Delmar stuns Woodbridge, captures South Henlopen crown in overtime thriller
DELMAR, Del. – Delmar ended Woodbridge’s 19-game winning streak Friday night with a 21-14 double overtime victory, winning the Henlopen South.
Woodbridge grabbed the advantage early. Quarterback Daulton Perdue dove in for the touchdown midway through the first quarter.
Delmar’s offense would jump start thanks to the decision to go for it on fourth down twice.
Running back Jaylin Warner ran for the first on fourth-and-eight. A personal foul call on the play set the Wildcats up inside the Woodbridge 10.
The Blue Raiders mounted a valiant goal line stand, but quarterback Jacob VonArx slithered his way through the line for a one-yard score to tie the game.
Both teams would reach the red zone late in the fourth, but could not score, and the Henlopen South crown would be decided in overtime.
In the first overtime, Woodbridge got in the end zone thanks to a 12-yard pass from Perdue for Ricky Kane.
A 4-yard run for Hunter VonArx nodded the game up at 14, giving the frenzied crowd a sixth period.
Jacob VonArx would prove to be the hero in double overtime when he punched the ball in from two yards out, then proceeded to intercept a Perdue pass to end the game.
Delmar (8-2) finishes the regular season on a 5-game winning streak, and now waits to find out their seeding in the DIAA Division-II playoffs.
Woodbridge (9-1) will look to defend their Division-II crown.
