It looked like New Albany was headed toward its first loss of the season Friday night, trailing 19-7 late in the fourth quarter at Pickerington North.
But quarterback Brock Kidwell (photo by Gabe Haferman) followed up his 24-yard touchdown pass to Jadyn Garnes with two minutes left by scoring on a 7-yard scramble with 37 seconds left to give the Eagles a 20-19 win.
A quick three-and-out by Pick North (7-2) after Kidwell’s touchdown pass gave New Albany (9-0) a glimmer of hope, and the Eagles capitalized.
New Albany, ranked No. 21 in SBLive’s Ohio Top 25, is now all but guaranteed a top-four spot in Region 3 of the playoffs.
