Lakeland Playoff Trivia #2 - St Thomas Aquinas

Recommended Posts

With only about 40 seconds left, Lakeland scored the go-ahead TD against their opponent and all but had the game sealed.  But their opponent shocked the Naughts by marching down the field on 5 straight passing plays and tied the game in the closing seconds, sending the game into OT.  An unsportsmanlike penalty on the tying extra point cost the Naughts dearly and they ultimately lost the game.  The Naughts had come into this game having won over 25 straight games. 

Who was the team who beat them that memorable night?

That's it!  This game was played in Lakeland.  The Naughts had over 130 yards in penalties and fumbled the ball in OT, allowing the Raiders to kick a field goal and win 25-22.  This snapped a 27-game winning streak by the Naughts, who were the defending 5A champions.  The Raiders went on to win the 5A title that year.

And I'm guessing the crew that ref'ed that game hasn't been back to Bryant Stadium since then.  B)

    • Your right Hornetfan. #1 is Taevion Swint. He will be in 8th grade this year. Plays AAU for Osceola Panthers in Kissimmee. 
    • Wow so Suwannee only win in the past 15 years came when Columbia basically shot themselves in the foot    Definitely interesting and it could stand as Suwannee last win for a very long time, especially if they don't decide to play us in the future as Suwannee was the one who decided in the end to cut the series 
    • It wasn't the 2004 game.  Interestingly, Columbia was the team who did not score any offensive TD's in that game.  Their only score was a defensive fumble recovery for a TD.  In 2007, 4-4 Suwannee faced off against 7-2 Columbia for the Oaken Bucket at Suwannee.  In the first quarter, Suwannee's D stripped the ball and ran it back nearly 50 yards for a TD to go up 6-0.  The Bulldogs were completely shut down in the first half, totaling only 17 yards of offense.  Columbia took the lead 7-6 and held it into the fourth quarter.  Suwannee missed a fg and the game looked all but over with only about 4 minutes remaining.  But Suwannee's D stripped the ballcarrier again and ran it back for a 40-yard score.  Columbia had a chance to win it in the remaining few minutes, but self-destructed due to penalties.            
    • Well that makes it a lot easier   Since 1990 Columbia has only 4 losses against Suwannee   1995 (lost 21-0) this one is out because Columbia never led in the game    2001 lost 10-7 this one is possible   2004 lost 14-6 possible I suppose, interesting enough this was only game coached by Scott Anderson who was fired for a incident at practice the next week, he was replaced by Frank Beasley for the rest of the year before Danny Green returned for 3 more seasons at Columbia   And lastly 2007 14-7 loss      I'm gonna go with 2004 and I'll say probably a defensive TD and then fumbled on the kickoff to give up a second TD
    • So the answer is your gonna keep sitting here on your High horse and not putting a poll out there    Exactly what I thought
