Bethlehem Catholic edges So. Lehigh in OT for District gold

Bethlehem Catholic tops So. Lehigh in OT for District crown

Michael McDaniel's seven-yard touchdown run in overtime gave Bethlehem Catholic a 27-24 win at Southern Lehigh Saturday night.

The win gives Becahi its first District 11 championship since 2001.

The Golden Hawks will face Berwick next weekend in the PIAA 3A state playoffs.

McDaniel finished with 81 yards on 19 carries and two touchdowns.

Becahi used three first half interceptions and a bad snap on a Southern Lehigh punt to build a 21-7 halftime lead.

The Spartans would battle back to tie the game at 21-21 in the second half, and took a 24-21 lead in overtime before Becahi dealt the decisive blow.

It marks the third time in the last four years that Southern Lehigh has lost to an LVC team in the District 11 3A final.

The Spartans end the year at 10-2.
