    MahonEy's On-Side Kick

    What an incredible execution of touch and finesse. He guided that ball to the only spot where Reeves could have covered.

    Since kicking is all about power and explosive speed, Mahoney's kick was most impressive just for the soft 'pooch' touch. Like a golfer's touch on a difficult chip shot. Props to Grant!

    That play turned the game. Even though we fumbled on that drive, that play made the crowd believe.

    He's done that a few times in his career. I was really really impressed with the touch, and Reeve's ability to get up and get that.

    Re: MahonEy's On-Side Kick

    He may have had a lot of field goal woes in his career, but he has always had the onside dialed in. He's done it at least once a year I believe.

    That was perfectly executed. I bet they practiced that about 1000 times in the last two weeks!

    Re: MahonEy's On-Side Kick

    That really gave the team some more swagger. Huge play. When nobody puts pressure on him, Mahoney is clutch.

    Really? My friends and I all thought it was coming and not in that "oh we should really onside it here" kind of way. But perfect execution.

    Re: MahonEy's On-Side Kick

    You have to appreciate the fact that even though Mahoney lost out to Guyer on FG's that he is still a major contributor on kickoffs and an integral part of the TEAM.

    Props to Mahoney, I can't wait till next year when we don't have to worry about whether or not our kicker can make a kick or not. Bring on Netten!
