After a scary second half in which Allentown tied the game twice before forcing overtime, Delsea held on to win its third straight South Jersey Group 3 football title with a 42-35 win Saturday at Rowan University.
Delsea had the ball first in overtime. On the fifth play of the drive — which started at the 25-yard line — Rashaad Washington escaped for a 10-yard touchdown to give Delsea the lead.
Allentown could not answer on its chance to punch it in from 25 yards, and Delsea held on for the win.
A game that was expected to be low-scoring turned into a shootout early. Delsea was ahead by 21-14 at halftime.
Isaiah Spencer carried the load for Delsea in the first half, rushing eight times for 90 yards in the half, including touchdown runs of 34 and 25 yards.
