The Generals won 24-18 in OT over the Rampage in a well-played, and exciting football game last night in Lynn. The Generals tied the game 18-18 with 24 seconds left in regulation on a Kelvin Amparo to Jesse Pearce TD pass. The crucial 2 point conversion pass to Pearce was good to tie the game.
In OT, Alex Watler had a huge interception to get the Generals the ball back deep in Generals territory. After the Generals moved the ball to the Rampage 40 yard line, on 3rd down and long, Amparo scrambled out of the pocket and hit Dimitris Denis with a game-winning Hail Mary TD pass! (See photo of game-winning catch.)
On the night, Amparo had 3 TD passes. Pearce had 2 TD catches and the 2-point conversion reception. Genrals kicker Klenis Haxhiaj celebrated his 28th birthday going 3 for 3 on extra point kicks, while adding a FG. Both the offense and defense played well throughout the game.
The Generals (2-2) travel to RI next Saturday night, August 12, to take on the undefeated RI Wardogs (4-0). The Generals next home game will be on Saturday, August 19, at 7:00 pm at Manning Field in lynn.
