Football Falls In Final Seconds

It was Verona’s game–until it wasn’t.

The Verona High School football team traveled to Ramsey on Friday night and, with less than four minutes to play, Verona led 27-21 and seemed poised to score again. Then the Rams forced a fumble from the usually sure hands of Cael Zebrowski, turned it into a touchdown of their own–and the extra point.

At the next kickoff, there was about a second left on the clock. Not enough for anything, or so it seemed. But Verona fumbled the recovery in the end zone, Ramsey fell on the ball and secured a 34-27 win.

Frank Riggio had two of Verona’s four touchdowns, and Zach Bucher and Steven Petro each had one. The loss drops Verona’s record to 4-2. Verona’s next game will be an unusual Thursday night contest, when it hosts Hoboken on Sellitto Field.
