Hurricanes score twice in last minute, best Hornets 30-21

After trailing 21-14 in the third quarter, the Hurricanes scored 16 unanswered points to beat the Hornets on Friday night. “We took this game like a championship,” said Hartford’s star running back Ezra Mock. “It was our time to win.” The Hurricanes jumped into the driver’s seat thanks to a Sean Keliher touchdown with 46 seconds left in the game. Hartford regained the ball after a turnover, and Mock closed the door with a touchdown of his own. Essex, the defending Division 1 champions, are now down to a 2-0 winless deficit against undefeated St Johnsbury Academy next week.
