Wyomissing completes remarkable comeback against Trinity to keep regular season winning streak alive in high school football

Sep. 9—One of the hallmarks of Wyomissing football is that seemingly any player can rise to the occasion and make a difference for the Spartans at any given time.

On Friday, after trailing by as much as 20 points against Trinity in a non-league football game Friday at Camp Hill, Wyomissing freshman Justice Hardy became the latest to live up to that notion.

With 14 seconds left, quarterback Logan Hyde connected with a Hardy on a 1-yard play-action pass to tie it, before the extra point by Keegan Maher gave the Spartans a 35-34 lead they would keep for good to extend their regular season winning streak to 38 games.

Trailing 34-14 in the third quarter, Wyomissing clawed its way back with an 8-yard rushing touchdown from Collin Niedrowski in the third quarter and a 1-yard scoring run from Chase Eisenhower in the fourth to get the Spartans within a touchdown.

The game ended with a sack by Penn State commit Caleb Brewer on quarterback Caleb Wray. Wray finished with two touchdown passes.

The Shamrocks opened a 14-0 lead behind an 85-yard run from Messiah Mickens, a Penn State commit, and a blocked punt returned for a score. A 44-yard touchdown run by Derek Macrina put Wyomissing on the board in the first quarter.

Trinity's Lebron Mallard caught a 22-yard touchdown pass from Wray to make it it 20-7.

A 57-yard run by Eisenhower in the second quarter gave the Spartans some momentum before the Shamrocks scored two touchdowns to establish a double-digit lead once more.

A 38-yard touchdown pass from Wray to Mike Johnson added to Trinity's lead before the half, and a blocked punt that was returned for a touchdown by Jacob Ness made it 34-14 in the third quarter.

Eisenhower scored a 57-yard touchdown run and Macrina scored a 44-yard run in the first half. Wyomissing ran 56 times for 410 yards.
