The Green Fighting Irish vs. The Gold Bandits

On Thursday, October 29, 2009, the Green Fighting Irish hosted the Gold Bandits for the second of two playoff games in the Rochester Youth Football League. The first game was played on Wednesday, October 28th between the Purple Prowlers and the Blue Outlaws, and resulted in a Purple win (big surprise).

Since the Green B team didn't finish in the top 4 (they finished 5th), they had to turn their equipment in before the playoff games. They were invited to keep their game shirts to attend the A playoff game and support them. Probably the coolest thing for me in this was the fact that Elijah and 2 other players from the B team were selected to join the A team in the playoffs. Way cool!

The Blue Outlaws completed several passes early for significant yardage, and went on to score first. Green answered with a kickoff return for a touchdown, and would go score several more times against Blue, who would not score again. The final score was Green 45, Blue 6, giving the Green Fighting Irish A team a record of 6-2 in regular season play.

On October 18th, 2009, the Green Fighting Irish hosted the Purple Prowlers for a 2:00 PM game. The weather was not very friendly; 39 degrees and windy, rainy and at times there was even sleet...

The A's played well, but had difficulty stopping the Purple running game and #20. Unfortunately, the Green Fighting Irish were shut out by Purple by a score of 28-0. The Green A team is now 4-2, and is likely to play against Gold in the playoffs next week.

Today, the Black Panthers hosted the Green Fighting Irish for an exciting 10 AM game.

Despite a plethora of penalties (possibly the most penalties against the Green Irish in a game this year), the Green A's played well. Their persistence led them to their third shut-out of the season, storming past Black by a score of 28-0. The Green A team is now 5-1. Who's hungry for a victory over Purple?
