Another win for the mighty Grizzlies!
Talk about a nail biter, this game was brutal down to the last second. Cheers to the Bayhawks for being a scrappy bunch of warriors who aren't afraid to stand their ground and fight for every inch in the footy trenches. It was a warm day back on June 25th but it quickly became a scorcher with two teams burning and turning their way to securing a win.
This was a game of redemption, a game of resilience and a game of recognition. Like the legendary pheonix rising from the ashes Seattle seems to be hitting their mid-season stride with back to back wins after years of rebuilding and recruiting. This ensemble of talented young players mixed with veteran wiles make for a dangerously effective unit on the playing field.
However, the Grizzlies would not have been able to squeeze out a one point victory had it not been for another incredible showing from their hometown crowd. In the closing moments of the game you could hear and sense everyone on the sideline gasping, cringing, cheering and willing their boys to victory...the 19th (if 18v18) man is real!
