Fayette finds second-half spark to beat Harrisburg 41-6
Friday’s game against Harrisburg was starting to look too much like last year’s nail-biting victory to Fayette head coach Tom Oakley. In their inaugural meeting, the Falcons had to squeak out a 7-point victory, which came down to the final play of the game in 2014.
Even though the Falcons were ahead by a touchdown Friday night, several mistakes overshadowed their halftime lead. That all changed in the second half.
Fayette dominated the third quarter, scoring four touchdowns while the defense shut down Harrisburg. The Falcons won 41-6 at Harrisburg, improving to 2-0 in the young series in the final nonconference meeting between the two soon-to-be conference rivals.
