Final: ALA 24, NWC 21 Halftime was 24-7
Great running game and pass rush by ALA. A very good win and a solid team.
But the game ball goes to the Back Judge. Third down and 33 to go late in the first half, inside NWC territory. NWC CB appears to make a clean play to knock the pass away. But in comes the flag from the BJ behind the play...ALA drive extended resulting in a field goal. But I think my favorite call of the night was a punt return by ALA. Holding on ALA near the point where the punt was caught and then a personal foul called on NWC at the end of the play. Penalties on both teams. Offsetting fouls and replay the down? March off the holding on ALA the enforce the personal foul, if the PF was a dead ball infraction? Answer - none of the above. The long punt return stands....no penalties enforced on either team and no replay of the down.
The AIA really needs to stop finding their officials on Craigslist.
