It was a lopsided affair on a rainy Tuesday night when #MONEYTEAM took on the BCM Bruisers in intramural football action.
The Bruisers played their hearts out, but they couldn’t keep up with #MONEYTEAM and lost 32-6.
The game started out unfortunately for the BCM Bruisers when their quarterback left the game after the first play with a hamstring injury. They turned the ball over on downs on their first drive, giving it over to #MONEYTEAM.
“After we lost our quarterback to a hamstring injury in his first run of the game, we kind of lost morale,” said backup quarterback Chase Buchanan. “The rain is really putting a damper on our spirits right now.”
#MONEYTEAM took advantage of the momentum and capitalized on its first touchdown of the game. The Bruisers were not quick to give up, however, as they responded with a huge reception by Seth Dias, leading to a game-tying touchdown.
That was as close as the game would get as #MONEYTEAM ran off with the lead from that point on. They ended the half with two more touchdowns while playing staunch defense. Despite the daunting scoreboard, the BCM Bruisers stayed positive.
The rain did not help the Bruisers, however, as they failed to score for the rest of the game. #MONEYTEAM dominated on both sides of the ball in the second half, wearing down the opposing team’s limited roster.
They would proceed to tack on 11 more points in the second half to finish the game 32-6.
“All the credit goes to the special teams play today,” Travin Hardy said. “Special teams won us the game, thanks to our all-intramural punter Ryan Suiter. Hopefully next time ESPN will be here.”
Despite the crushing defeat, the BCM Bruisers were Tim Tebow-like in their commitment to the faith.
“All the glory goes to Christ,” Deric Hyman said. “We will praise him in this storm.”
