2012 5th/6th Grade Trinity 7 on 7 Runner Up
Great job again for the 5th/6th grade 7 on 7 team! Building on last year's momentum in this tourney, our boys came out strong once again. We were 3-0 in pool play beating St Edward and St Mary's easily in the first two games.
Many different players got a chance to catch a pass during these games. Our third game in pool play was against St. Albert. We knew they'd be good.
We trailed at halftime but tied it on a drive late in the 2nd half. Then we made our 2nd interception of the game to go up by 3 with a few minutes left.
We drove down the field to the 5 yard line as time expired. That victory earned us the #1 seed in the tourney.
Our kids were getting tired but we stuck together and played hard during the tourney. We played St. Agnes in the semi-finals. They proved to be no match for us. We beat them easily. Again, we were able to complete passes to many different receivers. The re-match was set against St Albert as they beat St Patrick in the semis.
The championship didn't start the way we'd like. A pass bounced off our receiver's hands right into their hands. We trailed 3-0. They scored on their 1st possession, down 11-0 early in the game. But we rallied by scoring on our next possession to make it 11-8. They scored just before half to make it 18-8. Our boys were tired at half but they did not quit. We traded TDs in the 2nd half and stopped their offense late in the game. But, it just wasn't enough. We lost a hard fought battle to the Vikings.
We were 1-1 against them on the day. It was obvious that we were the best two teams. Our final record for the day was 4-1, Runner-Up in the tourney again.
All of our coaches are extremely proud of the effort, enthusiasm and toughness our kids displayed for about 6 hours! Great job Eagles!!
