The Chartiers Houston Bucs certainly kept Tyler Boyd in check most of the game. Without making excuses for the Bears they did have 4 potential starters on the sideline due to academic probation. With that said, the Bucs passing attack was effective when Chartiers Houston needed it to be.
The game started slow with neither team scoring in the First Quarter and around the 9 minute mark the Bears got the first points on the board with a QB sneak. The XP attempt was no good; Bears 6-0
The Bucs then proceed to go three and out and botches the snap on the punt to give the Bears the Ball on the 25. A few plays later the Bears reach the end zone and gets a 2 Point conversion to go ahead 14-0.
Then the Bucs come roaring back with 2 long passing plays to make the halftime score 14-13 in the Bears favor.
The 3rd Quarter starts as slow as the 1st Quarter did as both teams exchanged turnovers & punts in the opening 6 minutes of the quarter. Then the Bears proceed to have 2 drives end inside of the 20 on failed 4th down attempts.
Around the 5:28 mark the Bears punch it in on a 25 yard TD pass to Tyler Bold and convert the 2 Point conversion to make the score 22-13.
The 4th Quarter started w/ the Bears punting deep in their own end, the snap was botched and Tyler Boyd ran around in the end zone and found Terrish Webb for a 90 yard TD pass to only come back due to an ineligible receiver down field.
Again both teams moved the ball a little only to have the defenses win out until the 2:13 mark when Kaleb Susko hit Miles Williamson on a 75 yard TD pass to make the game 22-19. Then came the most bizarre XP I’ve seen in my life, the ball hit the soccer net below the goal post and popped through the uprights and was called good. Score 22-20.
The Bucs then go for the onside kick that was recovered by the Bears. The Bears grab a first down and proceed to run out the clock.
The biggest story line of the game had to be PENALTIES, PENALTIES, PENALTIES.
Clairton certainly has tons of room for improvement as they head to Carlynton, and Chartiers Houston will have a lot of confidence heading to Bishop Canevin to take on the Cruisaders.
