Game 2 Results
This weekends games were against non-conference opponents, as our league traditionally does not play on Labor Day weekend.
Age 7-9 won 36-14. Scored on first 4 possessions of first half to take a 24-0 halftime lead as the defense did not give up a first down in the first half. We threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown and had another TD scored late against our backups via the infamous sportsmanship inspired “Special Play”. We went to running clock in the 4th quarter. This team traveled 75 minutes to play us from Inner-city Omaha.
Age 10-11 won 36-14 as well after taking a 30-8 halftime lead. Playing against a very well coached and very athletic team that was able to run us down every time we got into the open field. First team defense gave up just 3 first downs in the entire game as we subbed early and often. Just 1 penalty called against this team this week. Great game with outstanding sportsmanship against another Omaha Inner-city team.
Age 12-13 won 36-6 in a game we never punted. Execution on offense looked tighter as 4 different players scored. We were ahead 20-0 at the half and had a running clock in the 4th quarter. Our backups played a bunch and we found a reasonable answer to our need for a backup 1 back.
While we do play in a competitive league and do play outside teams and in tournaments, we try not to go over 40 points in most games. Several of these game could have easily gone to the 50 + point range, even with aggresive subbing, as we are getting into a good rythem on both sides of the ball with all 3 teams.
This week we will work on some of the finer points of the game:
Spike- Stopping the clock
Victory Formation- Running out the clock
Last Play- Hail Mary play
