What a finish!

Who says there hasn't been any exciting football at Mosaic Stadium this season?

Those nay-sayers obviously weren't in the stands for last night's RMF pee wee U of R Coaches Bowl showdown between the Vikings and our Unicorns. A back-and-forth battle featured numerous lead changes, and wasn't settled until the very last play.

With just nine seconds left on the clock, the Unicorns scrimmaged from our own 40 yard line, facing a 22-19 deficit. Our strong-armed pivot Jayden Lorenz dropped back and launched a bomb in the direction of fleet-footed receiver Jace Kobylansky. JK #21 hauled in the pass, evaded a couple of would-be tacklers and hauled butt to the end zone as time expired! Make the final Unicorns 25, Vikings 22!

How's that for a thriller? Or, as the players quickly dubbed it, the "Miracle at Mosaic". Our team was proud to dedicate the game to our offensive coordinator John Makie, who is in the General Hospital recovering from a mild stroke. That left the offensive play-calling in the trembling hands of yours truly, the head coach. Amazingly, we still managed to move the ball. That one was for you, coach Makie!

Thus ends our RMF season. Good luck to the teams still in the hunt for city championships this week in the pee wee and bantam divisions.

Congratulations, Unicorns! It was a good game, and the teams were pretty evenly matched, but I think the better coach's team won.

Good job!
