Marchiol, a West Virginia commit, then ran in the two-point conversion to see Hamilton win 25-24 over Bishop Gorman.
Watch the incredible finish below.
ESPN’s national coverage of high school football this year has now seen two strange events.
Where before the network was somewhat bamboozled when it aired a game featuring a bogus high school team, this time, the story was more straighforward. Arizona’s Hamilton High School, down 17 points with a minute left, amazingly rallied to win the game.
Friday night’s game between Hamilton and Bishop Gorman of Nevada saw Hamilton trailing 24-7 with 70 seconds left.
Hamilton scored a field goal to make it 24-10, then recovered an onside kick. The announcers were in wrap-up mode at that point, giving scant attention to what was unfolding on the field. That is, until Hamilton scored again, making it 24-17.
That’s when the improbable became the incredible.
A few seconds later, Hamilton recovered a second onside kick. Hamilton quarterback Nicco Marchiol then threw a a 22-yard touchdown pass. Hamilton was within one, and courageously went for two points to win.
Hamilton HS (AZ) was down 24-7 to Bishop Gorman (NV) with 1-minute left in the game and came back to win 25-24! One of the wildest comebacks you’ll ever see
