REPLAY: Mother Nature Cuts Cotopaxi’s Comeback Bid Short

Yesterday was about as heartwrenching of a finish for the Cotopaxi Pirates as any author could come up with.

After a comeback bid which saw Cotopaxi come back from an 18-45 deficit in the 4th quarter to draw within 45-40 with 1:20 to go in the fourth quarter before lightning struck close by.

The Pirates defense had stopped North Park and forced them to a 4th and 9 from the 35 yard line, and still had two timeouts remaining at the time of the strike. Due to distance to travel and no lights at the Cotopaxi field, the game was called due to weather.

Check out how this game played out, but we really advise you to tune in to the final quarter of this one for a wild finish.
