Anyone else see the play? Anyone know what the ruling is and if it was called correctly??
7-7 at the half

Quarterbacks were pretty even although I think Montplasir played a little better. Erickson hit the deep balls well but Montplasir killed Devils Lake on the ground, and it seemed whenever he needed to make a throw, he did. I was very impressed.
Runningbacks were also pretty even although I think if Shanley's D would have filled harder there would have been a lot less broken tackles. Ben Wolf didn't nessacarily look like the best player in a region to me, but he still played well.
Wide Receivers were pretty equal. Rodenbiker made some great plays but Mertens was burning Shanley deep.
As far as lines go, I think Shanley had a slight advantage. I was amazed that Devils Lake's coaching staff didn't change something on defense. For one drive Shanley ran the same option play 7 times in a row, just flipping sides. I think the 3-4 defense was the reason for this success. Shanley doubled the nose, got to the backers and just went to town on DL's ends.
And how about Shanley's kicker? I think he could have made that field goal from 48.
All in all, it was a great game played by two good teams and what a finish. Too bad Devils Lake got greedy and tried to win it quick by going for 2. I would have liked to see what happened if they had kicked the extra point and the game went on.

Jason berg from dl played a good game offence and defence. That one option killed devils lake. If you watched the replay of shanleys touchdown in overtime you could tell that they were two yards short.
