Semi Final Football Part 1 (many photos)
Posted By: paden501, 12-06-2008, 09:17 PM

Hey all,

I just got home from the PIAA semi-final game in State College PA where Bethel Park defeated Wilson High 38-35 in 3 overtime periods. What this means to me is that I'll be headed to Hershey PA for the PIAA Final game next weekend.

Here's a few shots:

Tamron 70-200 f2.8 Di LD @ 200mm f3.5 1/1600s ISO 200

Tamron 70-200 f2.8 Di LD @ 200mm f3.5 1/1000s ISO 200

Tamron 70-200 f2.8 Di LD @ 160mm f3.5 1/1250s ISO 400

Tamron 70-200 f2.8 Di LD @ 108mm f3.5 1/1000s ISO 200

Tamron 70-200 f2.8 Di LD @ 140mm f3.5 1/800s ISO 400

This last photo is the game winning field goal, booted after 3 overtime periods to seal the 3 point victory.

Pentax SMC F 35-70 f3.5-4.5 @ 55mm f5.6 1/125s ISO 400

Hope you all enjoy these as much as I enjoyed taking them. The weather was a balmy 29Deg F. though.... brrrr.....

Shots shots considering how difficult these kind of shots can be to take. JIMBO

Thanks guys. I've been talking to a few people w/in the organization and they're working on getting me a field pass for next week's game so hopefully there's a few more to come.

Great series and I am not sure you could do better with a field pass (I mean that in a nice way)

Here's another one for the series. I couldn't resist myself for this one because it was just too funny. My father-in-law (to be) loves to yell at the referees so this one is for him.
