Fake Punt / Key Play -- Collinsville started the 4th quarter with this fake on 4th & 1 from their own 19 yard line. The Cards had a 14-7 lead and gambled with a direct snap to an up back who picked up a first down. Most of the 4th quarter was played in Cards territory.

Kevin Phillips (#11) caught this 17 yard Lane Coulter pass on 4th down with 4:48 left in the 1st quarter for Collinsville's 1st score on their 2nd possession.
Kevin Phillips (#11) made a 1-handed interception of this Catoosa pass after it was tipped by Dalton Rasmussen (#85). Kevin returned the ball 45 yards for Collinsville's second touchdown with 5:17 left in the 3rd quarter. This broke a 7-7 tie (after a Catoosa 50 yard TD run at 8:04 in the 2nd quarter).
Michael Pitts crowned Homecoming Queen Mollie Colpitt in the pre-game coronation ceremony. Rain stopped before the ceremony and held off until after the game completed.

The Cards failed to pick up a first down and turned the ball back to Catoosa on downs. Catoosa had already fumbled the initial Cardinal punt with Merin Oakley recovering to set up the Cards at Catoosa's 47 for the first scoring drive.
I couldn't tell who rushed the ball in real-time but guessing from the photo it was either Kyle Rush (32) or Dalton Rasmussen (85)? -- Ted

I'm not quite sure what the message was from several of the rabid Collinsville fans ... but I guess it worked? -- Ted
