The longest prep school football rivalry in the nation came down to the final play, but GA came away with a 28-27 win after blocking the game-tying extra point. The Quakers got out to a 14-0 advantage, but two touchdowns by Evan Spivey '23 evened the score at halftime.
PC went ahead by seven with just under six minutes in the third quarter. After a GA drive stalled, the Quakers missed a 32-yard field goal and gave GA good field position. Tristan Machado '23 hit Aidan Donahue '23 over the middle for a big gain, followed by a first-down run by Spivey to move GA to the PC 31. Tripp Capers '24 did the rest, scampering for a 31-yard tying score. Capers gave the Patriots a 28-21 advantage on a six-yard score with 4:30 to play in the fourth quarter.
Down but not out, PC drove down the field to score with 40 seconds to go. However, Brandon Truszkowski '26 engulfed the PAT, securing a one-point victory for GA. Capers and Spivey were named Co-MVP for their performances.
