The game started off well enough. We went up an early lead of 3-1 with people playing their unusual positions. In one particular instance, I motioned for one of my teammates to chuck it deep. I was playing long, so it was my job to catch it. Unfortunately, he threw it a touch too far. I sprinted with all my might and as the disc is descending I thought about diving for it. I didn't though, and just reached out and caught it. It was a beautiful catch. It inspired our team. Unfortunately, the person I threw it to for the score missed it.
Several points later, with the score 5-5, I again sprinted down the field for a beautiful catch. As I was catching it, I looked to the sideline to see where the goal was. I caught it and saw a cone. I immediately put my foot down, so as to not go out the back of the end zone. As it turns out, that was the front of the end zone, and I didn't even get my foot down in time, so I was, in fact, in the end zone. Go me.
Half time came about 8pm, much later than usual. We were leading 8-6, and were pretty comfortable with our lead. The 2nd half started with both teams scoring a few points and we eventually got to a score of 11-9.
Wanting to close out the game as quickly as possible, I chucked the disc to the back corner of the end zone. At first I thought it was going out, because the defender stopped. Well, as it turns out, it was a perfect throw from 30 yards out. My teammate was the only one who could catch it there, if he didn't, it wasn't going to be caught, or knocked down. I went off the field at this point, looked at my caption, who frowns upon the deep throws and said, "I'm sorry, I know you don't like when I do that." He looked at me, smiles and said, "No, that's quite all right." I laughed.
The next few points didn't go our way, as the darkness crept in. We were going to call the game at 14, with us leading 12-9. Not a big deal. Well, they scored 3 quick points to our 0. With the scored being 12-12 we were going to call the game on the next point. We were on offense and almost immediately turned the disc over. 3 throws later, they turned it over. We got the disc back, marched down the field in the darkness and managed to score. We won, 13-12, in a very ugly (on our part) game. I won't tell you about all the bad plays I made.
