Craziness in New Britain: Southern scores with 2:31 left to cut the lead to 28-19. Owls coach Rich Cavanaugh inexplicably goes for two hoping to cut the lead to seven but risking keeping it at nine and ending the game. (You're supposed to go for two at the very last minute, if you don't you risk never getting the chance to tie the game with one.)
They hit, and the game is 28-21. The Owls go for an onside kick, it bounces around, and Bristol's Matt Tyrell catches is and runs it 35 yards for a score to ice the game.
Crazy finish, ad Central is going to win a game in which it didn't gain a first down in the second half.
Time to write, I'll blog again if conditions warrant, but you can put this one in the win column.
