A LOT OF FIRSTS…
First Event Where There Were Two Recipients!
First Event Where A Recipient Was From Hood River!
First Event Where The Starting Score Was Higher Than Any Previous Years Final Score!
First Event Where We Had Not One, Not Two, But THREE Amazing Announcements!
First Event Where THE ENTIRE PIG BOWL WAS CANCELED AT HALFTIME DUE TO WEATHER!
When all the dust had settled…. well okay… how about… When all the mud was washed away…
Oregon scored two real touchdowns on the field, but failed on both conversion attempts. Washington scored one real touchdown (shortly after Oregon went for it on fourth down near their own twenty yardline… what were they thinking?) Then as always Melissa Wykes was perfect on her 2 point kick straight through the uprights from 20 yards out. Then the monsoon hit! Lightening struck, wind blew, rain pelted & poured and a bulb blew out! So… after one half of play… here are the final results…
FINAL SCORE ON THE FIELD:
OR 12 WA 8
FINAL SCORE ON THE SCOREBOARD:
WA 1815 OR 1748
As we all know… that isn’t what its all about… so what else happend?
