How I saw it watching the game with the Clearwater Bucs Bunch
This was a clumsy game between two bad teams but Iggy came good from 52 yards out to win it with ten seconds left. And for all the people watching at the Clearwater Bucs Bunch meeting, including myself, it was a memorable win. "You could have sunk a battleship with the excitement when we won" said Bill Thompson afterwards.

"It felt pretty good when I hit it" Igwebuike said about his third game-winner of the season. "I don't look to see how far it is - I never worry about the distance."
