OBU beats HSU

Originally uploaded by CameronMagee
The Battle of the Ravine was Thursday. Henderson State got beat by it's rival, Ouachita Baptist. I actually enjoyed the game from the stands, next to my parents. Usually I'm on the sidelines, next to my lens. This photo is actually from an OBU game I shot a few weeks ago. The Battle was hosted on Henderson soil, with the Tigers making the walk across the street. Henderson started strong, making the first half a significant lead with ease.

After halftime, OBU came out strong, with a great crowd backing them. The Tigers tied the game up, and then took the lead with minutes left.

With six seconds left in the game, Henderson snapped, and threw over 30 yards into the end zone. With time expired, and the ball in mid air, this was it. An HSU receiver jumped, with heavy coverage. The OBU defender's fingertips intercepted the ball, winning the game for the Baptists this year.

Great game. I hope we can redeem ourselves next year.
