Friday’s Region 6 football game figured to go right down to the wire.
It did — and then some.
It went overtime with visiting Corry outlasting North East 13-10.
Tied at 7 in regulation, NE took a 10-7 lead on a 20-yard field goal by Casey Burch.
Corry’s Landen Weis, who raced 36 yards on the second offensive play of the game for a touchdown, then scored the game-winning TD on a 5-yard run.
That came after North East was called for a costly roughing the passer penalty.
After Corry scored on its opening drive, the host Pickers tied it late in the opening stanza on Seth Fuller’s 7-yard run.
There was no scoring in the third and fourth quarters sending the game into OT.
North East had the ball first from the 10-yard line. Fuller gained one and then none. On a third-down run, Fuller reached the 3-yard line. The Pickers opted for the field goal and Burch connected from the 10.
Corry started with a 2-yard loss. Then Nate Lesher’s pass was incomplete. But there was a roughing the pass penalty. That put the ball at the six.
Lesher gained a yard, then handed off to Weis who raced into the end zone for the game-winning TD.
Weis wound up with 109 yards rushing on 22 carries.
NE’s Keyan Skrekla was 8 of 12 passing for 52 yards, Fuller with four catches and Brandon Perez three. Skrekla ran 20 times for 72 yards, Tyler Wittman 14 for 44 and Fuller 10 for 23.
Corry was penalized 11 times for 79 yards, NE with just three penalties.
North East, now 0-3, looks for its first win this Friday against General McLane at Ted Miller Stadium.
