CARLISLE — When Altoona punted the football with seven minutes left to play down 35-27, it looked like Carlisle was about to escape by the skin of its teeth with a win.


The Thundering Herd had battled back from a 13-0 deficit and four lost fumbles to take the lead three times and had taken a commanding eight-point lead just minutes before on Ben Nix’s 52-yard touchdown sprint.

With the offense humming and the defense putting up a few big stands in a row, it appeared all Brett Ickes’ squad had to do was string a few first downs together and milk the clock to leave Ken Millen Stadium with a crucial Mid-Penn Commonwealth victory Friday night.
