Cambridge pulls out win in final minutes over WiHi
Tribe fumbles on own 14-yard line with two minutes remaining
SALISBURY, Md- The Cambridge South Dorchester Vikings recovered a fumble with 1:58 inside WiHi territory, and followed it up with a John Henry 4-yard touchdown with 1:02 remaining to walk away with an improbable 32-28 win on Friday night at Wicomico County Stadium.
In a back and forth affair, the Tribe jumped out to a 14-0 lead behind two Stephaun Harris first quarter touchdowns. CSD would answer in the second quarter with two scores of their own, one 30-yard TD pass from Henry to Logan Middleton, and another via 6-yard touchdown by Malik Ennals to lead 15-14 at halftime.
The teams would exchange scores in the third, with WiHi taking a 21-18 lead into the fourth quarter. CSD would take the lead on the first play of the fourth quarter, with Middleton with his second touchdown grab of the night, off a 36-yard dime from Henry.
After exchanging punts, the Tribe would eventually break thru. Matthews finished off an impressive drive with a thunderous touchdown run, giving his team a 28-25 lead with 4:06 to go in the game. The next Cambridge possession, Henry would be picked off by Matthews inside the end zone- registering a touchback, with just over two minutes remaining. The very next play, WiHi would fumble the snap, only for the Vikings to recover and take over at the Wi-Hi 14-yard line. After a few plays, Henry would run in the game’s final score, putting CSD ahead 32-28 for good.
Cambridge (3-1) moves to host Nandua next weekend, while WiHi (1-3) travels to take on Snow Hill.
