Last night Girard Middle School took on Chanute Middle School in Thursday Night Lights! Unfortunately, the 7th grade Trojans were shutout by the 7th Rockets. Those little ones play their heart out!
The 8th grade Trojans then took on the 8th grade Rockets. These two teams put on one heck of a game! The score was 0-0 all the way to the 4th quarter. Late in the 4th quarter the Rockets scored a touchdown but missed the extra points. The Trojans answered that with their own touchdown…and, also, missed their extra points. At the end of the 4th quarter the score was 6-6.
Never facing a tie in middle school football before I had no clue if they were just going to call it a game or if there was over time. Low and behold, middle school does overtime! The crowd was stoked and both sides were cheering on their teams! In the end, the 8th grade Trojans came away with the win…12 to 14!
Tonight we’ll be at Columbus, Kansas for the Trojans vs. Titans Varsity Football game! If you’re not busy, come out and cheer on your Girard Trojans!
