(Click links for audio cuts)
It was an emotion-filled night at J. T. Christopher Stadium. In addition to closing out their regular season against the powerful Cave Spring Knights with a district title on the line, the G.W. Eagles also spent halftime dedicating a memorial to former coaches Alger Pugh, Sonny Wall, and Eddie Martin.
Cave Spring got an early 7-0 lead, but G.W. recovered a muffed punt, then converted on fourth down to tie the game. To the left, Antonio Fitzgerald's touchdown pass was the one that tied it up.
|Cave Spring scored again, but G.W. blocked the extra point to make it 13-7. Late in the first half, another fourth-down pass got G.W. into the end zone. To the right, Antonio Fitzgerald takes it to the house! Berkeley Furgurson made the extra point to give the Eagles a 14-13 lead.|
In the second half, Cave Spring missed a 50-yard Field Goal, but a penalty on G.W. set up a 45-yard attempt. Chris McDuffie blocked it to preserve the lead. With 2:00 left, Cave Spring lined up for a game-winning 25-yard Field Goal. It was NO GOOD! G.W. wins 14-13!!! To the left, players look over the memorial dedicated at halftime.
