The last two meetings between Rochester and Stoney Creek have been split, with Rochester pulling an upset two years ago, and Stoney Creek ruining Rochester’s bid for a playoff bid last season. This years addition of the rivalry game was every bit as exciting as it came down to the final drive. Rochester took a 17-10 lead with just three minutes remaining, but Stoney would drive the link of the field and score with just over a minute remaining. With the score 17-16, Stoney elected to go for the extra point in hopes of overtime. Junior Drake Reid had other ideas, as the standout wideout burst through the line and blocked the extra point attempt. Stoney would try for an onside kick, but Rochester would recover and run out the clock. The Falcons improve to 3-5 on the season, and will conclude the season with a crossover game against Southfield on the road.
