Should Lakewood have punted?

24

November

 

It's a tough call. And it was a gutsy one by coach Cory Moore, as he decided to go for it. If he makes it, he's a genius who showed faith in his offensive line to get one lousy yard to clinch what would have been the biggest win in school history.

But the Spartans were stopped. And Robinson drove in for the winning touchdown.

(NOTE: To be fair, it should be noted I've read on Facebook that Lakewood was trying to get Robinson to jump offsides, and the Knights did but the flag wasn't thrown, and that the ball was never supposed to be snapped. For what it's worth.)

Me? I probably would have punted, since Robinson needed a touchdown to win. I'd rather take my chances and see the Knights have to go 70-80 yards against my highly-touted defense than just 40.

What about you?
