Tyler Palminteri had eight carries for 83 yards and three touchdowns for St. Anthony’s (6-0), which held on for a 41-40 win over Cardinal Hayes in a CHSFL game Friday. Hayes scored 22 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to get within one point.

Gregg Campisi completed 13 of 29 passes for 158 yards and two touchdowns and rushed eight times for 137 yards for the Friars. Andrew Hancock added four receptions for 60 yards and a score. Jesse Antonacci had a fumble recovery early in the fourth quarter and Charles Barsella led the defense with nine tackles.

St. Dominic 12, Nazareth 6: After his interception on Nazareth’s first possession in the second overtime, St. Dominic’s Tommy Rooney carried the ball the last four plays of the game — the final one resulting in a 9-yard touchdown to give St. Dominic (1-4) the win in CHSAA.

Rooney broke two tackles on a first-and-goal run in overtime before meeting another three Nazareth defenders at the goal line.

After a Nazareth penalty for leaving the bench early due to the clock on the scoreboard not matching up with the clock on the field, St. Dominic had one final play with no time left from the 15-yard line in the fourth quarter, trailing 6-0.

St. Dominic called a halfback pass off a toss to the left as Tommy Rooney found his brother Jack Rooney wide open in the end zone for the tying score.

Holy Trinity 58, Mount St. Michael 48: Umari Taylor had 25 carries for 269 yards and four touchdowns for Holy Trinity in a CHSFL game. Matt Ragno was 10-for-13 with 125 yards and one touchdown. Will Corchado had 13 carries for 118 yards and one TD for Holy Trinity. Jared Williams had six carries for 64 yards and one touchdown.
