The 49ers are coming back from a big loss to the Chiefs in the championship.
“I had my hopes up, and felt like it was obvious that the 49rs would win by at least 20 or more points” said 4th grader Prana. Here is a blow by blow account of that first game:
The Cardinals are kicking off, and it is a touchback.The 49rs run and run till they make it close enough to take a field goal. The 49rs are going for a field goal and score, it is now 3-0. The 49rs kickoff and it is also a touchback. The 49rs are doing some good defensive plays. There is a flag for intentional grounding going to the cardinals, The 49rs have taken them to 3rd and 20. The Cardinals did not make the 1st down and now they are kicking. 49rs get the ball on the 25 yard line. Raheem Mostert catches the ball and runs a 76 yard touchdown! Touchdown 49rs! The 49rs get the extra point which now makes it 10 nil.
The 49rs seem like they have this in the bag! It’s the Cardinals ball with 9 minutes and 20 seconds left in the game. 3rd down with 8 yards to go. Incomplete, 4rth and 8, and they kick it. Taylor runs it to the 22. 49rs kick and it is blocked! Ezekiel Turner blocked it and recovered on the 10 yard line. Kyler Murray throws the ball to Chase Edmonds, runs around and touchdown! 7-10 49rs.49rs have passed the ball but it is incomplete, 4rth and 2. Kicked and caught by the Cardinals on the 22 yard line, and they continue forward yard by yard. 4rth and 9 and the Cardinals are now punting. 49rs get the ball on the 43 yard line. End of the first quarter, and the score is still 10-7 49rs. After a while, the 49rs are on the 1 yard line. They run it and do not make it into the touchdown zone. 49rs challenges the call, but it still stands. Cardinals get the ball and slowly make it to the 42 yard line, but since it is 4rth and 5, they try for a field goal, but miss. So the 49rs get the ball on the 42 yard line. 49rs kick the ball and the Cardinals get it. Cardinals make it and throw the ball to a player but the 49rs intercept it! The 49rs have the ball on the 25 yard line! 2 minute warning till half time. 49rs score a field goal and kick the ball. The Cardinals also score a field goal so the score is now 10-13, it is a tight game between the two. So far the ball has been going back and forth throughout the teams. 12 minutes left and the 49rs are winning by 3 points. Kyler Murray runs 22 yard into the touchdown zone and their team is now leading 17-13. Cardinals intercept their throw but there is a flag. Pass interference. 49rs kick, and the Cardinals make a field goal. 49rs have the ball, Garapolo passes it to Mcinnon and touchdown! The Cardinals have the ball now and Kyler passes it to DeAndre and he catches the ball and he makes it, 34 yard touchdown. 49rs have to score to win the game with only 5 minutes left. Garoppolo passed it to Taylor but he dropped it! Time! Final score is 24-20 cardinals. ”I felt quite sad, I just didn’t feel good because the 49rs seemed better. there were 2 missed field goals, and cardinals missed too many chances, The 49rs offence was not great.” Says Pranav. The Cardinals win the game.
