North Central Football Falls to W-A-O in Thrilling Section Championship Game


SO GOOD. I’M LOST WITH MY WORDS RIGHT NOW.>>LOOKING TO JOIN WIN E MAC IN THE STATE TOURNAMENT WAS NORTH CENTRAL, THE NORTHOME KELLIHER LITTLE FORK BIG FALLS CO-OP. THEIR FIRST SEASON STARTED AS GOOD AS YOU COULD HOPE FOR, A 10 AND 0 RECORD AND A DATE WITH WARREN ALVARADO OSLO IN THE SECTION CHAMPIONSHIP GAME. WINNER OF THIS GAME WOULD ACTUALLY PLAY WIN E MAC IN THE NEXT ROUND. NO SCORE IN THE FIRST QUARTER. STARS WITH A METHODICAL FIRST DRIVE, BEN JOURDAN WITH THE TOUCHDOWN. THEY LEAD 6 NOTHING. PONIES ANSWER. QUARTERBACK GAVIN GULLIKSON WITH THE KEEPER. TWO POINT CONVERSION IS GOOD. THEY LEAD 8-6. SECOND HALF, SAME SCORE. PONIES HANDOFF TO BRANDON MILLER. HE COUGHS IT UP. STARS FALL ON TOP. ENSUING DRIVE, ON FOURTH DOWN, THE PLAY ACTION, JACK GILBERTS PASS IS TIPPED BUT FINDS ITS WAY TO ANTHONY CIPRIANO. HE MAKES THE CATCH, AND THE STARS GO UP 12 TO 8. PONIES DRIVING WITH JUST A MINUTE LEFT IN THE GAME. THE GIVE TO MILLER, BREAKS ONE TACKLE, FIND THE END ZONE. PONIES UP 14 TO 12. LAST CHANCE FOR THE STARS, TRYING FOR THE WINNING SCORE. GILBERT PICKED OFF BY EARL MCGREGOR, GAME OVER; RIGHT? WRONG. THE STARS HOLD HIM UP AT THE END OF THE RETURN, STRIP IT OUT AND RECOVER. THEY’RE BACK IN BUSINESS. IN THE RED ZONE, 12 SECONDS LEFT. GILBERT FINDS CAM MCROBERTS ON THE SIDELINES, OUT AT THE 7. FIVE SECONDS, LAST PLAY FOR THE STARS. GILBERT ROLLS OUT, CAN’T FIND ANYONE AND IT IS INTERCEPTED. THAT WOULD BE YOUR BALL GAME, AS THE STARS FIGHT TO LITERALLY THE LAST SECOND, BUT COME UP JUST SHORT.>>WE WEREN’T ABLE TO CONTAIN NUMBER 12, BRANDON MILLER AS MUCH AS WE WOULD HAVE LIKED TO AND HAVING SOME KEY INJURIES IN THE BACK FIELD SURE DIDN’T HELP US EITHER, LOST COUPLE — COUPLE STARTERS ON OFFENSE AND DEFENSE. ALL OUT EFFORT. WE GET THAT FROM THESE GUYS EVERY WEEK. THEY MAKE IT SO FUN TO COACH THEM BECAUSE THEY PLAY ABSOLUTE TLOI THE LAST WHISTLE. — ABSOLUTELY TO THE LAST WHISTLE. YOU SAW THAT TODAY. WE’RE VERY PROUD OF THEM.
