Game 7 – A Homecoming Victory and Award!

Standard

Not a ton to say about the game – it was a rather easy victory. Final score was 30-12. #18 was uncovered – AGAIN – only this time our QB threw it just a little too low:

 

Nobody lined up across from him again! Pass was just too low.

It was a fun night though – Homecoming meant a big crowd that was quite enthusiastic. Our opponents are a fairly close by school so there were many friends on both sides. It’s a more friendly rivalry than some others so not as tense thankfully! It helped that our team dominated. However, at the end there was some drama – in the photo above you can see #10 for the white team scrambling over to cover this spot (he was the one who should have been lined up opposite #18). Those two had been bumping up against each other the whole game. Additionally, poor #10 was the victim of a couple of pretty fantastic catches from the star wide receiver:

#5 pulls down a one handed catch in from of #10

So, by the 4th quarter #10 was in a pretty foul mood. It reached a point where his shoving match with #18 escalated to him attempting to throw our guy on the ground -, and that drew a nice yellow penalty flag for a personal foul.  In fact, there were a lot of flags flying in that final quarter – it just got generally chippy and sloppy by then.

And now, on to the award part of the game – #18 has been starting on nearly every special teams play since the 4th game. He’s been instrumental on a couple of fumbled punts and tackles of kick returners. But you know the real way to a special team coaches (and punter’s) heart? Be there at the goal line to down a punt on the 1 foot line:

That effort earns you one of these:
