D9Sports.com: Karns City Rallies in Second Half to Knock off Chestnut Ridge

NEW PARIS, Pa. (D9Sports.com) – On the road, down at halftime, the District 9 Champion Karns City football team rallied to beat District 5-8 Champion Chestnut Ridge 23-14 in a PIAA Interdistrict Sub-Regional football game Friday night at Chestnut Ridge.

The Gremlins (11-1) trailed 7-3 at halftime but outscored the Lions (10-3) 20-7 in the second half behind a strong running attack and an opportunistic defense.

A 10-yard Tyler Dunn touchdown run on the first drive of the second half gave Karns City the lead for good, and Tristan Rhoades, battling through a hamstring injury, gave the Gremlins some breathing room late in the third quarter with a 4-yard scoring run to put KC up 16-7 heading to the final eight minutes.

But Chestnut Ridge, which has seen its season ended by Karns City in this very game each of the last three years, didn’t go away quietly answering the Rhoades touchdown with a 25-yard scramble for a score by quarterback Tyler Wiley with 7:58 left to play cutting the Gremlin lead to just two, 16-14.
