Congrats to SC. Your O line was just tremendous. MCQeen is a special player and Bell was incredable tonight. He is now the heart and soul of this team. SC offense was just better than the Hoggard defense. With that being said, Hoggard defense played about as well as they could making the Scots drive the field and really limiting their big plays. At 32-7 with 10 mins left things looked pretty much over but Hoggard kept fighting and got back into the game. Those kids did not give up and much credit should go to them for their effort. I was not surprised that SC had scored 32 points at that point but I was disappointed that Hoggard wasn't throwing down the field more expectally to 15 who had single coverage. Personally I would have gone for 2 at 39-38 and I defiantly would have gone for 2 in OT. There was no way Hoggard was going to stop them at that point and there was no way the Scots weren't going to go for 2. Anyway, that's the coaches decision and that's the way it is. Great season for Hoggard. Those young men had a special season and were 1 play away from playing for a state championship. Good luck to the Scots, the Vikings will be pulling for you Saturday. You guys have lost your leader and stepped up and are now playing for a ring.
