One overtime wasn’t enough to decide a winner between Coyle & Cassidy and Bristol-Plymouth Friday night.
Actually, five overtimes weren’t enough either. It took six extra sessions before Warriors running back Joshua Cobb sealed the victory with a 10-yard scoring run, giving the visitors a rain-soaked 38-32 victory.
“Both teams will be able to talk about this years from now,” said Warriors coach Thomas Pileski. “It’s a shame someone had to lose because both teams deserved a win.”
Coyle & Cassidy grabbed an 8-0 lead when Mark Schneider blocked a punt that went out of the end zone for a safety, and Cobb scored from 3 yards on the ensuing possession.
The Craftsmen (1-3) responded and took a 14-8 lead into intermission thanks to two 65-yard touchdown scampers by Elijah Jones.
In the third quarter, Cobb (41 carries, 233 yards, 5 TDs) evened matters with a 9-yard touchdown run, and a scoreless fourth period sent both clubs to overtime.
In the extra sessions, neither squad had any luck on 2-point conversion attempts, which are mandatory in overtime per MIAA rules. After a scoreless first overtime, each squad found the end zone in the second, third, and fourth overtimes, but all 2-point tries failed.
Coyle & Cassidy made a defensive stop in the sixth overtime and Cobb scored to end the nearly three-hour affair.
