Havre de Grace took the lead for good at 19-14 with 6:07 left in the quarter when Sean Greeley scored from six yards out. The two-point conversion run failed.
The Warriors extended their lead to 25-14 with 8:24 left in the game when Jordan White made a juggling catch in the end zone on a fade pattern.
Elkton's last gasp came when reserve quarterback Jeffrey Day was stopped short of a first day on a 4th and 4 play near midfield with 5:47 to go.
Gresock added a TD run with 3:53 left and Havre de Grace added another score with 2:51 to play. There were no indications of a Havre de Grace romp in the first half. Elkton seized the momentum when Raiquon Estep blocked a Clay Harris field goal attempt. Estep then scored from five yards out 1:02 into the second quarter.
Havre de Grace responded with a 50-yard scoring strike from Gresock to Day.
The Golden Elks regained the lead with a two-play drive to end the first half. Quarerback Ray Johnson connected with Michael Vass on a 38-yard TD pass on the final play of the first half. The score was set up by a 31-yard completion from Johnson to Estep.
That would be Elkton's last points of the game.
