Last-second field goal just short; Northeast tops Whittier

WAKEFIELD — Northeast scored the go-ahead touchdown with 32 seconds left but Whittier made an improbable comeback. According to coach Kevin Bradley, Niko Burke returned the kick to midfield then the Cats' Cam West completed passes to Julian Torres, Noah Mercier and Burke. Ben Hussey, who booted his second field goal of the season earlier in the game, attempted a long 44-yard with a second to play. But it fell just a few yards short and the hosts (now 6-2) prevailed 18-16. West threw TD passes to Mercier and Burke. Linebacker Jyzaiah Ferreira and free safety Burke "were all over the place," said Bradley. The loss will likely keep the Wildcats (4-4) out of the playoffs. Pairings will be announced Monday.
