Varsity Football Comes Up Short on Final Play

The varsity flag football team dropped a heartbreaker to Park (33-26) this week. Trailing by a score with under a minute to play, the Blue & Gold had multiple chances at the end zone before time expired, but couldn’t connect. Michael Timmins had a pair of touchdowns for the home team, while classmate Quinn Foley contributed with several strong catches on in-routes. Newcomer Bernie Mattox chipped in with a big first-half interception. Eventually, Belmont Day just ran out of answers, however, and Park left campus with a seven-point victory.
