Helmet Bowl update

Gallaudet’s football helmet advances to quarterfinal round of first-ever
Helmet Bowl National Championship

WASHINGTON – All fall semester fans of Gallaudet University athletics had
been asked on social media to go and vote for the Bison football helmet in
the first Helmet Bowl National Championship. Thanks to Gallaudet’s strong
national and international following the Bison helmet has now advanced to
the quarterfinal round of the bracket. The Bison are one win away from
reaching the semifinals of the national tournament to find the best helmet
in the country.

Gallaudet’s helmet won its conference (Eastern Collegiate Football
Conference) and was seeded fourth in the East Region. In the first round,
Gallaudet dispatched No. 13 seed Cheyney Wolves (65 percent to 35
percent). In the second round, Gallaudet took down No. 6 seed The Ohio
State University Buckeyes in a huge way 63 percent to 37 percent. The
Bison helmet went up against its toughest opponent, thus far, in No. 8
seed Colgate University Raiders. The week-long voting period, which closes
every Tuesday at 1 p.m. (EST), saw Gallaudet down early (61 percent to 30
percent) before GU came back to take a brief lead before the Raiders
regained the lead. In the final two hours, Gallaudet added over 200 votes
to win (51 percent to 49 percent). The Bison had garnered 2,040 votes to
1,926 for the Raiders.

This week (Dec. 19-Dec. 26) the Bison will face the United States Military
Academy West Point (a.k.a. Army) the No. 3 seed in the East Region.

Gallaudet is the last NCAA Division III program among the final eight
teams in the Helmet Bowl National Championship. To help the Bison advance
they have partnered with the last remaining NAIA program in the College of
Idaho Coyotes, the No. 8 seed in the West Region. The Coyotes are going up
against the San Diego State Aztecs the No. 3 seed in the West Region.

The two fanbases are encouraged to vote for each other each week. The only
way Gallaudet and College of Idaho would face each other would be in the
final.

Fans can vote daily from all of their devices here:

note:
Gallaudet is competing with College of Idaho against the mighty Army!

And speaking of Cheyney University that Gallaudet defeated in the
Helmet Bowl first round, this university announced last week they
were dropping football. Gallaudet defeated Cheyney 10-6, for the
only win in the Dirty Thirty season in 1970.

What a game at First Coast Christian. We played with only 7 players, our
starting player Lourdine couldn’t play, injured her ankle from day
before game. As the game processed, late 1st quarter our point guard
Olivia Brown sprained her ankle.
Fortunately, she was able to return to the game close to halftime. We held
high in first half then let it slide, 15 points behind entering 4th
quarter. We rallied but fell 7 points behind. Our girls gave their heart
and played really hard. The final
score was 36-43.

Marie Philip boys’ basketball

ast night game:  CCA 49 MPS 42 (Boys Varsity BBall)

We didn’t receive a sweet victory and gift from CCA. We simply gave away
our possible win. We got off with a good start and then fall apart at the
end of game. With foul troubling by our player and had to sat on the
bench. CCA came back with some nice scoring against us. We missed many
golden opportunity for an easy lay-up and jump shots in 4th quarter. That
was really cost to our game. We need to improve ourselves for next two
months.

Tonight game with Alumni at 630pm

Record 5-4; MBIL 2-2.
