YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Ursuline football team rallied past Chaney 27-26 for their first win of the season and the first since the return of head coach Dan Reardon.
The Irish led 14-6 at halftime, but a big third quarter for the Cowboys gave them a 20-14 lead heading to the fourth quarter.
But Ursuline took advantage of several turnovers to position themselves to take the lead. Quarterback Brady Shannon went down with an injury, so Coach Reardon’s son, Matthew, led the team in the second half.
With under seven minutes left, Reardon threw a timely pass to James Phillips down inside the 10-yard line. Then Trenton Hill pounded in a short touchdown to give the Irish a 27-26 lead.
One last chance for Chaney fell short as DeMarcus McElroy came up with an interception to seal the victory.
Up next, Ursuline (1-5) travels to Bishop Watterson, while Chaney (3-3) travels to University School for Week 7 next Saturday afternoon.
