Lake Forest stuns Delmar on bizarre final play

FELTON — Austin Aguilar stood in the end zone, raising the ball above his head for the whole stadium to see with one hand and motioning to the referees, or really anyone would listen, with his other.

Few people were paying any attention to Aguilar though. About 40 yards away from him, the Delmar High football team was in a dogpile, celebrating what it thought was its first victory of the season.

Finally the referees confirmed what Aguilar thought. He had scored a touchdown with no time remaining to give Lake Forest High a 19-14 win on homecoming Saturday afternoon in a Henlopen Conference Southern Division clash.

Aguilar, Lake’s senior kicker, was attempting a potential game-winning 18-yard field goal with a second left on the final play. But the kick was blocked and the Wildcats stormed upfield as their bench ran to mob the defense.

The ball never crossed the line of scrimmage which Aguilar realized meant the play was still live. He ran back to scoop it up around the 11-yard line and carried it for his first ever touchdown.

“I was standing there (in the end zone) waiting for someone to react to me,” Aguilar said. “Even my own teammates had no idea I was back there.”
