The Brunswick School football team used late game heroics to upend Salisbury School 28-21 earlier today at Cosby Field.

With less than 20 seconds on the clock and the Bruins trailing 21-20, Brunswick quarterback Billy O’Malley went for the handoff to Malik Wilder. From there, Wilder started to run, but instead pitched the ball to Richard Walston.

Walston cut back towards the middle of the field and tossed the ball back to O’Malley. The Brunswick quarterback then stepped back and unloaded a pass to Wilder down the sideline, who caught the ball and sprinted the rest of the way for the 48-yard touchdown with mere seconds to play.

Not only did O’Malley success on the trip play, but he also was stellar throughout the game, as he ran for two touchdowns, threw for one and was seven yards shy of 200 on the day. Brunswick’s other touchdown was an eight-yard run by Kennedy, who finished with 81 yards.

With the victory, Brunswick improved to 3-1 on the season while Salisbury fell to 2-2 overall.
