Only thing I heard was that BCP was kicking a last second FG for the win and St. Mary's blocked it to ensure the victory. Really wish I could have went - was coaching- but should set the stage for a good one Fri nite.
The kick was not blocked. It had the elevation, but not the distance. One of the best games I've seen in some time. I think it would have been most enjoyable viewing for any fan, regardless of school allegiance.
SM was up 21-7 at one point, then BCP scored a TD off of a kick but missed the PAT. Then BCP scored again on a long run. Then BCP actually took the lead. SM was down 28-34 towards the end of the 4th quarter and they scored again to take the lead 34-35 then SM fumbled deep in their own territory(field goal range for BCP) with only a couple minutes left to play. BCP had a delay of game penalty. Then they were stuffed and lost yards. Thats what made the field goal attempt tough. Crazy game with a lot of momentum shifts.
SM comes out and takes a 21-0 lead midway thru the 2nd qtr. After the 3rd TD, which was a 75-80yd pass play to #20, Brophy's #17 returns the kickoff for a TD, 21-7. SM has 1st and goal from Brophys 5 yard line towards the end of the half but fail to score. HALFTIME: SM 21 - BCP 7
Opening kickoff for the 2nd half, Brophy's #17 returns ANOTHER one for a TD. Brophy goes for 2 but fails. SM 21 - BCP 13
Then #20 for the Knights returns the ensuing kickoff for a TD! SM 28 - BCP 13
Brophy comes back with a 45-50 yd passing strike down the middle to #5 for a TD, again go for 2, again come up short. SM 28 - BCP 19
Brophy gets the ball late 3rd qtr, and scores on a 4th and goal from about the 5yd line. SM 28 - BCP 26
SM punts and pins Brophy on their 10 yd line with less than 8mins left 4th qtr.... next play, dive up the middle by #17 breaks tackles, spins, breaks to the outside, breaks more tackles then outruns everyone to the house..... place is going BANANAS!!!! Brophy goes for 2 and gets it... SM 28 - BCP 34
St. mary's gets ball with about 6mins left and goes bout 65 yds in 2 pass plays... the 2nd being a 40-45 yd pass to #2 who makes a great leaping catch.... the kids like 6'5" and he needed every inch for the catch. SM proceeds to punch it in via the run with about 3mins left. SM 35 - BCP 34
Brophy gets ball and starts to drive.... #17 breaks up the middle bout a 30yd run.... gets to bout the SM 20yd line then CRRRRACK - FUMBLE.... SM recovers with 2mins left. On the VERY next play, SM runs simple ISO play and FUMBLE, Brophy recovers like at the SM 15yd line
Brophy gets stuffed.... incomplete pass on 2nd down then delay of game penalty sets them back 5yds and on 3rd down SM sacks the QB for bout a 6yd loss... Brophy attempts 42yd FG with bout 30 seconds left in the game and the kick falls just a lil short.... Knights hand Brophy their first loss on their new field.
BEST non-varsity high school football game I've EVER seen.
I'm not a scratch golfer or bowler. I can't read the stock market and I have a hard time remembering my wife's cell number. But I can call 'Flip Right Double X Jet 36 Counter Naked Waggle at 7 X Quarter' in my sleep. JG
