Meyrick Lamb added to that lead in the second quarter with a 34 yard scoring run. After the Kanezo kick, Mt. Carmel led 14-6.

Andreychik would hit Garrett Llewellyn for back-to-back scores of seven yards and 75 yards to take a 21-14 lead.

Tyler Hodge tied things up for Mt. Carmel with a 75 yard kick-off return, but just before the half, Andreychik gave the Ironmen the lead, this time with his legs, scampering 16 yards for the score.

Danville extended their lead in the third quarter with a Dylan Friday 22 yard field goal, going up 31-21.

Mt. Carmel cut it to three points in the fourth as Rob Varano hit Lamb with a 36 yard scoring pass play, but Andreychik sealed the win for Danville with a three yard scoring punch, giving the Ironmen the 38-28 win.
