White beats Blue in annual Spring Football scrimmage

   The White topped the Blue 21-16 in the annual spring football game on Saturday afternoon at Shuford Stadium and Kirkland Field.  Terrence King set up two White scores with receptions of 67 and 56 yards.
The White opened the scoring after capitalizing on a fumble which Jermaine Pointer helped cause and William Pender recovered at the Blue 30.  Jamelle Cuthbertson scored from nine-yards out to put the White up 7-0 with 8:40 left in the first quarter.

The Blue got on the board with 1:28 left in the opening quarter as Brad Roach and Trevan Davis teamed up for a 64-yard score to tie the game.  The score stood up until the second half as Charles Morman ended a late Blue threat with an interception in the end zone.

King set up the first score of the second half as he made a one-handed grab on a pass from Ben Snyder and turned it into a 67-yard play.  Antonio Hall capped the drive with an 11-yard run at the 12:15 mark of the third quarter.

The Blue cut the margin to 14-10 on a 21-yard field goal by Cory Darnell at the end of the third quarter, but the White used a reverse pass from Brent Johnson to King that covered 56 yards to lead to another score midway through the fourth quarter.

After the long pass, Cuthbertson ran in from seven-yards out for a 21-10 lead.  Roach would connect with Davis for 46 yards and later tossed an 11-yard strike to Antwan Strong to trim the Blue deficit to 21-16 with 53 seconds to go.  The two-point conversion failed and the White ran out the clock.

King had two receptions for 123 yards and threw a pass for another 10 yards.  Cuthbertson had 35 yards on four carries with two scores.  Snyder was 6-for-13 for 121 yards.  Roach completed 18 of 29 passes for 222 yards and two scores for the Blue.  Davis had seven catches for 144 yards.  Kory Fisher ran for 56 yards on eight carries.
