Christian Community School held its annual jamboree, ending with South Haven and CCS as usual.
The August weather brought the boys of fall to life and eager for Friday night lights.
South Haven ended the night with a 12-0 win against Sacred Heart, the reigning National Homeschool Football Association champs. Following that, South Haven faced off against hosting team CCS.
CCS hit the ground running. The scrimmage started out with seven offensive plays a piece, followed by seven minutes of game play.
CCS started out on offense and scored two plays in a row to lead 12-0. After their seven plays were up, South Haven's offense took the field. The Pats were scoreless in their seven plays. On the first offensive play from scrimmage, South Haven fumbled and David West from CCS picked it up to take it back, giving the Colts an 18-0 lead.
With just seconds left, South Haven's Xavier Vincent took it to the house for a touchdown, followed by the two-point conversion to end the game at 20-8 in CCS's favor.
"They bought into it," South Haven coach Jason Zimmerman said. "You never know how we're going to react when adversity hits. But, from that point on I feel like we actually outplayed them, so I was proud of how we responded."
The two will face off again in the season at CCS for the Colts' senior night on September 29.
"I'm proud of them," CCS Head Coach Jordan Flanders said. "We definitely have some things to look at, but overall our energy and effort was there, and I'm proud of that."
