Bergenfield grad Corey White catches game-winning Hail Mary for Stonehill College
Both Stonehill College (Easton, Mass.) and LIU Post (Brookville, N.Y.) entered the game with identical 3-0 records and each received votes to be nationally ranked. With the score 30-6, fans started to already leave the football game in Brookville, N.Y. for the battle of the unbeatens. Fans that left early missed a comeback win for the ages, led by a wide receiver from New Jersey.
At the end of the 3rd quarter, the score was 30-13, that's when Stonehill began to create one of the greatest comebacks and most dramatic wins in recent memory. Quarterback Matt Foltz (Mount Joy, PA) finished with 421 passing yards and erased a 24 point deficit with 4 touchdowns in the 4thquarter. Stonehill also scored 20 points in the last 1:02 of the game.
After already scoring a touchdown and getting the onside kick back with 6 seconds left in the game, Stonehill found itself down by 3 on the 41-yard line. Since there was some miscommunication with the offensive line, Foltz found himself running for his life with 4 Post players chasing after him. After some crazy athleticism, he heaved it up as the clock hit zero. Senior wide receiver Corey White (Bergenfield, NJ) comes down with the ball to lift the Skyhawks past the Pioneers 40-37 with one of the greatest college football comebacks in recent memory.
