A.J. Coolbaugh scored an 8-yard touchdown and scooted in for the subsequent two-point conversion with 19 seconds left as the Red Hook High School football team edged host Woodlands, 39-38, on Saturday.
Coolbaugh scored four touchdowns on the ground, including a 69-yard burst in the second quarter.
Woodlands took a 38-31 lead with 1:54 remaining. The Raiders answered with an 80-yard drive. Even before scoring, Red Hook coach Bill Stutz said, his team had every intention of eschewing the tying extra-point and going for the two-point conversion to win.
“We were all in agreement that we would punch it in for the win, rather than try to tie it,” Stutz said. “We were gonna try to go right at them and finish the game, so everyone was excited and the energy on the sideline was high.”
Quarterback Nick Morrissey had a 50-yard touchdown run and, at cornerback, snagged an interception in the end zone in the third quarter for Red Hook (2-2). Linebacker Tristen Schiafo made nine tackles and Jimmy Mulvey recovered a fumble.
