Escambia Academy’s Game Called After Kicker Knocks Out Power

October 31, 2009

Friday night was the night the lights went out on the 2009 football season for the Escambia Academy Cougars.

The Cougars were trailing Bessemer Academy 14-0 with 8:16 to go in the first quarter. On an extra point attempt, Bessemer’s kicker — a 255 pounder — sent his kick into a power transformer, plunging the stadium and some of the surrounding neighborhood into darkness.

The game was called and will not be rescheduled because of the mileage between Canoe and Bessemer.  With the 14-0 loss to Bessemer, the Cougars finished their regular season at 6-5.

    sounds like it might have been to EA’s advantage that the game was called – if Bessemer had already scored 2 TD’s in just a few minutes imagine what they would have done in a complete game!
