Some background: in the first matchup between the Palm Bay Palookas and the PVAC Gofers, the Palookas won a defensive slugfest 9-3 after making two
goal-line stands in the 4th quarter.
In the second Palookas-Gofers matchup, things went a bit different today, with the score tied 21-21 entering the 4th quarter. PVAC drove deep into Palm Bay territory before having to settle for a FG and a 3-point lead, but Palm Bay responded with a TD for a 4-point lead, then forced PVAC into a turnover-on-downs at the Palm Bay 20 with 4:50 left. But the Gofers defense stiffened, holding Palm Bay to a 3-and-out and kicking off a sequence of 4 back-and-forth TDs over the course of 90 seconds. PVAC's shifty speed-HB Knick Knack is closing in on 300 yards of rushing and already has 4 TDs, so when Palm Bay re-takes a 4-point lead with 0:23 remaining, the Gofers turn to Knick Knack once again. But after a TFL on 1st down, the Gofers have enough time left for just one more play.
Trips formation, pitch to HB Knick Knack going left, and the 4 blockers on the left successfully manage to tie up 5 defenders, with only the FS Palooka Woodson left untouched to make the play -- and Woodson misreads the play and cuts inside
as Knack sprints for the sideline! The Gofers are knocking on the door of a miracle...https://glb.warriorgeneral.com/game/replay.pl?game_id=3031926&pbp_id=1014164
...until Woodson recovers, chases down Knack, and trips him up from behind! Game over! Palookas win! Palookas win! What a finish!!!
