Football: Serra goes four overtimes

Written by Brad Everett on .

Serra Catholic-West Greene didn't appear to be one of the more appealing games on the Week 4 schedule, but the teams played a memorable contest that might have been one of the most exciting.

West Greene outlasted visiting Serra, 44-43, in four overtimes. It was the first WPIAL game to go more than one overtime this season and only the second game where both teams scored over 40 points.

Serra's Jason Cerniglia connected with Joe Satira for a 10-yard touchdown on the first possession of the final overtime, but the Eagles' two-point attempt failed. West Greene's Cale Miller then scored on a 9-yard run and the Pioneers made the extra point to pull out the win.
