The Annapolis Area Christian School football team has shown some resiliency this season.  They have had their share of blowouts but they have also won the close games.

None have been closer than Saturday’s contest with host Baltimore Lutheran.  The Eagles used a last second, 21-yard field goal from kicker Ryan Slenk to complete the come-from-behind victory, 22-21.

AACS, trailing 21-12 in the third quarter, James Anderson scored his second touchdown of the game on a 10-yard run to cut the Saints’ lead to 21-19.

The score remained unchanged until, with two seconds left on the clock, Slenk’s field goal attempt split the uprights, giving the Eagles their 16th straight win.

AACS moved to 9-0 overall and 5-0 in the C Conference, while Lutheran dropped to 7-2 and 2-3 respectively.

The Saints got on the board first when quarterback Aaron Armes tossed a 26-yard strike to Dave Dooley in the first quarter.

Lutheran extended its lead with back-to-back touchdowns by Jay Davis, one on a 12-yard pass from Armes and the other came on an 80-yard run.

But Anderson’s 10-yard run and Slenk’s field goal handed the Saints a heartbreaking loss.

Anderson carried the ball 12 times for 112 yards to power the Eagles.  Quarterback Chris Chick went 10-for-19 passing for 155 yards but threw three interceptions.  Chandler Edmonds caught six passes for 103 yards.

AACS wrapped up the league title with the win and finishes its season with a game against Friends School on Friday at Arundel High School  at 7 p.m.
