Friday Night Lights in Catawba, North Carolina
It was one of the toughest played games in the PFL this season. The Carolina Crusaders took on the Hickory Hawks in a preview of the JV Championship game. Both teams battled strong on defense most of the game. Carolina jumped up early with a 6-0 lead but Hickory scored with 1:00 left on the clock in the 4th to go ahead 8-6. The Crusaders were pinned deep on their 8 yard line and proceeded to move the ball 92 yards in 5 plays with brilliant running by Darrell Darling and Alex Mills. With 4.0 seconds left on the clock Darrell Darling broke several tackles on an amazing 40+ yard run to score the game winning touchdown. The Hawks and the Crusaders will meet again Saturday October 25th at 7:00 pm for the PFL JV Championship game in Rock Hill, SC.
