Yesterday MU played it's 1st football game of the season. It was a night game which I always love. The combination of anticipation, music, and lights create a feeling of excitement that only comes around once a year.
As Malone continues to transition into Division II they are playing new teams and encountering new challenges. Should make for an interesting season and the 1st game did not disappoint.
Malone won in a nail-biting, double overtime contest against the Tiffin Dragons. The score was back and forth all game. The game ended with a 27-27 score. In the 1st overtime both teams scored a touchdown. In the 2nd overtime the defense got an interception and the offense scored a touchdown on their ensuing series. The final score was 40-34.
Quite an exciting game for the team!

These are a few pictures I captured before the game and then at the very end of the game when I finally pulled my camera out.
