Game Winner!!
« on: November 07, 2017, 11:31:07 PM »
Have to tell you about our Championship Game this year:

Background:  Our league goes by play count.... each game has 100 plays in it 25 plays a quarter so much more than you'd get with 8:00 min quarters anyway...

Situation:  Scored is tied 14-14 with 3 plays left in regulation the outdoor temperature is 23 deg. F.  We were up 14-0 at half but were getting nowhere in the 2nd half.   Anyway its 4th down and about 12 yards to go on our own 25.  I called time out coached the kids up and decided to go for it rather than punt the ball out bounds again for net 10-15 and I didn't like our chances in OT the way they were moving and we weren't and has saw power opening up again.  My Kid who is filming calls me an idiot in the video for going for it. 

This is the 4th and 12 Play call:  Nasty, Mouse, 16 Power Tunnel.   My 1-back probably does the worst half spin he'd done the whole year but it works!   Check out the video!

Were you strong right there?  Looks like it but I don't know the formations.  They were loaded up on your left, I don't get it.  Looks like the backers were shifted that way, they had no defense on the perimeter.  Frankly, regular power right might have gone to the house...

We have a balanced line and they had stopped power all 3rd and 4th quarter I was having a bit of success with 45 Reverse and Jet sweep to our weak side so might have been that or they just screwed up out of a time out where they thought we were punting.
