Sat. Pa. football: Episcopal rallies

Posted: October 28, 2013

Episcopal Academy rattled off 28 straight points to start the second half Saturday to come from behind and beat Springside Chestnut Hill, 28-20, in an Inter-Ac League game.

After Episcopal trailed, 14-0, at halftime, Anthony Feliziani punctuated the rally with a pair of rushing touchdowns from 3 and 26 yards.

The Churchmen capitalized on four second-half turnovers. Evan Butts forced two fumbles, and Christian Feliziani, Anthony's brother, had an interception and a forced fumble.

The win keeps Episcopal unbeaten in Inter-Ac play (3-0) as it aims for its second straight league title.

"It was a good win," Episcopal coach Todd Fairlie said. "All league wins are good wins in our league."
