Norwell Defeats Bellmont

Norwell wins Homecoming, 23-22, on a blocked extra point kick in overtime. What a game.

From the Journal-Gazette:

The eulogy was being rehearsed; the gravesite being dug; the homecoming crowd at Norwell in a tizzy with a 16-point lead and Bellmont going nowhere but down. Someone say something nice about the dearly departed Braves.


What a comeback, even though it fell a point short in Norwell’s stirring 23-22 overtime victory Friday.

From the Journal-Gazette:

Before Friday, Bellmont was the only undefeated team in the NHC. The Braves rallied from a 16-0 deficit to tie the game at 16 and force overtime. Norwell scored in the first overtime attempt and kicked the extra point, and then Bellmont scored, but Goodmiller blocked the extra point attempt to secure the win for the Knights (3-1).

“I never blocked one before. Never blocked a punt before,” Goodmiller said. “I always try so hard in practice to get one, but I finally got one on the extra point there.”
