Warren DeLaSalle 21, Central Catholic 14
The Pilots scored the go-ahead touchdown on Allen Stritzinger’s two-yard run with 1:50 remaining, then held off a Central Catholic rally thanks to a turnover.
The host Irish took a 7-0 halftime lead on Tre’Von Wade’s three-yard second-quarter TD run, and led 14-7 in the third quarter after Michael Warren (five carries, 121 yards) scored on another two-yard run.
But DeLaSalle tied the game on Tru Wilson’s 21-yard TD run in the third quarter. Stritzinger, who scored the Pilots’ first TD on a 35-yard third-quarter run, led DeLaSalle’s 225-yard rushing attack with 138 yards on 24 carries.
Central returned a late kickoff, then moved to the 15-yard line after two pass completions and a penalty. But Warren lost a fumble with 55 seconds to go, and the Pilots ran out the clock.
