When a catch like this is made to end a game, it's as exciting as a walk-off hit on offense. 

Trinity Catholic High School (Ocala, Fla.) outfielder Sam Atwell made a clutch game-ending catch against Bishop Verot (Fort Myers, Fla.) in the semifinals of the Class 4A state playoffs. The catch itself was spectacular, but it looks even better considering the tying run was on second base.

Although the game was only seven innings long, it was played until the early hours of the morning, according to news-press.com's David Dorsey. Weather delays pushed the start time back to 11 p.m. ET on Wednesday night, and Atwell's game-ending catch happened at 1:14 a.m.

If Trinity Catholic was sleepy at the time, Atwell's catch certainly woke the team up.
