5&6 SUPER BOWL
TRION BLUE CROWNED LEAGUE CHAMP WITH 6-0 WIN OVER TRION WHITE
In an All-Bulldog Showdown, Trion Blue used a stingy defense and just enough offense to edge Trion White 6-0 last Saturday morning to win Super Bowl V. Ridgeland High School was the site for this intense battle that had fans on both sides on the edge of their seats for the entire game. The Blue’s Christian Henderson was selected MVP as it was his 63 yard touchdown run that proved to be the difference in the game.
The game was one of the most anticipated contests as it was the first time two teams from the same recreation agency met for the league championship. The North Georgia Youth Football League has been in operation for over 20 years and five years ago began calling their championship “Super Bowl”. About 10 different recreation agencies participate in the league.
Trion White had sailed through the regular season and the post season tournament with 9-0 record. Trion Blue was 7-3 but the team seemed to get better with each contest. The White recorded two wins over Blue in the regular season but the past would not play a factor in the Super Bowl.
Both sides were ready to go on a cool but comfortable morning on Ridgeland’s artificial surface field. The two teams were recognized with a Friday walk-through pep rally at the elementary school and were led by police escort to the stadium on Saturday morning.
The Blue had the ball first and garnered three yards before “punting” to the White. The White Dogs began on their own 37 and two plays and a Blue penalty gave White a first down. Cam Pritchett then ripped off a 28 yard run finally hauled down by Porter Sentell. Now at the Blue 22, the Blue defense stiffened. Two runs picked up 0 yards and on third down the ball carrier was dropped for a 3 yard loss. The Blue jumped off sides on 4th and 14 but the White still faced a 4th and 9. Pritchett’s run netted only 4 yards and the Blue took over on downs as the first quarter came to an end.
Blue’s offense still wasn’t clicking as a loss of 4 and a fumbled snap forced another punt out to the Blue 43. But the White began hitting that rock wall that the Blue presented and ground to a halt. When White’s pass attempt fell to the turf incomplete the Blue took over on downs at the 43.
With the clock running down in the first half the Blue pounded ahead for 5 yards on two plays. A third down run was negated by a holding penalty and now the Blue was facing a 3rd and 17 from their own 37 yard line. About 15 seconds showed on the clock when the Blue snapped the ball. Henderson tried the left side of the White line but found several White clad Dogs in his path. The speedy Henderson reversed course and set sail down the visitor’s sideline, out running the last White player into the endzone for a 63 yard TD, as the clock hit 0:00. The point after was stopped at the line but the Blue had a 6-0 lead as the teams broke for halftime.
To begin the second half, Trion White took the ball at their own 35 yard line. Three plays gained 11 yards and a first down. Pritchett then passed to Noah Gann for a 25 yard gain to the Blue 29 yard line. It looked like White had the momentum and was headed for the score but as Lee Corso says “Not so fast my friend”. Blue’s defense rose up again and stopped the White at the 22 yard line, taking over on downs.
Blue was unable to move the ball after three plays and their punt ended the third quarter. The White took over on their own 48 and began a time consuming 10 play march. With Pritchett doing most of the running, the White Dogs sailed down the field. A key 8 yard run put the White into Blue territory at the 29. A block in the back on White erased a 9 yard gain and penalized the White back to the 36. On second and 11 Pritchett finally found that crease in the Blue defense and raced 36 yards for a Blue touchdown, but there was a flag on the play. Both teams held their breath as the referee signaled illegal procedure (not enough on the line of scrimmage) on the White, no touchdown and a five yard penalty. The White now were back at the 41. A ten yard pass to Gann brought up a 4th and 7 with the game clock winding down. After a timeout, the Blue defense made their final statement of the game when Bryson Roberts and Paul Hardman dropped Pritchett for a 5 yard loss in the backfield.
The Blue then when into victory formation and simply ran out the clock to preserve the win. The long awaited victory over the team that had defeated them twice during the regular season was theirs. They had come a long way from the first of the year to be crowned “Super Bowl V Champions”.
