There wasn't much in the way of scoring early in this game, though that wasn't for a lack opportunities--both teams had chances to hit big pass plays in the first quarter. The offenses got going a bit in the second quarter, and the highlight of the game was probably Asa Watson's impressive catch and run, which really did not deserve to fall a yard short of the end zone. Here's the recap.
"I thought we were competitive," said head coach Tom O'Brien. "We didn't do as good of a job protecting the quarterback today as we did a week ago."
Mike Glennon completed 12-of-20 for 154 for the White team, while his counterpart Tyler Brosius went 15-of-27 for 184 for the Black team. Tony Creecy led all rushers with 16 rushes for 45 yards, while Bryan Underwood pulled in six catches for 109 yards.
Tony Creecy looked like the best running back on the field, Forrest West was all over the place in the first half, David Amerson had another acrobatic interception, and Earl Wolff iced the game with a pick-six in the fourth quarter.
In general it seemed like the defensive line won the battle up front on both teams. The running backs ran for a combined 122 yards on 42 carries (2.9 YPC), so take as much concern from that as you feel like.
