The Cavemen were victorious in a double overtime game versus the Falcons. After taking control the first half of the game 29-21, the Cavemen struggled a little bit down the stretch and allowed the Falcons to take a 4-point lead with 3 minutes remaining. The Cavemen fought hard and had some key stops and converted in the final minute to force overtime. In the first overtime, the Cavemen trailed for majority of the period until they were able to piece things together in the final minutes and tie the game with 30 seconds.
