St. Margaret’s would answer on the next drive to retake the lead but it would not last long as St. Joseph’s Darien Langley returned the ensuing kickoff 92 yards for a score.
St. Margaret’s would score before the half and also stuff the Knights on fourth and goal from the one to take a 17-14 lead.
A blocked punt returned for a touchdown with 6:45 remaining in the third made it a 10-point lead for St. Margaret’s.
Two touchdown passes by Hunter Barnhart in the fourth within three minutes of each other gave the lead right back to the Knights.
Down 24-21, Langley intercepted a pass, then caught the ensuing 20-yard touchdown pass from Barnhart to give St. Joseph’s a 28-24 lead.
A 25-yard touchdown run from Guggia with under four minutes remaining sealed the win for the Knights who will host Paso Robles next week.
