Faith Academy holds off upstart Saint Mary’s Hall

SAN ANTONIO —  The Saint Mary’s Hall Barons had one more drive left as they trailed the Faith Academy Flames, 28-20, with 47 seconds left in the game Sept. 21.

A touchdown and a two-point conversion could have forced the game into overtime. But Faith’s Jake Metcalf crushed the Barons’ hopes as he snatched a Saint Mary’s Hall pass with 39 ticks left on the clock to seal the Flames’ victory.

The Faith offense closed out the game by running the final seconds off the clock, claiming victory.

The win also keeps Faith undefeated on the season at 3-0.
