This week’s “Turning Point of the Game”:

If you read a textbook of common football clichés, not turning the ball over late in a half would probably pop up pretty early. With just a few minutes to go in the second quarter, Wall kicked off to Lacey after scoring a touchdown on their previous possession. With the Lions set to receive the ball to start the second half, cutting into the eight point deficit before halftime was definitely a priority. On a 1st and 10 from his own 35, Lacey QB Noah Brunatti tried to complete a short pass close to the line of scrimmage. However, junior defensive lineman Grant Puharic managed to get a hand on the ball and tipped it into the waiting hands of sophomore LB Charlie Sasso who managed to come down with a big interception. Wall would capitalize on the turnover and take a 21-6 lead just a few plays later. For their efforts, Sasso and Puharic will each receive a gift card from Turning Point breakfast, brunch, and lunch.

Be sure and look every week for “The Turning Point of the Game.
