T-Birds get trumped late by Comets

October 27th, 2013 in News

A combination of unlucky ball spots and tricky play-calling from the Marionville Comets did in the North Callaway Thunderbirds in their regular season finale.

North Callaway came up short on fourth-and-inches three times and was outscored 22-6 in the second half of their 22-19 loss to Marionville on Friday night.

"(Marionville) has been averaging 40-plus points a game and we were able to hold them in check," Thunderbirds head coach Mike Emmons said. "We just gave up those key plays.

"I was proud of our effort on both sides of the ball. I was disappointed in the outcome, but not in the effort of our kids."
