Top 10 Games: No. 3

No. 3: Plymouth 27, Bow 24   

Plymouth trailed by four points with 4:02 to play in the Division II championship game when it took possession on its own 25-yard line. The Bobcats drove the 75 yards in nine plays, and scored what turned out to be the game-winning touchdown on a 15-yard pass from quarterback Brandon Roy to fullback Garrett Macomber with 16 seconds to play.

The TD, Macomber’s third of the game, capped a frenzied finish, as the teams scored three touchdowns in the final 9:36 of the final quarter. The lead changed hands on each of those three scores.

After Macomber gave Plymouth (10-2) a 20-17 lead on a 6-yard touchdown run, Bow answered with a 10-play, 65-yard scoring drive. Running back Jack Corriveau capped the drive on a 3-yard run that handed the Falcons a 24-20 lead with 4:02 to play.

Roy’s TD pass to Macomber was his second pass of the game. He was 2 for 2 for 26 yards and the TD.

Macomber ran for 178 yards on 31 carries. He finished the season with 2,373 yards rushing.

Corriveau scored all three Bow (9-3) touchdowns. In addition to his 3-yard TD run, he caught two touchdown passes. Corriveau finished the game with five receptions for 103 yards.  The Falcons also received a 31-yard field goal from Kimball.

Bow QB Matt Harkins completed 17 of 28 passes for 248 yards and two touchdowns.

It was the 24th state championship for Plymouth. Bow reached the Division II championship game in its first season after moving up from Division III.
