by Mike Dalton
The RHS football team overcame a 20-0 1st quarter deficit to beat Mabel-Canton Friday night, 42-34.
Randolph tied the score at 20-all at the half, but again fell behind in the 3rd quarter, 34-20. They tied the game at 34-34 with four minutes remaining, recovered a fumble with 1:50 to go in the game, and scored the winning touchdown with three seconds remaining. Luke Dubbels hit Hunter Ehlers from 35-yards out for the winning score.
"We started out pretty slow, but I really like how we came back," coach Chris Stanton said. "Our conditioning wore Mabel-Canton down in the 2nd half.
"Dubbels played really well at quarterback, and our lines on both sides of the ball also played well, after we made some early adjustments."
Dubbels was 13-22 passing for 284 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. Ehlers caught six passes for 121 yards and three TDs, and Drake Speight caught four passes for 105 yards and a touchdown.
Justin Waldvogel scored a touchdown and gained 84 yards rushing, and threw a key block on the game-winning play. Dubbels rushed for 68 yards and a touchdown.
Chuck Wille led the defense with 13 tackles and a fumble recovery. Michael Landsberger also had a fumble recovery, and Zach Sirinek and David Speight had sacks.
Randolph is at Glenville-Emmons on Friday, Aug. 29.
