“Battle Under The Lights”:One of the best games and finishes of the Football Season:::SWG 14, Aycock 12

Final on the Wednesday in the Middle Series for this Middle School Football Season:
Southwest Guilford 14, Aycock 12
SWG Cowboys close the season at (8-0) and the Aycock Lions wrap up the year at (6-1)….
The way this game went calls for true Middle School Championship and you could take the Top Four teams with Allen Jay at (7-0) vs. Southeast Guilford at (7-0) and the Winner of that game could play the Winner of tonight’s contest for the “Guilford County Middle School Championship”…
Take the top four teams and let them decide it…
*****Tonight’s game had the second best finish to it, that I have seen all season long and the other Fantastic Finish came in the Dudley at Page game, but tonight, Aycock was down 14-6 to SWG with just 3 seconds left on the clock and Antwan Shaw scored for the Lions from one yard away and with the TD it was 14-12 SWG with 0.00 on the clock and Aycock got their chance to go for the two-point conversion and the Cowboys stopped them in the cold, to hold to win the football game 14-12….*****

The game was tied at halftime 6-6, but the SWG Cowboys grabbed the lead they would not give up, when they scored on a halfback pass play from Quantez Poche to Caleb Curtain and that made it 12-6 Cowboys, then SWG QB Devin Flowers ran the ball for the two-point conversion and it was good and that proved to be the difference in the game, as SWG moved ahead 14-6 with 54.2 seconds left in the 3rd Quarter and Southwest went to win the game, 14-6….

Coach Joey from SWG said this was the sweetest victory for his team this season and with the (8-0) record to show for their efforts and a great win tonight over a quality opponent like Aycock, the Water Jug Bath Coach Joey got after the game did not feel that bad at all….A great sign of sportsmanship as both teams met at mid-field after the game, took a knee and both coaches spoke, with Coach Joey in a season closing prayer and the Aycock Lions coach saying how much it meant to be able to be a part of a classic game, like the one we saw this evening at Southwest Guilford…
