Friday Night Legends
Game Recap – 2nd Quarter
Friday Night Legends is a football board game that uses actual team statistics, play calling and some luck to determine the outcome – kind of like real life! In this series, we will take some of these great teams we have compiled and give you a write-up of how the two played using Friday Night Legends.
2015 Arygle Eagles (14-2) vs 2017 Wimberley Texans (13-2)
The teams started off the 1st quarter tentative until Wimberley pulled away off Argyle’s miscues (1st QTR recap)
Argyle begins with the ball on their own 22 and a 3 point deficit (10-7.) The Eagles finally put together a very long drive with a lot of passing that ate up nearly half of the quarter. They switched things up calling a draw play and got the ball inside the red zone only to FUMBLE. A Wimberley defender picked up the loose ball and sprinted 80 yards for the touchdown outracing stunned Eagle players. It was yet another Argyle misstep and it made the score 20 – 7 with 6:40 to go in the half.
Argyle began again down by 13 points with the ball on their own 20. Their fourth 15 yard penalty stalled another drive forcing them to punt to Wimberley’s 37. Wimberley responded by driving the length of the field and burning most of what remained of the quarter. They capped the drive off with the 4 yard touchdown run to extend their lead 27 to 7.
Not ready to throw in the towel, Argyle took over with 1:50 remaining in the house and drove valiantly but ran out of time facing fourth and one at their own 49 with just 10 seconds left on the clock. A screen pass broke into the open and it looked like the eagle receiver would go all the way but was tripped up at the 11 yard right line as time ran out in the half. They went into the break with 60 yards in penalties versus Wimberley’s 10 and facing a deficit of 27 to 7, but they will begin with a ball in the second half.
Will the bad luck continue for the Argyle Eagles or will they straighten up and fly right? For the Texans of Wimberley, will they get complacent and relax with the lead or continue to drive nails in the coffin?
2017 Wimberley 27, 2015 Argyle 7
