Two tough teams, the PYO Falcons and Bucs in the Major Division, went up against each other and produced a superb football game.
The first half generated one touchdown which supported this defensive battle. Anthony Barreira is the guy who fought his way 40 yards to pay dirt, breaking tackles all the way down field. That was the only highlight of the first half.
