Wilson High School's Alphonso Tyler intercepted a pass with less than a minute left, and two reserve quarterbacks each threw a touchdown pass to lead the Tigers to a 13-7 come-from-behind victory yesterday over Sidwell Friends at Wilson.

Trailing by 13-7 with three minutes left in the game, Sidwell Friends took possession on its own 29-yard line. Three consecutive completions by P.J. Sacco gave Sidwell Friends a first down at the Wilson 31 with a minute left. But Tyler then intercepted and returned 67 yards to the Sidwell Friends 13 as the Tigers ran out the clock.

"The pass was partially deflected by one of my teammates {Thierno Johnson}," said Tyler. "He tipped it and it crossed over to me."

The Tigers lost starting quarterback Chris Frey with a sprained knee late in the first quarter and had to alternate between reserve quarterbacks Damon Arter and Carlos Diaz. With the Tigers' offense trying to adjust and the Quakers playing excellent defense, Sidwell Friends took a lead at the half. Sidwell Friends had scored after Jacob Waletzky recovered Arter's fumbled snap from center at the Wilson 25. Four plays later, Sacco passed to Meredith Ashley for a 13-yard touchdown.

In the third quarter Wilson's Odell Gilliam recovered a fumbled pitchout at the Sidwell Friends 14. After an interference call on the Quakers and an 11-yard loss on a fumbled pitchout, Arter threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to 6-foot-5 sophomore Melvin Tuten to tie the game, 7-7.

Midway through the fourth quarter, Wilson had excellent field position at the Sidwell Friends 34. Daryl Harris ran 22 yards off tackle and was brought down on a touchdown-saving tackle by Chris Buchbinder at the 12. With three minutes left, Diaz passed to Lorne Prince for a 12-yard touchdown in the corner of the end zone. Sidwell Friends (0-1) 0 7 0 0 7 Wilson (1-1) 0 0 7 6 13
