In the world of precious gemstones, whatever you read about garnets tends to have positive connotations. Such wasn’t exactly the case, however, for C.B. South Football last Friday evening. In fact, the mere mention of “garnets” to anyone in the C.B. South football organization will likely bring back tough memories of an evening that could very well have had a completely different finish were it not for the errant toss of an official’s flag during the game’s final seconds at Garnet Valley High School. Although that’s not how the evening should be remembered, that’s quite possibly how it will be remembered — at least for Titans fans.
Indeed, with less than one minute remaining on the clock, the Titans appeared to have successfully halted a Garnet Valley offensive drive into C.B. South territory. Or so it seemed. But amidst spontaneous Titan celebrations for the turn-over-on-downs, an official’s flag was tossed well after play had ended — charging a face mask penalty against C.B. South. The penalty gave Garnet Valley an extended possession in which the Jaguars eventually scored the game-winning touchdown on a pass play deep into the end-zone with 0:16 on the clock — a repeat of a failed pass-attempt just seconds earlier. An extra-point kick sealed the final score at 52-48 in favor of Garnet Valley. And in a matter of seconds , emotions on the Titans side of the field sank from unbridled enthusiasm to stunning disbelief.[caption id="attachment_4075" align="aligncenter" width="600" caption="After scoring 6 TD's during the evening, Central Bucks South running back Dan Brown glances up at the scoreboard clock as the Titans defensive unit attempts to thwart a Garnet Valley scoring drive in the game's final minute of play."][/caption]
Our multi-media HD WebShow this week features LOTS of Titan highlights from a power-packed evening of football by both teams. So turn up the volume — ever so carefully (as the audio track opens with a powerful drum solo) — and enjoy!!!
