In the opening minutes of St. Edward’s (Lakewood, Ohio) vs. Good Counsel (Olney, Maryland) football game, it was clear that the offensive players still had some early issues to work through.
The pace was set for an inefficient offensive performance in the first half when some of the craziest throws and ball fights ensued, causing teams to race back 40 yards while battling for control to the goal line and beyond.
In the end, the St Edwards defense managed to catch the ball, although several Good Counsel players got their hands on the ball in the end zone.
