    If you missed our show Saturday, you missed this play at the end of the half for Mishawaka.  With :08 to go, Caveman quarterback Darian Phillips hit Luke Shively who somehow shuffled it off to Tanner Bradley.  It went for a touchdown to end the half. Take a look at the pitch in slo mo.  It was so quick in real motion, it was tough to defend and of course the 6 points was a big momentum builder going into the locker room.
