South Carroll 28 | Liberty 23

You can watch the full game online via Community Media Center of Carroll County here:

This was an exciting ending to a great game. With just over 2 minutes to go Liberty gets a TD on a 53 yard run to bring the game within 1 point. They decide to go for 2 and make it…giving them a 1 point lead (23 to 22).

A little bit later South Carroll has 3rd and long from their own 41 with 1:02 to play…South Carroll gets an incredible play that includes a stiff arm by the QB to avoid a sack and then a roll out pass downfield for a TD to take the lead and eventually the win (28 to 23).

Liberty had a chance at the very end of the game. 9 seconds remain in the clock and Liberty has the ball at the South Carroll 25 on 4th and 8. Liberty’s QB tosses the ball to the endzone and a great defensive play by South Carroll secures the win.

The final two minutes of this game was epic.

An important factor on the final scoring play in this game was the many players downfield for South Carroll.

I do not want to take anything away from South Carroll or the incredible play made by the QB on that scoring play with 1 minute to play in the game…but it looks like that play was supposed to be a screen and when the ball is finally thrown there are MANY offensive linemen well down field. Watch the video (2:11:36 mark of the video) and tell me what you think (keep an eye on where the offensive linemen are when the ball this thrown).
