Man, that last game was tense! I’m still buzzing from it the next day. What a way to beat the Babas.
I watched the tape last night, and guys, that last drive of ours was perfect. Good play calling Neil, good choices, well done all receivers for catching everything and a huge back slap to Ben for a great catch over the Baba defender’s head for the TD. We pulled it out the bag when we needed it most.
Which leads me on nicely to the D’s ‘Last Stand’. Well done guys, goal line stands in flag are next to impossible, but you stopped them again and again. Dayle was on fire on that drive. The QB went to him on every play and he caught them all, running and sprinting all the way down to our 5 – but no further. A great bat down from Andy in the corner springs to mind. As does the crunching ‘tackle’ from Adam!
Well done all, it was a great game. And despite the Liberty game, it was a great tournament. We all played well. 3-1, not a bad result, and it certainly helps us in the league standings.
Now a word or two about the Thespians. I think you all showed balls yesterday just by turning up to compete. You knew you would be playing some good, experienced teams and you volunteered anyway. You all showed progress too. I remember one drive you had where you put it all together and moved decisively downfield, everyone catching, everyone running their routes, only to fall short of the endzone by half a yard. Next time you bang it in.
I do have plenty of video highlights from yesterday, but as I am off on holiday Wednesday I may not have time to do them before I go. I’ll sort something on my return – the same with a newspaper report.
