Ford lifts Young in overtime


The star

Young senior quarterback Casey Ford completed 10 of 19 passes for 138 yards, including a 10-yard touchdown pass to senior tight end Garland Gay on the second play of overtime.

The moment

A goal-line stand helped redeem Gay after his fourth-quarter fumble nearly cost the Dolphins in regulation. The Wolfpack’s Malcolm May returned the fumble 21 yards to the Dolphins’ 9-yard line. Young nose tackle Dannery Alvarez stopped junior quarterback Rocco DiLeo inside the 1-yard line on fourth-and-goal with six seconds remaining.

The quote

“After the goal-line stand, I knew the game was ours. You could see they were deflated and we had all the confidence.” — Ford

The breakdown

St. Ignatius failed to convert on three second-half takeaways, and its final three fourth-quarter possessions ended on downs. May also forced a fumble, had five tackles and rushed for 47 yards. Senior linebacker Eddy Boche registered four tackles for loss for the Dolphins.
