    I did under estimate PR but than again, when you commit 5 turnovers you are going to keep the other team in the game. Taylor really wasn't pressured on his picks, just threw some bad throws, all in all, got to give credit to PR O-line, they pushed us around all night. Taylor put the team on his back in that last drive and he is a true champion. Grateful to call him a friend, he truly has the heart of a champion. Congrats Havelock and New Bern!

    redandblack - your guys deserved the win...I knew PR had some game, but after that 1st drive I was wondering where it was at - turns out the offenses were all over it...was a great game to watch and it must have been a great game to win...you don't get to see too many finals like that - congrats...

    Honestly thought yall would ROLL. Every mistake is costly in a big game like that.

    PR is as good a team as I have seen in the last 3 years. I'll be the first to say how wrong I was in underestimating them. It was one of those games that you left saying "holy s%%%, holy s%$^, holy s$%$!!!." I never thought PR had that much, but like I said-I was as wrong....Wow, what a game! Look for them to be back in it again next year.

    Amazing game from both teams. People were expecting this PR squad to go. 500 this year. Will be interesting with PR,Butler and Independence battling it out next year.

    You got to see a classic - good day to be a NB fan...last team with the ball got it done...thought folks were underestimating PR...NB's character showed at the end...champions do that...looked like Taylor wouldn't let them lose...he might not have had his best game but his leadership was the difference IMO...

    NB overcame a ton of mistakes to win... NB imo watching all there games this year played one of there worst games but still found a way to win... But you guys have to give props to pr... they played one heck of a game... I was not expecting the game to be that close at all... I wondered what happened to our bend but dont break defense thats been there all year! Glad to escape with a W!

    piratefball172 - and what was the shocker was the way the O line for PR was opening things up all night - has anybody pushed NB around like that?...the long runs I thought would have been NB's forte, but they ground it out hard and their QB while not at his best (I'm guessing?) still got it done when needed...still anybody's game from the get go - but the champion won...

    I'm still shocked PR ran for over 300 yards on that defense. 130 by Duffy, 178 by Rogers with really no threat of a passing game. Good job by the PR offensive line. It pays to have a great senior QB like Taylor. Came up big in crunch time

    tough loss for Porter Ridge but props to NB for holding them to a FG when they fumbled on their own 13...

    TD NB. Watkins bulls his way in from about the 3.

    Here comes NB. Sneak by QB on 4th an inches. Big pass to Cherry. Good run by Taylor.

    1:37 left at the PR 6 yd line

    NB defense holds PR to A FG.

    38-33 PR. 6 min left. PR to kick off

    NB WR fumbles deep in his own territory. ouch.

  • bullcityvillage Nov 30, 2012
    Sports Legend

    Yeah. Watkins is a load for PR but he just has to run North/South. NB will still spread it around I think though.

  • bullcityvillage Nov 30, 2012

    NB forces a punt

  • Scotsfan Nov 30, 2012

    Pr has yet to stop #14 Watkins. I'd give them a big dose in the 4th quarter. I think his size is tough on pr's defense

  • bullcityvillage Nov 30, 2012
    Sports Legend

    Defense is getting gashed. Now they bailed PR out by getting a facemask on 2nd and long

  • piratefball172 Nov 30, 2012

    All that talk about a stingy defense and great kicking game....might come back to haunt them

  • dfmlythr Nov 30, 2012

    Missed field goal MIGHT hurt in the end?

    I expected more from him this week.

  • bullcityvillage Nov 30, 2012

    3 picks now although the last was a hail mary.

    @ronnie,

    he is really not getting pressured. he's just making inaccurate throws.

  • FightingScots Nov 30, 2012

    The turn overs will hurt, They pretty much cost us our last game. Sounds like PR is holding some pressure on JT.

  • bullcityvillage Nov 30, 2012

    PR intercepts bad pass by Taylor. what a roller coaster for these fans. lol. Not impressed with his passes tonite. 2 picks

  • bullcityvillage Nov 30, 2012

    Wow PR botches FG snap and then K gets intentional grounding.

  • FightingScots Nov 30, 2012

    I guess we as Scotland high school Fans learnt them a good lesson last. Porte ridge is playing better than i did assume.

  • bullcityvillage Nov 30, 2012

    Both defenses make stops and force punts. Bad call by refs on fair catch interference

  • piratefball172 Nov 30, 2012

    He would be a starter day 1 and stay on offense

  • bullcityvillage Nov 30, 2012
