UPDATE: The following play was reported to us as a blocked field goal since our reporting software which Cheshire Academy used to report the boxscore to us, doesn’t consider 2-point conversions for the other team.
The NEPSAC does not play under Federation rules, but uses the NCAA’s rules allowing for opponent scores off conversions. Apparently, Suffield had scored a touchdown in the second quarter making this an extra point, and it wasn’t a touchdown but a 2-point conversion.
This is easily the craziest play of the 2016 football season in Connecticut.
Suffield Academy trailed Cheshire Academy 21-7 in the second quarter of Saturday’s game in Cheshire when it lined up for
a 20-yard field goal an extra point following a touchdown.
The attempt was blocked by Dillon Harris (45) and the ball rolled back into a scrum at the 25-yard line. “Ok, still a huge-ass play,” a voice, presumably one of the coaches atop the field box, says.
He had no idea how huge it would be.
Cody Tippet (23) tried to get the loose ballin the scrum until Zach Verdi (56) emerged and rumbled about 10 more yards before he — somehow — lost the ball, as well.
It bounded for another 10 yards and then to the 47, where four-star recruit Tarik Black finally got a handle on it.
He raced the rest of the way for the touchdown amid bedlam on the Cheshire Academy sideline.
Cheshire Academy went on to beat Suffield, 44-21.
