TIDE OUTLASTS RIVERHAWKS IN HEAVYWEIGHT SLUGFEST
Chesapeake defeated Tennessee 16-3 in week one, and while it looked like a one-way domination, it was anyone's game up until late in the 4th when Chesapeake ran away with the lead.
After Tennessee took a 3-0 lead, they held that score until early in the 4th. With 13:32 left in the 4th, Chesapeake HB Chris Rainey took off on a 68-yard run and took a 6-3 lead after a failed 2-point attempt. Chesapeake then hit on a 25-yard FG from K Paul Edinger and went up 9-3 with 6:56 left in the game. Chesapeake put the nail in the coffin with 2:07 left in the game on a 26-yard run from FB Brian Shay.
Great game for both teams, and the defenses.
COLORADO KICKER TRIPS AT FINISH LINE, BISMARCK WINS
Colorado kicker Brandon Coutu was having a perfect day - he was 6/6 on Field Goals and was lined up for the game winner from 24-yards out with 0:15 left in the game. The Wildcat kicker went wide-right and sent the game to OT.
Bismarck ended the half and then got the ball to start overtime, going on a 4-play, 45-yard drive where kicker Pior Czech won the game on a 47-yarder and a 21-18 OT win. Too bad for Coutu and Colorado on the tough finish.
Week 2 will be Sunday morning. Rosters due by 10 am PT.
