We were down 14-0 with 7 minutes to go and came back to win 15-14. Scored on a Hailmary that my son threw and got drilled on as the clock hit zero. We were going to kick to tie (after we talked about it), but the other team called timeout because they had too many men out there and to set up extra point block. Sent offense out there and scored on the 2 point conversion to win 15-14.
We executed two hurry up drives perfectly and preserved two timeouts just right to decide exactly when to draw a line in the sand to make a stop to get the ball back.
Won against a team that has been in 5 straight state championship games winning two of those. Was 0-3 against them at their place. Same team that we beat at home last year, that then beat us in overtime in the semi-finals.
This really puts us in the driver's seat for the region championship and gives us a great opportunity to make a run at state finals. Also, preserved our number 1 ranking. Super tough game next week against the number 2 team. Might get destroyed next week, but gonna enjoy this one tonight and tomorrow!
We usually have a 24 hour rule to mourn or celebrate, but told the guys that they get 48 hours after that win (that and it is Thursday).
What a game!!
