Football vs. Lycoming, Oct. 3 W, 41-38
Complete Recap
Tim Pirrone's quarterback sneak from 1-yard out sealed Lebanon Valley's heart-stopping, come-from-behind 41-38 overtime victory over Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) rival Lycoming on a wet and windy Saturday afternoon at Arnold Field in early October.

The sophomore do-it-all athlete earned redemption following a fumble with less than two minutes to play that was scooped up by Lyco's Wyatt Entz and returned for a 47-yard touchdown to give the Warriors their first lead of the game. Pirrone and the rest of the Flying Dutchmen snatched victory from the jaws of defeat when the quarterback shook off back-to-back sacks and hooked up with a diving Travis Saylor on 4th and 18 for 38 yards deep in Lycoming territory with less than a minute remaining. Pirrone rolled out and hit Kyle Zimnik for the game-tying touchdown in the left corner of the end zone three plays later. 

Marcus Brown's extra-point attempt hit the left upright and fell through to give LVC new life heading into overtime. The Warriors were forced to settle for a 38-yard field goal on their opening possession of the extra session after Trevor St. Clair blew up quarterback Chase Whiteman with a bone-crunching sack on a 3rd and 4. Lebanon Valley used a roughing the passer penalty, a pair of 4-yard Brendon Irving rushes, and Pirrone's quarterback keeper to move the ball to the 1-yard line. Two plays later, Pirrone capped the team's most dramatic victory of the season with his punch-in.
