Fourth quarter nightmare ends Tyrone’s title hopes
You could pinpoint any number of momentum-changing plays that ultimately made the difference in Penns Valley’s dramatic 28-21 come-from-behind victory over Tyrone Friday night in Spring Mills.
The easiest way to put it is the fourth quarter was a disaster for the Golden Eagles. It was a span of 12 minutes plagued by penalties, turnovers, mishandled balls, dropped passes, and miscommunication on defense.
The longer story is that Tyrone simply didn’t do much offensively in the second half to prevent a fourth quarter rally from turning into the nightmare that is was. After totaling 178 yards and 10 first downs in the first half to build a 21-7 lead, the Golden Eagles were limited to 130 yards and four first downs over the final two quarters, 24 minutes in which Tyrone was kept off the scoreboard.
