BeCaHi Wins Contest of Winless Crosstown Rivals

Missed extra point in fourth quarter preserves 14-13 win for Golden Hawks over Liberty Hurricanes. Freedom Patriots lose in Nazareth. Notre Dame beats Northwestern Lehigh.


A mixed extra-point try in the fourth quarter was the difference between two winless crosstown football rivals as Bethlehem Catholic defeated Liberty 14-13 Friday night at Frank Banko Field.

A scoreless tie was broken in the third quarter when Golden Hawks running back Michael McDaniel scored on a 38-yard carry, according to The Express Times box score. Hurricanes quarterback Derek Byrd answered with a 1-yard plunge to paydirt.

The fourth quarter followed a similar script, with McDaniel carrying one in from the 15 and Byrd answering with a 1-yard keeper, but BeCa maintained the lead when the conversion failed.

Meanwhile in Nazareth, the Freedom Patriots could not control the Blue Eagles no-huddle offense in a 42-21 loss at Andrew Leh Stadium, according to The Express Times.

Brian Uliana’s 75-yard touchdown pass to Marqwell Brown on the first play of the fourth quarter brought Freedom to within a touchdown, but that was as close as the Patriots would get.

Freedom is now 2-3 overall and 2-2 in the Lehigh Valley Conference.

In the Colonial League, Notre Dame High School’s Noah Miller threw two touchdown passes and rushed for three more en route to a 35-7 victory at Northwestern Lehigh in New Tripoli. The Crusaders are now 2-3 on the season.
