DOUBLE OT NOT SO SWEET FOR COMMANDOS THIS TIME
Friday, September 18, 2009


HHS had their 2nd Double Overtime game of the young 2009 season Friday against the visiting Golden Bears from Mt. Juliet.  Despite having over 500 yards of offense (488 yards rushing) and 22 first downs on the rainy night, the COMMANDOS lose their first District game of 2009 37-44 in the second overtime.  HHS held Mt. Juliet to only 9 first downs and 336 total yards.  The win secures the Golden Bears spot at the top of District 9-AAA with a perfect 4-0 record, while the loss puts HHS in 6th place with their 2-2 record.

The game couldn’t have started better for the COMMANDOS as they kicked to MJ, and forced a 3 and out.  On the Black & Gold’s first possession, #34 Whit Gray would take the first play 11 yards, and #3 LaDontez Bryant would take the second play to the endzone for the 2nd straight week, this one was a 60 yard run.  Richie Reichenberger would add the extra point giving the COMMANDOS the early 7-0 lead.  Mt. Juliet would respond quickly with a 74 yard gain on first down after the kickoff setting up a short TD run to tie the game.  HHS would then drive 77 yards only to be forced to attempt a 20 yard field goal that Reichenberger would kick right down the middle putting HHS back on top 10-7.  Mt. Juliet would then drive to around midfield before defensive lineman #61 Brandon Chapman would come up with an interception giving HHS the ball with a short field.

The COMMANDOS would drive inside the 20 before giving up a sack and having to settle for a 45 yard field goal that would be no good.  The Golden Bears then took the ball all the way to the COMMANDOS 6 yard line but the defense would deny MJ the endzone forcing them to take a 23 yard FG and a 10-10 tie game.  HHS would continue to drive the football on offense getting 3 first downs before stalling out around midfield forcing an HHS punt.  On the punt, HHS would have a bad snap giving the Golden Bears the ball only 15 yards away from the endzone.  Mt. Juliet would capitalize off the mistake 2 plays later on a TD run putting them on top for the first time in the game 10-17.  The COMMANDOS would look to score again before the half as they got the ball inside the 20 yard line, but would throw an interception allowing Mt. Juliet to kneel and go to halftime with the 7 point lead.

HHS would receive the 2nd half kickoff, and the offensive unit would continue to roll as they would go 70 yards capped by 1 yard TD run by #12 Elijah Howell; however another bad snap would lead to HHS not being able to convert the PAT keeping the Bears up by 1 point 16-17.  Mt. Juliet would return the ensuing kickoff to midfield, and then on a 3rd down and 7 yards to go, they would run in for a 31 yard TD.  They would miss the extra point making the score 23-16.  Gray would cap off the COMMANDOS next drive, as he would get 10 of his 97 yards for the game on this TD run which tied the game at 23.  HHS’s defensive unit came up big with a 3 and out forcing a Mt. Juliet punt.

On the next offensive possession for the COMMANDOS, they looked determined to go win the game as Howell had a tough run for over 30 of his team high 157 rushing yards for the game, before putting the ball back in Gray hands, this time for a 14 yard TD run giving HHS the lead 30-23.  MJHS would answer quickly again as they would run for a 20 yard TD run on a 4th down play, tying the game once again at 30.  HHS would fumble on their own 34 yard line on their next possession giving MJ the opportunity to take the lead, however the defense would rise up again helped by a pass defended by #4 Nigel Jones to force a punt.  HHS would drive past midfield before being forced to punt on what was the last play of regulation.  The teams would head to overtime tied at 30 a piece.

In the first overtime period, the COMMANDOS had the ball first and handed to Gray twice; he got the job done with his third TD of the night.  Reichenberger’s extra point would put the COMMANDOS up 37-30.  It would take Mt. Juliet 3 plays to score, but they would on a 3 down pass play to tie the game up.

Before the start of the second overtime, the officials spotted lightning in the sky and there was a 30 minute delay.  The Golden Bears came back out ready to play and took the first play into the endzone to recapture the lead.  HHS would have a QB/Center exchange fumble on third down that the Bears fell on to end the game with the final score of 37-44.

The COMMANDOS will host the Hunters Lane Warriors next week for their homecoming game.  This will be the teams’ last non-District game of the season.  Homecoming festivities will begin Thursday night with a parade starting at 6:30 at the streets of Indian Lake.  Homecoming Ceremony will be Friday at 6:30, and kickoff for the game is scheduled for 7:00 at Memorial Stadium.
