CAPE ELIZABETH — Ryan McKean caught a 72-yard touchdown pass from Gannon Stewart on a broken play with 4:10 to play, and Cape Elizabeth edged Fryeburg Academy 14-13 in a Class C South football game Friday night.

Stewart bobbled a high snap and began running right before stopping and spotting a wide open McKean behind the defense. Colin Smith kicked his second PAT for the winning margin.

The Capers (2-1) went on top 7-0 in the first quarter on a 17-yard TD pass from Stewart to Matt Laughlin. Fryeburg (1-2) drew even on quarterback Calvin Southwick’s 1-yard run in the third quarter, then took the lead in the fourth on a 26-yard pass from Southwick to Isaak McKenney. The Raiders missed the extra point, however.

Fryeburg drove to the Cape 11 late in the game, but Noah Pillsbury’s interception clinched the win.
