GREENCASTLE, Pa. -- What a debut!
Less than a week after learning he would be playing in his first high school football game, Luke Bitner nailed a 35-yard field goal as time expired to lift Greencastle-Antrim to a 20-17 win over Chambersburg in the first meeting between the two teams in 99 years on Friday at Kaley Field.
"I just kicked the ball," said the unassuming sophomore. "I kept my head down so I didn't see it go through, but I heard the crowd's roar so I knew we won."
The kick capped an amazing 18-second drive that was set up by Cody Ezolt's interception of a Connor McKoy pass, which gave the Blue Devils a first down on their own 46. Devin Schaeffer replaced starting quarterback Austin Scott and promptly completed passes to Chad Miller for 16 yards and Denton Cordell for 20.
