Post Season Work
A meeting was called today to tell us, we were Bowl Bound! The New Orleans bowl invited us to participate and take on Texas Tech.
The news was awesome, but according to our sports network stations, Texas Tech was the overwhelming favorite in this match up. We tried really hard not to let that get in our heads, but everybody was wondering in the back of their minds, could we stop them? There was only one way to find out...
New Orleans Bowl
Geneva Bible (10) vs. Texas Tech (40)
Texas Tech came out strong and heavy, and while we did a couple 3 and outs, Texas Tech scored on both of their possessions. In the 2nd quarter, Texas Tech scored again, and added a field goal to the damage. At the start of the half, they were leading 24-0.
The third quarter wasn't much different. At the start, Texas Tech drove twice to our endzone and again, unstoppably scored both times. At the end of the quarter, Crooks was able to sneak in a 29 yard field goal to bring the score 38-3.
The 4th quarter was a little different. Our defense started stopping their drives but it was too little, too late. An 86 yard intereception return by Reese got our team in the groove, but they were quickly shut out when QB Lopez got stuffed in the back field for a safety.
We just couldn't get a grove going. We lost the game 40-10, an embarressment for our establishment. This might have been the toughest game that we truly deserved to lose, that we played all season. That's okay though, we will learn from this. We will get bigger, better, stronger... and we'll be back, next season.
In other news, the National Championship was held by the Rose Bowl in which Virginia Tech defeated South Carolina, 38-20. Congratulations to Virginia Tech for winning it all this year.
