Super Bowl Bound

The Coal City Miners lightweights faced the Sandwich Indians in the second round of playoffs for a bid for the Super Bowl, winning 13-6 in a defensive battle.  The Miners' offense wasted no time at all scoring on the second play of the game with a 49-yard touchdown pass from Danny Norton to Timothy Jezik. Extra point was no good. The rest of the first half was a defensive battle leaving the halftime score 6-0 miners.  

Going into the second half the miners' defense started off slow giving up the play to the Indians making the score 7-6 in the third quarter. Moving into the fourth quarter the miners stepped it up a notch to come up with a victory, with Sam Lepper stripping the ball and going 20 yards for the TD. The extra point from Norton to Jezik was good.  

In the last four minutes of the game the defense came up with two huge stops with two interceptions, one by Lepper and the game winning interception by Jezik. Leading the defense in tackles was Giovanni Ferrara and Natty Baldwin with 7 each and also Lepper and Jezik with 6 each and a fumble recovery and interception.

"All of the kids played an awesome game, and I would like to congratulate them on taking second place in their division and wish them good luck in the Super Bowl this Sunday in Seneca" commented Coach Todd Sula after the game.
