Kings Point Capitalizes on Late Mistakes

The Kings Point football team scored nine fourth-quarter points off Muhlenberg mistakes and went on to defeat the Mules, 22-14, in the season opener for both teams.

Muhlenberg took a 14-13 lead with 9:07 left in the third quarter when senior Matt Bernardo took a third-down swing pass from junior Ryan Newman and ran 18 yards for a touchdown. But early in the fourth, the Mariners intercepted a pass at midfield and returned it inside the 10-yard line. A touchdown on the next play gave Kings Point the lead for good.

Later in the quarter, the Mariners blocked a punt, setting up a field goal.

The Mules attempted to mount a late comeback with junior Nick Rosetti at the helm, reaching the Kings Point 20-yard line on a 35-yard completion to sophomore Kyle Douglass. A fourth-down pass from the 19 fell incomplete with 14.9 seconds left, however, sealing the defeat.

Muhlenberg’s first touchdown came when senior free safety Thanasis Petrakis returned an interception 36 yards for a touchdown.

Senior linebakcer Tony Briscella prevented a touchdown by intercepting a pass in the end zone and also recovered a fumble. Junior linebacker Dan Walker made a career-high 15 tackles.

Senior Kodi Shay amassed 162 all-purpose yards, setting up the lone offensive touchdown with a 62-yard kickoff return.
