Sometimes its bettter to be lucky than good… when Henry County missed a 22 yard field goal attempt as time expired on Friday everybody present would agree. The game opened up and looked like it could be a very high scoring affair as three touchdowns were scored in just a few minutes.
However, both defenses settled in and it became an all out war. Beech was outgained by 150 yards of offense but used a Petey Parks 95 yard TD return of a kickoff after the Patriots had jukped out 7-0 to tie the game and a Jackson Long TD catch with 7 minutes left in the half to cut the lead to 14-13.
The PAT was no good which turned out to play a pivotal role in how the game would end. Corey Edwards hit a 39 yard field goal at th eend of the first half to give the Bucs the lead for good 16-14.
Adrian Johnson finished off along drive in the third quarter to put the Bucs up 22-14 as again the PAT was botched on the snap. Henry Co. scored just minutes into the 4th quarter to make it 22-20 and went for two to tie the game. The running back fumbled the ball into the endzone where Jackson Dolan recovered it to preserve the Buccaneer lead.
Late in the game the Bucs faced a 4th and 5 situation and decided to go for it on the Patriot 35 yard line. The Patriots held and marched down the field as time was running out. They were able to overcome a holding penalty and converted on 4th and 10 at the Beech 30 yard line.
Methodically they ran the ball and got a first and goal inside the 10 yard line with about 1:30 remaining on the clock. The next play they reached inside the one yard line to make it first and goal inside th e one with 45 seconds left but on the very next play Dolan and Shemuel Osteen broke thru the Patriot line to drop the running back for a 4 yard loss back tot he 5 yard line.
HC decided to run the ball back toward the middle of the field on the next play but did not gain a yard. They called timeout to set up a game winning 22 yard field goal attempt. (*Had Beech connected on the two extra piont attempts earlier in the game HC would have had no choice but to go for a TD) The kick was WIDE RIGHT – Bucs win
