CoGo's Feature Matchup: Ambridge rallies to beat Moon in OT

PSR Logo
Ambridge scored three touchdowns in the fourth quarter and overtime to beat Moon 27-21 at Moe Rubenstein Stadium on Friday night.

Trailing 18-7 early in the fourth quarter, Ambridge running back Romnn Shell scored from a yard out and sophomore quarterback Tariq Jones added the two-point conversion to pull the Bridgers within three points at 18-15.

Jones, normally a running back and linebacker, was forced into playing quarterback due to injuries. The athletic sophomore delivered.

Late in the game, Jones came up with perhaps his biggest play of the season, hitting fellow sophomore Isaiah McNair for a 77-yard scoring strike to give the home team a 21-18 lead.

Moon was not finished, however, as the Tigers drove the length of the field and converted a 21-yard field goal as time expired to tie the game at 21-21 and force overtime.

The Tigers got the ball to begin the overtime period, but a fumbled snap on the first play gave the ball back to Ambridge.

Jordan Taylor took it from there, scoring on a 10-yard run to give Ambridge a 27-21 victory.

Jones completed 8 of 11 passes for 193 yards and two touchdowns, both to McNair. The sophomore receiver caught 5 passes for 133 yards on the evening.

Ambridge (2-1) faces unbeaten West Allegheny next week, while Moon (1-2) travels to Central Valley.
