Continuing my session reports of Techno Bowl Week 1, we've got a great game today in the form of Big Cats vs. Lumberjacks.
PRO MODE is used in this game, which means that 8 on 8 with no skills.
Big Cats win the toss and elect to receive.
First down sees the Cats hand off the ball to #39, a very strong, but slow player. The Lumberjacks were ready though, and hold him off for a 15 yard gain.
Second down doesn't go much better. In fact, it gets worse as the Big Cats QB is sacked for a 10 yard loss by #47.
Third and 75 for the Big Cats. They need a big play. Setting up in a spread formation, they are definitely showing pass. Warmer is pressured, rolls out of the pocket. He throws a pass downfield to #62. And the tackle misses! 62 turns a 25 yard reception into a 70 yard run before being brought down by Dakota at the five!
Fourth and five. Lumberjacks looking for the stop. #59 takes a handoff, runs around the ends, Touchdown Big Cats!!
Halftime score, 7-0 Big Cats
Lumberjacks need a score on this drive or they lose. #63 takes a handoff from Dakota. He is tackled by Fault, and the ball pops loose! Fault recovers it at the 20! But he fumbles it! But somehow Fault manages to recover his own fumble at the 20. Big Cats ball.
Warmer decides to run the ball (and the clock) on first and twenty. But he fumbles it at the line of scrimmage!! Forced loose by #36! This is the Lumberjacks big chance! But #46 of the Big Cats makes a recovery for a gain of zero.
Second down. Lumberjacks put two minutes on the clock leading to a total of four. Big Cats hand the ball off to #46 when Warmer looks like he might be sacked. They didn't expect much, but they were wrong. Touchdown, Big Cats!!!
Two minutes left on the clock for the Lumberjacks to put some points on the board to save face. Sadly it never happens, as Curtis Warmer himself sacks Dakota for five to end the game.
