One of the longest games in the history of Walsh Jesuit football ended in heartbreak at Conway Memorial Stadium
In a game that ended at 12:44 a.m. Saturday morning, Columbus Bishop Watterson got a 37-yard field goal from kick Jonah Fortkamp with three seconds left on the clock. That proved to be the difference in a 24-21 win for the Eagles.
The game was delayed twice due to lightning storms.
After the second weather delay, Walsh Jesuit rallied to tie the score in the fourth quarter with a 1-yard touchdown plunge from quarterback Cameron Mayes. Mayes then hit tight end Joe El Biri with the two-point conversion pass to tie the game at 21-21 with about eight minutes left in regulation.
Mayes had three rushing touchdowns on the night, but he was sacked on the final play of the game to cement the win for Watterson.
Walsh will travel to Buffalo, N.Y. to take on St. Francis next Friday at 8 p.m.
