Towers advance to EFAF Cup semifinals


Having lost by one point in a 7-6 mud fest in London two weeks prior the recipe for the Towers was clear; Win by two points or more at home. And when the dust settled after a riveting back-and-forth game, the Towers celebrated a hard fought 20-18 win.

The first half of the game was not the offensive shoot-out that one might have expected. Rather the first half was more a case of missed opportunities interspersed by various big plays. In fact with the first quarter ending in a 0-0 tie, the first score came with 6:49 left in the second quarter.

The Towers got on the score board first when a Blitz snap sailed over the head of QB Fred Boyle deep in Blitz territory. Boyle himself touched the ball at the Blitz one, but never gained possession, which allowed Towers LB Phillip Hargett to scoop up the ball and dive into the endzone.

In a twist of fate, the Blitz only got possession so deep in their own territory after the Towers attempted and missed a 35-yard field goal.

Less than five minutes later the younger Hargett brother, WR Patrick Hargett, scored the second Towers touchdown. It was a beautiful read-and-react play by Hargett and QB JR Artozqui. Seeing the safeties roll into a cover-3, Hargett adjusted his corner route to a skinny post and Artozqui – seeing the exact same thing – hit Hargett perfectly 35 yards down the field. Hargett outran the Blitz defenders the last 15 yards to the endzone for a 50 yard pass play as the game clock hit the two-minute warning.

In the 3. quarter the Blitz came out swinging. And passing. They moved the ball seemingly at will and scored three times – two touchdowns and a safety – to take the lead before the Towers got back on top for good in the 4. quarter.

Oddly enough the Blitz scores were very similar to the Towers’ scores. Blitz QB Fred Boyle practically delivered a copy of Hargett’s touchdown, when he hit WR Jack Daley for a 47-yard score. Later the Blitz defense put point on the board courtesy of a Towers’ turnover, when Enoch Kankombo took a deflected JR Artozqui pass five yards to the endzone.

Finally the Blitz scored a safety, when a punt snap sailed high over the head of punter Kristian Rasnis. The punt rolled into and out of the back of the endzone.

Not being done making copies of previous plays, Artozqui hit Patrick Hargett for 38 yards on a similar play to the one Hargett scored on earlier. This time, however, the terrible turf monster got the better of Hargett on the 1-yard line. Artozqui then took care of business on the ground himself one play later.
