     With a playoff berth on the line, the Battling Bulls beat Chichester 24-16 in double overtime on Friday, October 27th. The Bulls earned a trip to the District I 5A playoffs and will face Unionville after the dramatic win against the Eagles.
Tied at 8 after four quarters, Chichester got the ball first and scored a touchdown and the two point conversion, forcing the Bulls to do the same. Not to be outdone, running back Quadir Gibson got into the end zone on a ten yard run and caught the critical two point conversion on a pass from Tarik Bey to tie the score at 16.
      In the second overtime, Glen Mills took the lead as Bey scampered in from ten yards out before Gibson ran in the conversion, putting the Bulls up 24-16. The defense then took over and stuffed the Eagles, clinching the victory.
