Our Cavaliers faced a formable opponent on Friday, October 25th in what turned out to be an epic battle with a very talented McDonough Ram ball club.
McDonough had not lost an overtime contest since 2001 and had not been beaten by the Cavaliers in over 8 years.
After falling behind and being down 14 – 0 at the half the Cavaliers would not be denied.
They rallied back with a block punt for a touchdown and an inside run for another to tie the game up in regulation and forcing the overtime.
The Rams would start the overtime on offense and were stuffed on four consecutive plays forcing the turn over on downs and putting the opportunity for overtime win in the hands of the Cavalier offense.
Then on fourth down and with less than one yard to go the Cavaliers pushed the ball in the end zone for the 20 – 14 win!
The hard fought effort will go down as Calvert’s most spirited and hardest fought victories in their most recent three year history.
