Touchdown in final seconds wins it

            Hoboken - No Fat Chix went up against TD’s in Your Face in a regular season matchup that was expected to be a great game. Both teams were undefeated going in, so one would be handed their first loss. The game started with TD’s in Your Face drawing first blood and scoring early. No Fat Chix, however, responded right away with a touchdown of their own. It felt like TD’s in Your Face were in the driver’s seat from there and throughout most of this game, while No Fat Chix were stuck trying to play catch-up. TD’s in Your Face killed it in the first half by playing some great defense, showing more energy, and quarterback Mike Mule had a highly efficient showing. He completed 9 of 16 passes with 3 of those going for touchdowns.  On the receiving end of his touchdown tosses were Jake Krantz, Mike Tufano, and Brett Baker. No Fat Chix’ defense wasn't bad, but they just could not get enough momentum going with the ball in their hands. Henry Vieluf had a rough night with 3 dropped passes, one of which costing them a touchdown. Quarterback, Ryan Sheridan only completed 4 of his 12 first half passes, but the good news was that they mustered together 13 points to trail by only 5 at the break.

            The second half was much more competitive and Kyle Hoffer of No Fat Chix really stepped up big for his team. He had multiple highlight reel catches on deep balls that gave his team a much needed energy boost. One of his catches was only inches away from the end zone that would have given them a lead. TD’s in Your Face were still in front the entire half though, working hard to maintain their 25-19 lead late.  However, the defensive certainly wasn't playing at the same level as it was in the first half. NFC's Sheridan completed a lot more passes and refused to give in. They worked the clock to their advantage and, being the veteran team, they made a play that left TD’s in Your Face's jaws on the ground. With just 18 seconds remaining, Ryan threw a deep pass to Hoffer who caught the ball in the in zone with a defender draped all over him, putting No Fat Chix up 25-24 in what would be the game deciding score. TD’s in Your Face certainly wasn’t expecting that TD in their face. No Fat Chix continue to hold on to their win streak and remain undefeated at 4-0.
