It’s important to play until you hear the whistle. A high school football team learned that lesson the hard way when a premature celebration led to a loss, according to Yahoo Sports.



The site reports the video above depicts the final play of what was eventually adjudged to be a Columbia River High victory against Vancouver Skyline High.

The Skyline Storm was nursing a 24-23 lead in the closing seconds of the game when Columbia River lined up for a last second, 32-yard field goal. The kick was blocked, sending Skyline players and fans streaming toward the sideline in a moment reminiscent of the famous scenes from Cal and Stanford’s “The Play.”
