Auks Defeat St. Mark's in Exciting Fourth Quarter

The fifth-ranked Archmere Auks scored 21 fourth-quarter points to erase a 20-3 deficit to defeat Saint Mark’s, 24-20, on Saturday, September 28th in front of a robust home crowd. 

With six minutes left in the game, Archmere quarterback Tom Carney '20 found James Pinto '20 with a 41-yard drive, then found Matt Dellose '22 for a 32-yard score, bringing the score to 20-10 Saint Mark’s.

Within a minute, "Archmere’s defense came up big, forcing a three-and-out, and the Auks took over at the Spartans’ 40. On first down, Carney extended the play and hit Roo Conaty in the end zone. Suddenly, Saint Mark’s lead was down to 20-17."

"The momentum stayed with the Auks as Connor Udovich intercepted a pass to give his team possession at the Spartans 32. Mallamaci took the ball on the next play and raced 32 yards to give the Auks a 24-20 lead with 3:52 left. Udovich intercepted a Spartans pass to seal the victory."

Archmere travels to No. 1 Woodbridge on Friday for a 7 p.m. kickoff.
