Chance Omli bounced back from an early fumble like a man possessed, picking off the Trojans 3 times and also scoring one of the three Eisenhower touchdowns.

Omli was behind two of the five first half turnovers in the game, with Andover picking off the Tigers' Nick Hogan two times as well.

But after halftime, it didn't take long for the Andover offense to pick up. Less than a minute into the 3rd quarter, Fahnestock found Harper Jonas for a long score to make it 14-0.

But after blocking a David Kemp field goal attempt that would have gotten it to 17-0, Eisenhower found momentum for the rest of the night.

Omli got the scoring started early in the fourth to cut the lead in half, then INT number three set the Tigers up to tie it, with Parker Wenzel finding the endzone to make it 14-all.

After a fourth down hold, Hogan finished the comeback finding Mason Turney wide open for 6 more, and Eisenhower held them the rest of the way to clinch the win.

The win moves Eisenhower to 2-1 in Darrin Fisher's first year at the helm ahead of a big rivalry matchup with Goddard. Andover drops to 0-3, hitting the road to take on Kapaun next Friday night.
