AREA FOOTBALL -- Wayne loses another heartbreaker

Here are Friday's area football results:

Late score sinks Blue Devils' homecoming -- West Point-Beemer used a halfback pass to score the game-winning touchdown with less than a minute to go to spoil Wayne High's homecoming in a 32-28 decision at Memorial Stadium. The Blue Devils took a 28-20 lead into the fourth quarter when Mason Lee caught a 52-yard touchdown pass from Beau Bowers on the final play of the third quarter. West Point-Beemer came back, returning the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown and overcoming a missed field goal to score the game-winner on a fourth-and-15 from the Wayne 24-yard line. Wayne falls to 5-2 overall and faces top-ranked Norfolk Catholic in their home finale on Friday.
