Duncan holds off late Mac comeback bid
Desmond Pettit wasn’t about to let this one slip away.
With MacArthur trailing by four with 20 seconds remaining, quarterback Racer Felter rolled to his right and lobbed a pass to Ryan Andrews. However, it hung in the air just long enough for Pettit to step in front of a stationary Andrews and intercept the errant throw, returning it 40 yards for a touchdown.
The pick-six was the coup de gras for the Duncan defense, which forced two turnovers in the fourth quarter en route to a 24-13 win over the Highlanders at Cameron Stadium on Friday night. The victory was the Demons’ first over Mac since 2009 — a 35-34 decision.
