Flag football was a great time right from the start with two really good games to open up the evening. We had a forfeit in one of the second games due to a pre-notified no show, but with plenty of footballers around, we were able to put together a good exhibition game. The third games of the evening were nail-biters with both coming down to the last touchdowns that happened in the last seconds of the game! One of those games earned the “Game of the Night” title! Read on to see what game went home with the belt! The 8:40 games were too close for comfort; one was so close, that it was a tie, but it was a great ending to another fun night of Austin Sports and Social Club flag football!
Game of the Night
Get Lit or Die Tryin’ versus Make Flag Football Great Again!
In the first half, both teams went TD for TD, keeping the score at a neck and neck race against the clock. Get Lit or Die Tryin’ was able to score on three drives, putting them ahead at the half, 19-16. The second half had the same back and forth play with no turn overs. With only two minutes left, Get Lit or Die Tryin’ scored and went for 3 points. Luck was on their side! Get Lit was able to catch a near uncatchable pass that put them ahead by 6 points with now under 2 minutes left in the game. Time was ticking…Make Flag Football Great Again needed a miracle, and a miracle they got! Make Flag Football Great Again made a huge play that put the ladies on the map, getting them 60 yards down the field and in scoring range with just one more play left! At this point, I would assume that Make Flag Football Great Again got Get Lit or Die Tryin’ a bit shook up! With the last play of the night, the same female who made the game-changing catch did it again! The miracles just keep on coming! The game is now tied 36 to 36! Not wanting to push their luck much further, Make Flag Football Great Again went for only one extra point and nailed it! Final score: 37-36, Make Flag Football Great Again!
Now, that is most definitely deserving of Game of the Night! Awesome job to both teams, and congrats to Make Flag Football Great Again!

Happy Hour at Gourdough’s
Every Sunday night after the games, the teams meet up at Gourdough’s to throw back a couple $2 Bud Lights and chase them with $3 Fireball shots. Maybe I’ve got that backwards… either way, happy hour is a blast! We got nuts for donuts and even nuttier for cheap booze!
Catch y’all next week!
