Fenn vs. Dexter
success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage that continues to count
Everyone goes through a hard time. For me it was when my football team lost against Dexter in a very close game. We were up by a lot with the third and fourth quarter left, but we ended up choking the game in overtime. The team was very sad because we knew we could’ve easily beat them. It was a Friday evening and the team was facing Dexter Southfield at 4pm, on the turf. We were very pumped and we felt like we were gonna win.We started off the first two quarters strong scoring two touchdowns. At halftime we were in full control and we knew we had the game in the bag. In the third quarter we slowed down our tempo, and we let Dexter catch up. They scored two quick touchdowns, and just like that they were back in the game. After both teams getting their opportunity and failing to score, we headed to overtime. We got the ball first, and we scored on fourth down, but unfortunately missed the two point conversion. When they were on offense they scored and they made the two point conversion. This lost was very devastating because we came so close, but fell a little short.Although the team lost to Dexter, we kept our heads up and we just looked forward to the next game against Dexter, which would end up being our last game of the season. In that game we played very well and ended up beating Dexter in a game winning touchdown and two point conversion. The final score was 8-6 and we were happy we ended our season on a win. Losing to Dexter the first time was a real heartbreaker, but the second time we played them, we made sure to make Dexter leave with their heads down. If it wasn’t for hard work, grit and perseverance we would not have beat dexter. I’ll end by saying if someone knocks you down, get up and knock them down.
