For Stan Dakosty and Marian, it was stunning
For Mark Rosenberger and Jim Thorpe, it was exhilarating.
Last Friday night in Hometown, the Colts raced to a 20-0 first quarter lead against their rivals.
While there were still three quarters left to played, history instead hinted at the fact that this game was over.
Amazingly, the Olympians rallied to cut the gap to six by halftime, tied the game early in the fourth quarter and then won it on a 26-yard field goal off the foot of James Denny.
After the contest, Coach Dakosty said, "To lose like this is tough."
