We all arrived to the new and beautiful Kraft Family Sports Campus. It was clear and windy ready to play, as we kicked off the night with the 3rd place game Tryna Score scored and scored again as their defense shut down the Blindhawks. About halfway through the first half it started pouring, but that didn't stop Tryna Score from the touchdown. At halftime it was 32-0 Tryna Score, everyone headed to the locker rooms to prevent their things from getting soaked. Once everyone got back to the field after an extended halftime Tryna Score stopped the Blindhawks from scoring once again, then Tryna Score came down the field and got the touchdown with the 2 point conversion. Once again the Blindhawks got stopped and we decided to call the game with a final score of 40-0 Tryna Score taking the 3rd place medals, congratulations to an amazing season.
Finally our final game of the season and man what a game. It was raining on and off but that didn't stop Wolfpack from scoring on their first drive, on defense they contained Yaakov Rabinowitz aka "Rabbit" to make the stop and went down the field on offense to score again taking the lead 13-0. New England Patriots picked up their heads went down to score to end off the first half with Wolfpack leading 13-7. The second half started with clear skies as everyone was cold and shivering ready to finish off the last half of the season. Wolfpack started with the ball and got the first down but New England Patriots bent and didn't break to make the stop. They then went to their leader "Rabbit" twisting and turning down the field getting the first down and then almost scoring, as "Rabbit" faked the run and threw the TD to tie the game as they failed to get the extra point. Wolfpack came down the field and did the same with their own superstar Moshe Nathan got a short pass and took it down field for the first down. Then little by little they went down the field to finally score on 3rd down to take the lead 20-13. With a defensive stop on both sides we got down to the 1 minute warning and New England Patriots got the ball back with 42 seconds left for the final drive. They used their superstar as a diversion and completed a few passes with the younger kids Moshe Rabinowitz and Tzviki Solovachik to get the first down and a little more. Tani Greenwald was completing pass after pass as they kept stopping the clock with getting out of bounds and drawing the defense off sides. It was now 4th and goal from the 6 yard line, the New England Patriots drew up one last play Tani then threw a beautiful out route pass to a diving Yaakov Rabinowitz in the end zone but unfortunately it slipped through his hands to end the game. Wolfpack are the champions holding off New England Patriots 20-13. Congratulations to both teams on an amazing season and congratulations to Moshe Nathan on winning the MVP by popular vote and amazing playing the whole season.
