Holy Cross Football Rallies From 26 Points Down to Beat Georgetown 32-31

Sunday, November 18, 2018

 

Holy Cross beats Georgetown

The Holy Cross Crusaders football team rallied from 26 points down with 20 minutes left to play to beat Georgetown 32-31 on Saturday afternoon.

The Crusaders wrap up the season at 5-6 overall and 4-2 in the Patriot League, while the Hoyas conclude the season at 5-6 overall and 4-2 in the conference.

Holy Cross finishes the season with wins in their last four games.

Holy Cross Storms Back

Trailing 31-5, Holy Cross quarterback Geoff Wade threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Martin Dorsey with 4:21 left in the third quarter to spark the rally.

Dorsey hauled in 13 catches for 139 yards in the game.

Early in the fourth quarter, defensive back Macklin Kortebein blocked a punt which was returned 38 yards for a touchdown by freshman Spencer Gilliam.

Less than five minutes later, Kortebein blocked a second punt which freshman  Peter Oliver brought back 27 yards for a touchdown, and the Crusaders trailed 31-25.

However, the Crusaders were still down six with less than a minute to go.

Facing a 3rd & 15, Wade found sophomore wideout Tenio Ayeni for 30 yards to give the Crusaders a first down at the Georgetown 23-yard line.

Five plays later, running back Miles Alexander scored on a two-yard run with just 42 seconds on the clock to put Holy Cross up 32-31.

The Hoyas would have one last possession, but on the third play defensive back Chris Riley intercepted a pass to put the game away.

Defense Steps Up

The Holy Cross comeback was sparked in large part due to their defense.

The Crusader defense held Georgetown to just 212 yards of total offense and 10 first downs on the afternoon, while forcing a pair of turnovers.

Senior linebacker Ryan Brady led the way with 16 tackles, three tackles for loss and a safety, while senior defensive lineman Teddy Capsis added nine tackles with four tackles for loss.
