Lasf minute TD sinks Buffaloes
It was a good night for a football
game as the White Buffaloes played
their lust game of the season host
ing the Ontario Tigers Friday.
October 4. Even though there was
no hope of any kind of a chance for
a play-off spot in the GOL. The
best they could do is to end the
season with a good record for the
Although they were the heavy
underdog to Ontario, the Buffs made
a good game out of it. The Ontario
Tigers, who have already clinched
a spot in the play-offs as the number
2 seed from the league, and are off
to state no matter how this game
came out. The Buffs make a good
showing for themselves by getting
on the score board first and almost
held on to upset the Ontario
Tigers...scared the pants off of them.
The Buffs got the ball and marched
right down the field to score the
first TD of the game as Jason Har
ris went cracking over from the one
yard line. Todd Thawley ran in for
the two point conversion and the
Buffs were out in front 8-0. Ontario
was able to get a score and a try for
two points failed so the Buffs led
8-6. In the second quarter the Buffs
were able to score again this time it
was Joel Martinez who punched
his way over from three yards out,
a pass for the extra points failed.
After a couple of exchanges with
the ball, Ontario was able to score
on a ten yard pass from quarter
back Shipp to Kram and a pass for
the conversion failed leaving the
score 14-12 at the halftime intermis
sion. On the kickoff to start the second
half, Joel Martinez picked up a
fumble and scampered 23 yards un
touched to score and the conver
sion for two points failed leaving
the score 20-12 in favor of the
Buffs. From that point on it was a
defensive battle between the two
teams until late in the last quarter
Ontario intercepted a Buff pass in a
good field position and scored leav
ing the score 20-18. With time run
ning out and what appeared to be
a big upset sort of fired up the Tig
ers who marched down the field
once again. Recmo Smith inter
cepted a Shipp pass but a pass
interference nullified the intercep
tion giving the Tigers a first down
near the goal line, and with 14
seconds to go. Ontario scored as
Shipp kept the ball and ran in from
one yard out. The kick was good to
give the Tigers a 25-20 lead.
A lot of what-ifs popped up but
they don't win the games, so the
Buffs had to take it on the chin and
lose their last game a heart break
thriller. The statistics were pretty
even give or take a little. Both had
167 rushing yards and each had 12
first downs. Harris piled up 73
yards rushing and one TD, Joel
Martinez got 70 yards and two
TDs, Thawley added 24 yards. In
the passing Aaron Schneider con
nected on five of 13 passes with
Harris catching four for 88 yards
and Reemo Smith one for 1 7 yards.
The Ontario victory put the Buf
faloes to a two win, four loss stand
ing in the GOL and a 4-5 overall
standing for the year.
Joel Martinez carries the ball gaining good yardage during game with Ontario. This last game of the season was
lost at the closing seconds of the game.
