Troy send two teams to the Super Bowl in Ozark
It was an exciting night for Troy Youth football on Monday, as both teams were competing in the playoffs against Brundidge.
And at the end of the night, both Troy teams were able to punch their tickets to the Super Bowl this weekend.
But each team had its own way of getting there.
In the varsity matchup, four quarters was not enough as both Brundidge and Troy went into over time tied at six.
After holding Brundidge scoreless on its first possession in the extra period, Troy took over.
And on fourth down, the Trojans used a little magic as Braxton Ganning found Montavious Dixon in the end zone for a game winning touchdown pass to send the Troy to the Super Bowl in Ozark.
“I’m at a loss for words right now,” head coach Darius Carlisle said after the game.
“I’m so proud of the guys, they played with unity and they played hard all night. We earned this win.”
Troy will be looking to defend their 2009 championship.
In the earlier game, it was all Troy, as the team in red cruised to a 32-6 win over the rival from Brundidge.
In that game, Gyjuan Baimbridge led the way, scoring five touchdowns in the victory.
This was the third time this season the Trojans defeated Brundidge.
“That’s tough to do,” head coach Shane Griffin said off beating an opponent three times in a season.
“We played well both offensively and defensively. This win says a lot about out team.”
