Sixteenth-seeded Wissahickon shocked top-seeded Downingtown East with a last-second field goal in the first round of the District 1 AAAA football playoffs at Downingtown West.
East, which entered the game 10-0 and ranked second in Southeast Pennsylvania by The Inquirer, rallied from 14 back in the second half to tie the game with seven minutes left, but Wissahickon managed a 22-yard field goal by Greg McDonough as time expired to shock the favorites, 38-35.
Wissahickon charged ahead with a 21-point third quarter led by Dave Stillato, who broke off three of his four touchdowns, to take a 35-21 lead.
After Stillato’s final score, Downingtown East began its comeback. Jay Harris, a Michigan State recruit, returned the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown.
