HENRICO COUNTY, Va. --  Patrick Henry, behind the play of QB/WR Hunter Hart, engineered a furious second-half comeback, then held on to beat Mills Godwin on the road 31-28 in week 4.

The Eagles, behind three more touchdowns from Wesley Duggar, built up a 21-0 halftime lead.

Duggar, who had over 300 yards rushing and seven scores in last week's win over Atlee,  rushed for 165 yards against PH.

But the Patriots steadily worked their way back into the game behind Hart, who had three rushing TDs, all in the second half.

Patrick Henry scored 24 straight points to take a 24-21 lead in the 4th quarter.

Godwin (1-2) retook the lead with just over four minutes to play on a William Abbott 1 yard run to lead 28-24.

Hart responded with his third TD of the night with just 20 seconds to play to give the Patriots a three-point lead.
The Eagles had one last shot as time expired.

Abbott threw a Hail Mary to John Williams who had the catch at the goal line momentarily before bobbling and dropping it as he hit the ground.
Patrick Henry is now 3-0 for the second straight year and will host Henrico next week.

The Eagles will host Thomas Jefferson.
