The game is tied 0-0 late in the second half.
Fairmont Senior’s Fletcher DeVaul shoots and misses. The Bees’ Jesse Roman makes a soft touch-pass to Levi Perkins, but a Fairmont Senior defender breaks up the play.
Sweat is saturating both teams’ jerseys. The Polar Bears’ uniforms are looking stale white while East Fairmont’s are turning a darker shade of blue.
Anxiety is mounting and the clock is ticking — Tick. Tick. Tick.
Someone has to score — someone has to come up big — but no one can find a hole during the defensive struggle.
