teams (Ball Busters 58-8, Alpha Chi
Rho 27-18. Sigma Phi Epsilon 26-12

In the final, Crackheads scored
first on a 15-yard touchdown pass by
offensive leader and quarterback
Michael Ream. Team Shank was
not daunted and answered with a
long drive that ended with a 10-yard
touchdown run by Jared Wulfow.
Team Shank looked to be in control
when they stopped Crackheads in
four, got the ball back and put
together a second length-of-the
field, time consuming drive that put
them on the one yard line.
However, on the first play from
scrimmage, Crackheads Ben
Andrews intercepted a pass to kill
that scoring drive. Crackheads
promptly drove the length of the
field and definitely had their opportunities
to score. But each time they
threatened the goal-line,
Crackheads made a huge stop.
Defensive standout Andrews
picked off two more Team Shank
passes and Scott Tarka had another
interception. Tarka later showed
some dazzling offensive moves as
he took a pass from Ream on the
Team Shank 10 yard line, broke a
couple of "flag" tackles and
scampered into the endzone.
Crackheads later put one more
score across the goal line and, in
the end, ran away with a 33-6
victory to cap a stellar 10-0 season.
