    Thank you MC Escher for panel 3. It is unfortunate that the VT player’s upper and lower torso have become detached. Never like to see that, especially at the high school level.

    It’s not even a screen, it’s a backwards pass. It would have been a live ball even if it hit the ground.

    I guess they made the convert after all.Who is that making the tackle in P3, Reed Richards?

    This was a poor story-Gil Thorp doesn’t need 100# TE’s-a kicker ok-but a female TE-has Milford been a school of about 70 students? A reader from the VERY beginning.

    In all reality , And Milford can run out the clock but will they ? But wait there’s more ,Gil tells the team It’s not over until we say it’s over and Kaz adds Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor ? Pelwickie get in at QB we’re dropping the A Bomb on them !

    Doesn’t have to be, Gloveman. I live in a three-town regional school district, and the high school has no more than 350 students. If the football team has as many as 20 players (and we’re a rural district not wealthy enough to afford a JV team), we’re doing well. Some of those kids are deuced small.

    Yet Heather still can’t explain the offsides rule in soccer.

    Well at least Moose got to touch the ball.

    And somehow Milford got the extra point so when Moose, given his only chance at QB to take a knee says “Hell no!” and throws a bomb to Heather but it’s intercepted and run back to the Milford 20. VT’s field goal is good as time runs out and we go to OT. To be continued Monday.

    More likely, this story is over right now and we’ll never see or hear of Heather again as basketball practice starts Monday.Congratulations to Former State Champion Coach Gil on once again finishing 2nd in the Valley.

    You’re still bitter that Milford’s first ever soccer story turned out to be about football aren’t you? In fall in Milford, soccer players play football, cheerleaders play football, kids with selective mutism play football, kids with aspergers play football…everyone who enters this strip in the fall is guaranteed to have something to do with football, regardless of their having no previous football background whatsoever. (Except Shimura.)

    Screen Pass? I think not. More like a telegraphed swing pass, slow to develop and Moose with his improved footwork, rumbled in to save the day. Bitsy, how could you omit high vaulting smart aleck cheerleaders soaring over the line for touchdowns? Somewhere, Koy Nash is locked up in jail for assault as Shimura is pursuing his doctorate.

    Hooray Milford!

    P-1: Why does the QB have a mourning band around his forearm? P-2: The entire VT team appears to be suffering from dysentery from the way the receiver is running and the shadowing on his and the QB’s pants . P-3: Isn’t that one of those Japanese sculptures? I thought they were supposed to be cute animals like monkeys, cats, or tree sloths.

    Never realized that Earth had such a rapid Jovian rotation. In the space of seventeen seconds it went from daylight to starlight, a reverse Cole Porter.

    Pelwicki should have been able to take the interception from the 5 yard line in for the score. C’mon…

    In terms of scale, the players in panel three seem to have Chinese Dowager Empress size feet.. I suppose others would say that it is no small feat to intercept a screen pass. Check out Ed O’Bradovich in the 1963 NFL title game.
