Late in the fourth quarter, the Eagles moved quickly down field after a 4th and 1 stop defensively.  Eagles connected on  27 yard TD pass to Simeir Wade. Following the score, Kennedy Catholic ttempted a two-point conversion. A penalty moved the ball back. The attempt was unsuccessful. Kennedy Catholic trailed, 14-6 with 1:42 left in the game. After a defensive stop, Kennedy Catholic had the ball and moved quickly. Where quarterback Rayvion Wilbon-Venable connected on a 25 yard TD pass to Blaze Campbell. Trailing by 2 with 21.6 seconds left, Kennedy Catholic lined up for two. After dropping back, Wilbon-Venable darted to the left side for the corner of the endzone. But, was bottled up a few inches shy of the goal line. Only able to extend the ball across after coming up short.

A safely recovered onside kick for Iroquois was all that was needed to ensure a 14-12 homecoming victory in their temporary home-away-from-home.
