Falcons vs Force (not the NFL vs AFL, but the GFL)
Georgia Force 42 North Georgia 8
It is often said that the final score of a game is not indicative of the game that was played. In the Force-Falcons game this statement is applicable, but you could also say that the play of the special teams had much to do with the outcome of this game. The game was scoreless in the first quarter, then the Force capitalized on a long run by Justin Reinsmith on an option play that resulted in the first touchdown. Force 6-0. On the kickoff, the Force recovered a fumble and on the first play scored again to make it 12-0. Both teams were moving the ball, but turnovers contributed to drives being stopped. It was a very hard fought game. The Falcons scored on a 62 yard pass from Josh Veal to Trae Cagle midway thru the third quarter and were successful on the 2-pt attempt, making the score 12-8. The Falcons held the Force on the next series and the momentum had clearly shifted to the Falcons. However, a safety made the score 14-8 and then on the first play after the kick, Andrew Auton score for the Force on a long run. The score was now 20-8. The Force then kick the ball deep to the Falcons, who fumbled on the one yard line. The Force scored, then kickoff again to the Falcons. Once again for the third time, the kickoff was fumbled by the Falcons and the Force recovered. Several plays later the Force scored again. Near the end of the game, the Force blocked a punt attempt by the Falcons and recovered the ball in the end zone to score their final points. Four costly turnovers by the Falcons, 3 on kickoffs and then a blocked punt, led to easy touchdowns by the Force. Final score Force 42 Falcons 8 The Force remain unbeaten at 6-0.
