Conor Hearn doesn't have problems with adversity.

Of course, most of the trouble Brophy's quarterback found himself in Friday was his own fault. And when you throw four interceptions, there is something to be said for having a short memory.

The junior rebounded by throwing four touchdowns as well, leading the third-ranked Broncos to a 31-24 victory in Glendale Mountain Ridge's homecoming game.

"Too many mistakes,'' Hearn said. "We've got to protect the football better.''

The fourth-quarter comeback was needed when Mountain Ridge linebacker David Fresenius picked off a Hearn pass and returned it 46 yards for a touchdown, giving the Lions a 24-17 lead.

But the Broncos (3-0) tied the score with 7:25 left when Hearn hit Mike Giannola with a 40-yard touchdown pass.

Brophy's defense then forced a Mountain Ridge punt, giving Hearn another chance, and he didn't waste it. He hit Matt Smith with the winning 18-yard scoring pass in the left corner of the end zone with 3:31 to play.

Mountain Ridge's offense did not get the football outside of its own 20-yard line again.
