SWANTON — Aren Harris’ touchdown with 4 minutes, 7 seconds left made the difference as the Blue Devils prevailed in a back-and-forth game Friday night.

Harris scored the final three touchdowns for Springfield on 31, 8, and 9-yard runs. He also had a two-point conversion.

Yet Swanton had the ball at the Springfield 2-yard line to end the game when Thomas Bryant was stopped short of the goal line as time expired.

Scottie Seymour scored the first Blue Devils’ TD on a six-yard run, Steph Robinson had with a 93-yard kickoff return, and Bryant Koback scored on a 41-yard run.

Swanton was led by its ground game — Matt Rainey rushed 27 times for 154 yards and scored two touchdowns (one receiving), while Bryant added 11 carries for 149 yards, which included a 53-yard score.

Jordan Nyler and Bryce McComb added short TD runs for the Bulldogs, who trailed 20-14 at halftime.
