“I don’t want any more close games”, said a member of the IMHOTEP coaching staff after this game to his players. They won but not by much and it was a last minute victory. The score was 30-26. From the time the clock started at noon, Roman Catholic was in charge of the first half of the game going into halftime.
In fact, IMHOTEP did not score at all during the second quarter. Roman Catholic Wide Receiver Jah Jah Boyd ran multiple yards for several touchdowns, including one in the 4th quarter. That was the only scoring that they did in the 5th. It looked like they were going to take the game.

IMHOTEP woke up during the last quarter and with about two minutes left in the game, scored a touchdown to pull ahead That was what they needed.. Roman then had the ball but they threw it right to an IMHOTEP player. That was it. Ballgame over. Roman players were shocked at what almost was. IMHOTEP was elated at how lucky they were.
