Well, the important thing is that they won the game 24-0.

Unfortunately for the Wallkill Mighty Mites, that's not the moment captured on video. No, it's them trying their hardest to crash through a banner and finding it just a little tougher than they might have expected.

The video's creator, James Cracolici, gives a little context in the comments about what went wrong. "A few people asked about the banner. Yes, it's vinyl, but it is actually two pieces held together by Velcro," he wrote. "What you can't see is the sign is backwards with the writing facing us on the field. Guess it's not made to break that way."

Apparently not, but then we wouldn't have this slow-mo moment of awesomeness. Fun tip: Try watching it with the theme from Chariots of Fire playing.
