Stevenson produces big comeback victory
Sophomore quarterback Willie Bourban answered the question about whether he had enough experience to be a varsity quarterback for a perennial state power.
He threw 3 touchdowns to lead host Stevenson past Lyons 35-28 in a nonconference season opener Friday night.
Down 21-14 at halftime, the Patriots exploded for 21 unanswered points.
Bourban completed 19 of 24 passes for 145 yards on the night.
"I feel great that we were able to beat a great football team," Bourban said. "Hopefully we will be able to continue the rest of the season."
Lyons' Zachery Mahoney threw a 47-yard pass to Jemari Burks to give the Lions a 7-0 lead with less than 10 minutes left in the first quarter.
The two teams duked it out the rest of the half, with Lyons leading 21-14.
But Bourban and his teammates then took over. He threw a 22-yard pass to Matt Morrissey. Danny Nowak's 4-yard TD run gave Stevenson a 28-21 lead, and then Ryan Mass capped the 3-TD run with a 2-yard score.
"We beat a great football team tonight," Patriots coach Bill McNamara said.
