Concord-Carlisle 8, Bedford 7

Friday, Sep. 27, 2013, at Bedford

After senior running back Jeff Adegbe trotted into the end zone, the ensuing play seemed like a formality. Now trailing 7-6, Concord-Carlisle coach Mark Robishaud sent his kicking unit out in hopes of tying rival Bedford before the end of the first half. The ensuing snap was in position in time, but the kick by Abigail Ojemann sailed wide right. Then came a flag. Roughing the kicker was the call. Ojemann was shaken up on the play. With little time to react, Robishaud sent out his offense for the two-point conversion. Quarterback Austin Hoey found wide receiver Andrew Kielar in the end zone to give the Patriots the 8-7 lead. Failing to think points would be that hard to come by, Robishaud was just happy to have the lead at halftime. As it would come to pass, that extra point proved to be the deciding factor Friday night, as the Patriots took down the host Buccaneers by a score of 8-7. “We didn’t have a lot of time to think it through,” said Robichaud. “We went into a set that we like to use and the guys executed the play. It turned out to be huge. We didn't think it was going to be that big at the time.”
