Nakazi Terry raced 61 yards down the side­line for a touch­down, giv­ing Scran­ton a nine-point lead with un­der three min­utes to play.

That was enough time for Joseph Fag­nano.

Wil­liamsport’s quar­ter­back hit on 10 of his last 11 passes, his fi­nal one an 18-yard touch­down to Colin Es­pos­ito that helped cut the deficit to four points, then La­trelle Jack­son turned a Knights turnover into a game-win­ning, 32-yard score as the Mil­lion­aires stunned Scran­ton, 38-34, at Me­mo­rial Sta­dium on Fri­day night.

Wil­liamsport (5-1) climbed out of a 21-3 hole, with Fag­nano com­plet­ing 19 of his 22 passes af­ter half­time.

“This was some­thing spe­cial,” said Fag­nano, who fin­ished with 275 yards pass­ing and four to­tal touch­downs. “The guys just re­ally came to­gether in the sec­ond half. It was a dif­fer­ent at­mos­phere. I’ve never been a part of some­thing like this. It’s amaz­ing re­ally. It’s amaz­ing.”
