Stat Line

Time of possession 31:08

This was a tough game as we lost 24-6, yet could have and should have won with ease.

So what can we tell about the game? Jags can produce yards on the ground no matter what the situation. Cloud goes down. Lee comes in and runs for 160+. This was the second time in the short season that a RB had come off the bench to surge for more than 100 yards. We weren't nearly as ready to replace an injured Matt Hasselbeck. Scott Mutryn struggled throwing 2 INTs that handed the Bearcats the game. More of a concern? Scoring points. They outplayed the Bearcats for long stretches, but couldn't come away with more than 6 points. Things turned when Hass went down and the Bearcats started returning Mutryn INTs.

After starting the season strong this began a series of games where BC really struggled to score.
