The Saturday game had it all, great weather and the competition between Poly and City was one for the record books. Each team came out very strong on defense holding their opponents scoreless for the first several possessions of the game. Baltimore City struck first and immediately went for 2 because every point counts in this game. City’s defense continued their lockdown in the first half shutting out Poly going into halftime. City was led by their QB and eventual MVP Mike Bond Jr. in the second half also, he had a few very big runs out of the pocket and ran one in from about 30 yards out to go up even more against the Engineers. Going for two again after their second TD, City went up 16-0. Poly wasn’t out quite yet though as they were led by their QB/RB duo that connected on several occasions. Poly eventually found their way back with a couple of late second half scores to tie the game at 16 all. The stage was set for overtime and it took two OT’s to determine the winner
