Defense Win for Armwood 9-2

Varsity vs Plant HS on 9/5/2008
Posted Friday, September 05, 2008 by Mrs. B
What a game! Flags falling like fall leaves in the north in September. At times, it seemed our offense was playing against the referees....   The Hawk Defense was incredible - it was their win! Incredible blocking, rushing the QB and an interception. They must be exhausted as it seemed they were on the field most of the time.

Our offense got the first touchdown at the end of the 1st quarter and the extra point kick. Then at the end of 2nd quarter they got a safety. The halftime was a made rush to the crowded refreshment stand and seeing the many Hawk Alumnus, the various college scouts, some Bucs players  - it was THE place to be Friday ...the Plant  vs. Armwood game.

The game was televised by ESPNU - so the game time wwas extended and went to 11pm with all the commercials. Is this coverage really worth it? The game seemed to suffer from a lack of momentum. Players would set up get ready for a play and another  commercial break. Perhaps this would be a good polling question - The Value of TV Coverage.

It was late in the 4th quarter when Armwood finally got it's first earned 1st down of the second half. The Armwood fans went wild when Mr. H delievered his 1-2-3  First Down!

Exhausted fans left the game, relieved we won....but  know the offense is still is in need of gelling....DEFENSE - you were awesome! Thanks for a great game and win. Now, go home and get some rest! Our first home game is next Friday - Go Hawks!
