Everest bests Downtown 26-14
Downtown Value and Everest Value are part of the same charter school family and both schools produced excellent flag football teams for the 2016 season. All season both schools play fast and sound fundamental football. Downtown Value finished the regular season with a 9 - 0 record while Everest Value finished the regular season with a 8 - 1 record. During the regular season, Downtown Value scored on the final play of the game to beat Everest Value. Now the two schools met again for the championship. Everest started off strong taking a 14 - 0 lead before Downtown put together a nice drive to close the first half with a score so it was 14 - 8 at halftime. Everest was stopped on their first drive of the second half and Downtown scored on their first drive so suddenly it was 14 all. With under 8 minutes to play, Everest went back on top 20-14. Downtown methodically drove down the field and faced a 4th and goal from the 10 yard line. Everest's defense rose to the challenge and stopped Downtown and ended up adding another touchdown in the final seconds to win 26 - 14. Congratulations to both teams and their coaches for a wonderful season.
