Matthew Harris, of Lyons, looks for room to run after a reception against Marist at Marist, Friday, October 26th, 2012 in Chicago, IL | Gary Middendorf~for Sun-Times Media
Lyons linebacker Patrick Kelley picked off Marist quarterback Ian Woodworth twice while defensive back Matthew Harris returned a Woodworth interception 50 yards for a score early in the second quarter. Lyons (6-4) held a 27-14 halftime lead.
After Marist scored its second fourth quarter touchdown to cut its deficit to six points at 34-28, Lyons’ Matt Mrazek recovered an onside kick at midfield with less than two minutes to go in the fourth.
“This is a huge win for us, and we knew Marist was a great team. Our game plan was to play smart and play tough the whole game,” — Harris
Lyons intercepted Ian Woodworth three times, including one that Harris returned 50 yards for a touchdown. Woodworth (32-of-54, 396 yards) threw a fourth quarter touchdown to Flynn Nagel, and Jordan Burger punched in a touchdown from one-yard out, but Marist (8-2) was unable to recover two onside kick attempts.
