Last Saturday night, HR Bio Protect Field at the Allen Event Center was the setting for arguably the most exciting finish in Revolution history, between the Texas Revolution and Dodge City Law. A back and forth affair throughout the whole game saw the Revs 2 score lead vanish in the final minutes as the Law scored to take the lead. The second game between the Law and Revolution this season once again featured next to no defense (the Law won the previous game 89-71), but had special teams drama throughout. However, in last weekends contest, the Revolution sealed the victory, thanks to the late game heroics of Wide Receiver?Brett Reece. Reece caught the game-winning touchdown, with less than a minute remaining in regulation.
After the Law regained possession of the ball, they were able to drive it down to the 25 yard line, setting up a game-winning field goal with 4 seconds remaining. Dodge City kicker Jared Wood lined up for a 42 yard field goal, but the snap was high, leading to a fumble that was returned by the Revolution, ending the game 72-64. Although Reece’s game-winning touchdown provided excitement, he was not the only player on the field whose play helped lead the Revolution to a victory and a playoff berth. Wide Receiver, Clinton Solomon had six receptions for 117 yards and two touchdowns. Quarterback, Robert Kent, Jr. completed 22 of his 36 attempts, for 256 yards and six touchdowns, continuing his torrid attack on the CIF record books. For the season Kent now stands at 2,216 yards (2nd highest in league history) and 55 touchdowns (most in league history) Former Arkansas Razorback and NFL kick returner, Joe Adams ended the first quarter in style, showcasing his speed with a 52-yard kickoff return touchdown. The Revolution defense caused two key turnovers.
The Revs have clinched a playoff spot for the 2nd straight year, and hold a 2 game lead over the Law for first place in the Southern Division, and a potential first round bye in the Champions Bowl playoffs. The Revolution are on a bye this week before returning to HR Bio Protect Field next Friday May 20th for the regular season finale against the Mesquite Marshals.
