Ryan 32, Father Judge 31. That was the final, enabling the Raiders to wave bye-bye to a five-season, 22-game CL losing streak, and the 6-foot, 165-pound Agrio, a senior tailback and transfer from Pennsbury, made it happen.
The OT session was held at the far end of the field and Agrio (uh-GREE-oh) scored in the left corner. In the very last smidgen of that corner, actually.
The play was a counter.
"The guys all blocked to the right and I ran to the left," Agrio said. "I was trying my hardest to get to the cone. My instincts took over and I did what I had to do."
"I made a dive for the cone," he said. "I know they have that rule in pro ball, that if you hit the cone with the ball it counts as a touchdown. I didn't know if they had the same rule in high school. I made my dive and reached out with the ball.
"I didn't know if it was good, at first. Then, everybody was jumping on top of me and I could hear screams and cheers from the stands. Most amazing feeling of my life."
Agrio was hardly a one-play wonder. His final stats showed 33 carries for 246 yards - 2 short of Mike Erbrick's 1990 school record - and one touchdown. And perhaps they might have been better. He injured his left ankle in the second quarter and it remained tender thereafter.
"I went out for one play," he said. "But then I felt I had to get back out there. Leave it all on the field."
Ryan's linemen were center Ed Bier, guards Brian Robbins and Nick Werez, tackles Billy Dykan and Joe Hansbury and tight end John Liguori. Those guys also gave Ostaszewski the chance to run for two TDs and pass 5-for-7 for 89 yards and a score to Travon Williams.
"I'm always telling the guys to get their blocks, and hold their blocks," Agrio said. "I encourage them as much as I can. Now I'm going to have to do something special for them."
For Judge, Samir Bullock ran 20 times for 190 yards and one TD while Ryan Mackiewicz tossed for one (to Brandon Spatz) and burrowed for another. Dennis Boice powered 1 yard for the OT score, then Connor Foley hit his fourth PAT; he and Ryan's Joe Stock matched field goals.
Agrio, who lives in Yardley, is a strong student with engineering aspirations, and he's hoping to draw football interest.
He transferred to Ryan, he said, because a friend who had gone there provided a glowing testimonial.
"I thought it'd be neat to try a Catholic school," he said.
And Saturday night, in stirring fashion, his Hail Mary conversion dive gave it a win.
