The Woodbridge High School football team used a last-minute punt block and a last-gasp touchdown pass to stay in the hunt for a Henlopen Conference Southern Division title.

Woodbridge lineman Bobby JamesThe Raiders, faced with winning all of their remaining games to have a shot at a Division II state tournament berth, got the first of those wins in dramatic fashion when John Passwaters hit running back Andre Cannon with a 25-yard touchdown pass with 30 seconds to go.

The play was set up by a blocked punt by defensive end Bobby James with 41 seconds remaining.

It was the second straight week that Passwaters has figured prominently in a last-minute Woodbridge win. On Oct. 12, Passwaters nailed a 30-yard field goal to give the Raiders a 16-13 win over Smyrna.

The pass lifted Woodbridge to 2-1 in the South and 4-3 overall. Lake Forest dropped to 1-2 and 2-4.

Jamil Young picked off a last-ditch pass attempt by the Spartans to seal the victory and hit A.J. Neal with a 15-yard touchdown pass.

Lake Forest's Joe Scott rushed for 131 yards o 34 carries. The Spartans had gone ahead 17-14 with 4:43 left on a 31-yard field goal by Dathan Zabel but after stopping Woodbridge on downs, failed to convert a third-and-seven in the final minute.

Woodbridge hosts Seaford in its Homecoming game on Friday, Oct. 26, in another Henlopen South game. Seaford dropped to 1-2 in the South and 2-4 overall with a 32-16 loss to Smyrna on Oct. 19. Seaford defeated Lake Forest 31-21 on Oct. 12.
