Fourth quarter surge propels Halifax Academy over St. Francis Catholic 58-48

Generic football

The St. Francis Catholic Wolves and Halifax Academy Knights put on an offensive clinic, but in the fourth quarter the Knights pulled away, winning 58-48 in Thursday night high school football action.

It was St. Francis who took a narrow 40-38 lead into fourth quarter, but Halifax broke the game open with 20 unanswered points in the final period, before St. Francis answered with a touchdown and two point conversion to cut the deficit to 48-38 late in the fourth quarter, but never got closer.

St. Francis remains winless on the season with an 0-7 record. They play at Trinity Christian Academy in Deltona next week. Halifax Academy evens its record at 3-3.
