2017 Game 12: Hombres 15, Grizzlies 12
Here’s a play-by-play recap of the game:
The Grizzlies open the game with some short plays for 3 but stall on 18 and it's the Hombres ball. They can't move the ball either and go for it on 4th down with a throw to Dayne for a TD. Extra points are good on a Clay diving catch. Grizzlies 0, Hombres 8.
The Grizzlies are playing a short game and pick up yardage with a few catches by Bobby. They go for it on 4th and 5 from the 25 and Effie makes a great catch just past midfield into Hombres territory. QB Brandon takes the next play- a 15 yard run for another 1st down. The next play is a pitch to Effie and back to Brandon and a pickup of 17 yards. A toss to Aaron gives them a TD. Extra points are no good. Grizzlies 6, Hombres 8.
The Hombres pick up some first downs on a few Dayne catches and a Michael run. Another 4th down for the Hombres fails and the Grizzlies get it back on the 25. Aaron and Lee help pick up a first. Now it's 3rd down at midfield and Tiffany catches a lob and runs for 18 yards. Effie gets 10 with a rough and tumble catch. Brandon runs for 9 to the 1 and on the next play, Aaron is in the endzone. Extra points are no good. Grizzlies 12, Hombres 8. 50 seconds to go in the half.
With 25 seconds remaining in the half, the Hombres, after 2 incomplete passes get sacked (Bobby) on the 8. The Hombres punt to the Grizzlies to midfield with 15 seconds to go. Brennan catches a 10 yard pass, but on the next play, time runs out. Halftime score is Grizzlies 12, Hombres 8.
The second half begins and the Hombres have possession. The Grizzly defense is making it tough for the Hombres. Dayne makes two catches for a first down. A few incomplete deep throws followed by another Dayne catch and defensive penalties put us at midfield. QB Michael runs for another first. But now it's 4th and 10 and Michael throws a bomb to Keith to the 10. Dayne catches at the 1 then catches a TD. Lots of time off the clock during that drive. Extra point is good. Grizzlies 12, Hombres 15.
Grizzlies QB is now Aaron. First down pickups from Brandon and Bobby bring the ball to their 32. On 4th and 8, David D gets the first down. But go 4 and out at midfield. Change of possession. Grizzly defense is staying strong not giving up much and pestering the Hombres QB who gets sacked at the 39 yard line on 4th down. 5 minutes to go in the game.
The Grizzlies are spreading the ball around. Effie, David and Bobby run for yardage. And now with 2 minutes to go, the Grizzlies are threatening from the 25. Aaron runs to the 11. Darrin picks up 5 yards then 3 more. 65 seconds remain. QB Aaron gets sacked by Clay for a loss of 4. Next play is an incomplete pass. And that's the game.
Final Score: Grizzlies 12, Hombres 15.
