BELLVILLE — The Cinderella season for CCS ended Saturday when the Lifegate Christian School Falcons of Seguin scored on the first play of the third quarter to kick in the 45 point mercy rule, the game ended 57-12, Falcons.
The game opened with a kick off that went out of bounds. The resulting penalty spotted the ball midfield on the 40 yard line. The Lion’s play was fumbled and the Falcons recovered.
On the Falcons first play, a short pass to Tyler Swisher resulted in the Falcons’ first touchdown. The good PAT kick put the score at 8-0, Falcons with 9:44 left in the first quarter.
The kick to the Lions was taken by R C Morris, deep. Morris did some broken field running and managed to evade a tough defense to cross the goal line. However, there was a flag on the play. An illegal block by a Lion resulted in the touchdown being negated. That would be the only time in the game a long broken field run would be made by a Lion.

Swisher managed to only run a short distance before he was buried by Lion Alex Parrish.
The Falcons ran six plays series nothing spectacular, gained yardage and on their seventh play a completed pass to Swisher resulted in a TD, a good PAT put the score at 14-0 with 4:57 left in the first quarter.
R C Morris recovered the short kick. There was a short loss on the first play. On the second play C J Morris was hit hard, his grip on the ball slacked and a Falcon player snatched the ball out of his arms and gained possession for the Falcons.
