LANGHORNE – It’s only week one, but there might be a game of the year candidate.

Regulation, and one overtime weren’t enough to decide the opening night fates of Neshaminy and North Penn at Heartbreak Ridge. Ultimately, the Knights edged-out the Redskins 34-33 in a double-overtime thriller.

With 2:01 remaining, and the Skins down eight, Brody McAndrew orchestrated a picture-perfect two-minute drill. Prior to the game-saving drive, McAndrew had thrown three interceptions.

“He’s a competitor,” head coach Steven Wilmot said of McAndrew. “He will never get down on himself, great competitors don’t do that sort of thing.”

The six-play drive was capped off by Oleh Manzyk’s third rushing touchdown of the game.

Manzyk, the first player to be named 1st Team All-State at two different positions in Neshaminy history, reminded us why on Friday night.

Offensively, Manzyk carried 12 times for 146-yards and three touchdowns. The six-foot-1, 205-pound senior had scoring runs of 56, 49, and 1-yards (see the two long touchdowns below).

Touchdown #1 (56-Yards)

Touchdown #2 (49-Yards)

Defensively, the senior had 11 tackles, three-sacks, and recovered a fumble in the first overtime.

“I’ve been coaching at this school for 24-years,” Wilmot said. “That was a top-five best individual performance I’ve ever seen.”

Despite Manzyk’s heroics on both sides of the ball, the senior came up just short of the end zone on a two-point conversation in the second overtime. The goal-line stop secured the victory for North Penn and ended the game.

“It was a great effort we had against a good team,” Wilmot said. “It was a great game, and I’m pleased with the way our guys battled. There’s a lot of positives to take from this game.”
