GEORGETOWN — Despite a fantastic showing by quarterback Stephen MacDonald and receiver Matt Galley, Georgetown football couldn't hang on as St. Mary's erased a late deficit to beat the Royals 34-33.
St. Mary’s initially jumped out to a 6-0 lead midway through the first before Georgetown answered with a Stephen MacDonald touchdown pass to Matt Galley to tie it up at 6-6.
The two sides traded touchdowns from there, with St. Mary’s retaking the lead before Matt Armata got in for a touchdown run to put the Royals ahead 13-12. MacDonald hit Galley for another touchdown shortly before the half to make it 19-12.
MacDonald and Galley connected once more in the third before St. Mary's answered with a touchdown to make it 26-25, but with five minutes left the Royals scored to retake the lead.
That was unfortunately too much time for St. Mary's, who marched downfield and retook the lead for good on a late touchdown.
Georgetown (4-5) will now have one more non-playoff game next weekend before wrapping up its season on Thanksgiving against Manchester Essex. Next weekend's opponent and time will be finalized by Sunday.
