During the first quarter the Highland Scots weren’t doing too good, the Central Minutemen were up 7 and the Scots were at 0 points. A lot of the students had hoped that the Scots would soon catch up and win the musket this year, and the Highland student section never failed to cheer on the football team and keep things lively and exciting to keep up the hope that we would catch up to the Minutemen.
When the second quarter started, the Scots were still down points and some of the students were losing hope in our team and hoping that the Scots would be able to bounce back and keep our musket.
Halftime came along and students were talking about how they did not know if the football team will be able to keep up with the Minutemen, but the student section didn’t give up on cheering for our team to give them the extra motivation to keep going and win the game.
After halftime, and at the start of 3rd quarter, the Scots were bouncing back and starting to score points, and eventually they started to catch up to the Minutemen.
Halfway through the 3rd quarter, the Scots and the Minutemen were close putting 14-7 on the board.
As the student section was cheering the team on, the Scots were doing better and better as the clock was ticking during the fourth quarter. At this point, we were now 17-14 giving us a leg up and giving our students more excitement, and a heavy rush of thrill and adrenaline, hoping that we could keep our score and win this big game.
At the end of the game, when the winning point was scored, the student section was proud with joy and excitement for this is the 4th year in a row that the Highland Scots won the musket game!
