Locals gather at bars to watch the Super Bowl

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - The Yuma community assembled at local bars to watch Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday, and were buzzing following a dramatic finish to the game.

Fans of both the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs were at Hooters to watch the big game, and there was an electric atmosphere all of Sunday evening as everyone got to watch an overtime thriller as the game really came down to the wire.

While fans of the 49ers were bummed about the Chiefs being crowned champions, one Chiefs fan, James Bennett, was enthusiastic about their win.

"It was a nail biter. A real helluva game. Nice close game. I like to have a close game. This one, I kind of wondered what was going to happen. But hey, they pulled it off one more time. 'Go, Chiefs, go.' And well, the 49ers played a fantastic game, too. Good game all the way around."

"I'm so disappointed that I'm sitting there and just was just feeling almost ill that we came so close. And yet we did not," said Bill Rima, a fan of the 49ers.

A lot of emotions ran high Sunday night, and the Chiefs won the Super Bowl 25 to 22 in overtime.
