La Salle edges Prep for Catholic League title

Both teams scored in overtime, but La Salle's successful extra point was the difference as the Explores topped St. Joseph's Prep, 28-27, in the Catholic League football final.

On La Salle's possession of overtime, La Salle's Sean Coleman hauled in his fourth-touchdown of the game to tie the score at 27. Kicker Ryan Winslow converted the game-winning extra point for the win.

It's the Explorers fifth-straight league title. It's the sixth title for head coach Drew Gordon.

With 16.1 seconds left in regulation, the Hawks missed a potential game-winning 40-yard field goal. And then St. Joe's missed the ensuing extra point after Olamide Zaccheaus scored on the opening play of overtime.
