Final score: 13 to 14.
The Hurricanes lost the Regional Semi-finals by one point.
Here’s how intense it was. We went into the fourth quarter at 0-0. . . we scored, and thought we’d won. But the Aztecs scored in the last minute of the game. . . and we ended up in double over-time.
The Final Prayer
These boys fought their hearts out.
Coach James Bell gave the boys a great final speech. I don’t know how he did it, because everyone was so devastated. But he stepped up and reminded them what an honor it was to have come so far. And challenged them in facing defeat, to develop character.
It still hurt just as bad. But it was a great, and graceful, effort that showed real leadership.
So sadly, this week, no Breakdown. But I do have Pastor Bob’s final prayer for the team.
Thanks Coach Bell, Coach Giddy, Coach Bob, Coach Chandler, and Coach Patrick and the rest of the Hurricanes for a great season.
Next year . . . Florida.
