Wilmington Friends Football

The Independent Conference title game rematch from week 10 determined who would get a crack at Woodbridge for the Division II title in Newark and Wilmington Friends pulled out a 14-point second half to beat Tower Hill 14-6.

Neither team had much luck through the air on a rainy day at Caravel Academy.

Coach Kevin Waesco's 'single wing' offense proved difficult for most opponents this year, but the seemingly twice-a-season matchup meant no upper-hand for the Hillers.

Tower Hill took a 6-point lead in the second quarter and rode that into the half, but a different Quakers squad came out of the locker room.

Interim head coach Rob Tattersall had big plays come from every phase of the game that turned into a recovered fumble, excellent field position and two short running touchdowns from Wyatt Nelson and Peyton McNeill.

After the metaphorical dust settled, both teams had left it all on the field and Friends gets a rematch of the 2016 championship game--as well as a shot at their first state football tile in 34 years.

For those keeping track, in Wilmington Friends' last football title game the Quakers beat Claymont High School 22-12.
