No. 8 Mitty Shocks No. 4 Bellarmine

Down 27-23 with 1:13 remaining in the game, Mitty QB Kyle Boehm took over against Bellarmine Friday, leading the Monarchs on an 81-yard touchdown drive to ice the game, 30-27.

With 28 seconds remaining and Mitty on their own 38, Boehm rushed for 57 yards on four consecutive plays, ending in his one-yard plunge into the endzone.

"I was back in the shotgun, and I saw my receivers, and there weren't any to throw to," the senior said. "I just took advantage of what was there and ran, and things worked out in my favor."

"Their QB made some outstanding plays, a lot of great individual plays," Bellarmine coach Mike Janda said. "In a game like that, you have to tip your hat to him. When the game was on the line, he made some tremendous plays."

Boehm had started the second half with -17 rushing yards.

Monarch senior running back Joe DeCecco had 109 yards rushing on eight carries.

Bellarmine senior running back Kristoffer Olugbode led the Bells with a game-high 114 yards on 25 carries.

Mitty (5-3-1, 4-1-1 WCAL play) is now tied with Serra for second place in the WCAL.

Bellarmine (7-2, 4-2 WCAL) dropped to third place.
