TERRACE CAPTURES FIFTH GSTPFL TITLE WITH 36-10 VICTORY OVER FINN HILL
NFC champion Finn Hill and AFC champion Terrace kicked off Super Bowl XXXV at 10:45 AM on Friday, February 10. Finn Hill won the coin toss and elected to defer, thus Terrace started the game on offense. After a nice 30-yard kickoff return by Brandon Tate, the Tsunami embarked on a ten play drive that culminated in the game’s first touchdown. An Everson Griffin sack ended the ensuing Honkie drive and after an exchange of punts, Finn Hill put together an eleven play drive that finally stalled at the Terrace eleven yard line. In what proved to be a harbinger of bad luck to come, Graham Gano shanked a 29-yard field goal.
The Tsunami ended their next drive with a 32-yard Josh Brown field goal and Terrace was up 10-0. Two long drives, one by each team, also ended with field goals, making the score 13-3 with ten seconds left in the half. Terrace elected to squib the ball and Lucky Whitehead scooped it up and ran 90 yards for a touchdown (no laughing, Steve Blackman). In the blink of an eye the score became 13-10 and the Honkies were charged up.
Finn hill received the second half kickoff, but the Tsunami defense stiffened and Finn Hill went three-and-out. A Terrace field goal was all the scoring in the third quarter, which closed with Terrace on the Finn Hill 30-yard line leading 16-10. A field goal on the second play of the fourth quarter widened the score to 19-10 and put the Honkies two scores down.
By the time the fourth quarter was underway Finn Hill had lost Jay Cutler, Anthony Barr and finally Emmanuel Sanders to injury. The injuries, coupled with the Terrace defense, proved too much to overcome. Terrace next drive resulted in a touchdown, followed by a 77-yard punt return that set up another touchdown. A Josh Norman interception led to a late field goal and Super Bowl XXXV was in the books as a 36-10 Tsunami win.
The MVP was listed as Demaryious Thomas, but in truth it was the entire Terrace offensive line, which paved the way for the Tsunami RB’s to garner 214 yards on 33 carries, a 6.5 YPC average.
· The Tsunami players unanimously voted a full playoff share to former team captain Steve Smith, Sr. Steve was the last Tsunami player left from the Bonney Lake franchise.
· Although he had no such luck in real life, Calvin Johnson now rides off into the GSTPFL sunset with a Super Bowl ring.
· Lastly, although Joe Flacco started the game, he was ineffective and was replaced by Brian Hoyer in the second quarter. This essentially means that all five Terrace (Roxbury) Super Bowl wins were by different quarterbacks (Steve DeBerg, Vinnie Testaverde, Brett Favre, Joe Flacco and Brian Hoyer).
EXTRA NOTE: Bill Taylor called a magnificent game and were it not for bad luck and the Tsunami offensive line, this game could easily have had a different outcome. Congratulations to Bill on another season ending in a Super Bowl and for building a team that should be back in the playoff hunt in 2017.
