A relatively quiet football game, highlighted by strong defensive play and untimely turnovers through three quarters, turned into a three-minute scoring fest early in the fourth, but the Albany Warriors survived the storm and won at Princeton on Friday night, 27-14, in a game broadcast on Hot Country Z 101.7.

Princeton's defense struggled through the night to control Albany junior running back Drew Cottrill, who opened the scoring on a one-yard touchdown run with 6:13 left in the second quarter. A 20 yard scoring pass from Bain to Wilmes with 47 seconds left in the half made the score 14-0 Warriors. Princeton, early in the second quarter, looked to have taken the lead on a 66 yard run by quarterback Brant Faulkner, only to have the run called back by penalty, one of 12 flags thrown against the Tigers on the night, adding up to 85 yards.

Albany, 31 seconds into the final quarter, took a 21-0 lead on a 10 yard touchdown pass to Sharp. Princeton's rally would start from that point, as Faulkner found freshman Cash Hartley in the front corner of the end zone just 79 seconds later, with the extra point by Joesph Lovett making the score 21-7. The Tigers gave up a long kick return to the nine-yard line on the ensuing possession, but two plays later, Faulkner made one of the standout plays of the season for PHS. Tom Johnson had the play-by-play call:

With the score down to 21-14 and the Princeton homecoming crowd at full throat, the Warriors were able to restore the two-score lead, with Sharp scoring from 57 yards out just 15 seconds later the Faulkner interception return. Princeton could not climb back into the game, with Albany getting the win and improving to 3-3 on the season. The loss drops Princeton to 1-5 overall, and 0-4 in Grand River Conference play. This week, Albany hosts South Harrison with Princeton challenging King City.
