Final, official results

“BOISE” PLAY TAKES DOWN PATS;

LUCKY MINUS 13 TAKES POWER POINTS

The only thing missing was the Stanford band.

That crazy, desperation, miracle finish pulled off by the Miami Dolphins over New England Sunday easily became the year’s most amazing finish.  Using one pass and two laterals — a play dubbed “Boise” because it was taken from the Boise State playbook — the Dolphins went 69 yards in seven seconds to nip the Patriots 34-33.

The finish was reminiscent of the Nov. 20, 1982 game in which California, using five laterals on the last play of the game, edged past
Stanford to win.  But the Stanford band thought the game was over and had marched onto the field, much to the chagrin of the tuba player who was steamrolled by the ball carrier.

Sunday’s finish undoubtedly will take its place in the top three amazing finishes in NFL history — along with the Immaculate Reception and he Holy Roller.

Week 14 of the POWER POINTS Football Contest saw one performance nearly as improbable as those.  In a week of gargantuan upsets, contestant Steve Wagner, of Lewistown, PA, missed only 13 of the 136 points to post a grand-prize-winning total of 123 points.  He entered the contest through the Lewistown Sentinel newspaper..
