MILFORD — Ryan Obiso found just enough energy for one final burst.
His last of 31 carries went for 14 yards and a touchdown when he broke through a hole in the middle and a would-be tackle and clinched No. 3 Delaware Valley’s wild, 49-42 win over previously undefeated Williamsport on Saturday at Warrior Stadium.
“That was amazing,” said Obiso, who finished with 191 yards and four touchdowns, the last coming with 24 seconds remaining. “I had the whole team with me. It’s an incredible game. Back and forth action, and we came away with the win.”
With Obiso running with power and speed, and quarterback Matt Cavallaro dissecting the secondary for 275 yards, the Warriors (5-2) were able to stave off Williamsport (6-1) and its explosive offense.
The Class 6A heavyweights combined for 1,024 yards, 40 first downs and 13 plays of 20 or more yards.
“Our line did a great job too,” Cavallaro said. “We were moving the ball well with Ryan running right up the gut and I think that opened things up for us in the passing game.
“Then that success opened things up for Ryan running late.”
Williamsport senior quarterback Isaiah Hankins completed 18 passes for 321 yards and two touchdowns and led a furious second-half rally with 261 passing yards and a rushing touchdown that tied the game at 42-42 with 2:39 left.
Running back Treyson Potts, only a sophomore, ran for 114 yards and scored three touchdowns for the Millionaires.
“If you paid money, you got your money’s worth,” Millionaires coach Chuck Crews said.
Delaware Valley battled to a 28-14 lead at the half and the teams combined for 42 points in the fourth quarter.
Delaware Valley’s defense did force a key turnover on downs at its 16 with 11:04 to go in the fourth. Cavallaro threw a rainbow to Dylan Kelly for an 84-yard score that made it 35-21.
“Me and Matt have a great chemistry on that play,” Kelly said. “He launched it up there, and I went and got it and it was off to the races.”
Jalen Jackson, Potts and Hankins all had scores for the Millionaires in the fourth, while Trevor Smith had a 12-yard leaping score with 6:18 to play and Obiso won it for the Warriors, who covered 54 yards in 2:07.
