Ballard Knights vs Burien Wildcats

On Friday, the Burien Wildcats Bantam Football Team watched King5  News and saw that a major storm was coming to Seattle on Saturday that could pack wind gusts over 50 mph, bringing with it hundreds of thousands of power outages and danger from falling trees and branches.
That was the least of their worries though, as the Ballard Knights blew thru them with a 30 to nothing decisive win causing then to not make a spot in the coveted upcoming Bantam Football Playoffs.

Ballard vs. Interbay

This was the Knights first rain game and the Interbay Eagles came to play.  Knights took an early lead, and kept the game close all the way until the fourth quarter when the Eagles took flight and sealed the deal.  Mac limped off with a bad ankle and wrist, and pissed off because he had some friends in the stands that traveled to watch him play.  Funny that the field they played on is the field that is written up about with the homeless in Seattle camping out on public grounds.   This game was held on October 1, 2016.

Knights vs. Catholics

This game happened September 24th and man oh man did the Bantam Knights show up to play.  Total blowout over the Catholic where the Catholic blew out every other division of Knights: 89ers, Pee Wees, Juniors and Seniors.  Mac had a killer game as did the rest of the team.  Enjoy.

Humble in Victory, Gracious in Defeat.

This game happened on 9/17/2016 at Loyal Heights vs. the Edmunds White.  Knights led the White until the 3rd quarter where the White scored two in a row.  Mac (#9)  took the ball on a kick off to tie the game.  But it wasn't enough as the White were on a roll and scored one more in the 4th quarter.  With 2 minutes remaining the Knights needed something and on the 4th down, Mac chucked a hail Mary that the White intercepted and it was game over.   
This is one of my favorite games I've ever watched of my son play as he and the rest of the team executed the most important rule of sports, be humble in victory and gracious in defeat.

Knights vs. Timberwolves 9/10/16

Great game against the Timberwolves, even though the field was in east bumfuck, MillCreek to be exact. I had to show our passports twice to get into that town. Anyway, killer game. One of the Knights lineman, Cole, first play took out the Wolves quarterback and we think he broke his arm. Kids a beast. QB1 and QB2 both played in the game as this was a run away for the Knights.  Also, easy on the "nice filming" comments, for this game I got a new tripod and I'm obviously shooting from a distance, plus the DadCam factor is there, so some of the shots I'm watching thru my eyes and not on the camera screen.
