ANTWERP – It was the final 10 minutes of play that told the story of Friday night’s football game. Unfortunately for the Archers, the end of the story was not a happy one. Antwerp traveled to Holgate on Friday evening and while the Archers were clinging to a 20-18 lead and looking for more, the momentum turned Holgate’s way.

In the final period, deep in their own territory Holgate, was pushed even farther back when Tiger quarterback Gabe Santos was called for intentional grounding. Facing a fourth down near the goal line, Santos, also the punter, had trouble retrieving the ball and was forced to run out of the end zone and managed to escape to the five yard line. Turning the ball over to Antwerp, the Archers were just five yards from another score.
