What a way to end the season - AYF State Championship game - our 49ers versus the West Valley 49ers from the Phoenix area - in the wind and pouring rain. But nothing could stop our boys. It was an intense game and they earned every yard they gained!
By the end of the fourth quarter, the game was still tied at 7-7 and into overtime we went. The other team won the toss up and had first possession of the ball and four downs to get through the ten yard line and into the end zone, but with a lot of determination our boys were able to stop their drive to score.
We had a number of penalties that pushed us back to nearly the 30 yard line, making each drive more difficult... but the boys stuck to it and gave it everything they had!
And that was the final play - the drive that won the game!
I'll post more from the end of season party next week! xo Happy weekend xo - Jess
This was the most exciting game of football we have ever witnessed. Monkey Boy's team has went undefeated all season and were playing against the Tucson Rams (another outstanding and undefeated team) for the title of City Champions. It was an intense game and went into two overtimes. We won an incredible fete with a touchdown to end the tie for 24-18!!!
Tomorrow his team will play the West Valley 49ers - the Phoenix City Champions - for the State Championship title. It's going to be intense!!!
