself on the wrong end of the comeback, as Steelton-Highspire scored with 90 seconds left in the game to pull out a 24-20 win in the PIAA Class A football quarterfinals at Kemp Memorial Stadium, Shamokin on Nov. 25.
Williams Valley head coach Tim Savage, dejected after the game, said he understands the heartbreak that several teams that played against the Vikings this season felt.
“You feel what Marian felt, what Tri-Valley felt,” Savage said. “You know what the people we’ve done it too feel. To come so close, and see it all slip away like that.”
With Williams Valley leading 20-17 with six minutes left in the game, the Vikings went into ball control amassing first downs and keeping the ball out of Steel-High’s hands.
