|Apparently we can't afford long pants for all cheerleaders.|
The band is ready
Yes! Flawless entrance! Ooo, Sir Paladin looks impressed!
|Didn't get thrown today. Boo yah!|
Furman gets the ball first. We've done well on first drives at home. But today the offense stalls out. a condition which persists for the entire first quarter and most of the second, while Wofford is able to scratch out two long touchdown drives. A 14-0 deficit is no way to kick off a playoff run.
Sir Paladin's trusty mount, Fury, is getting anxious.
Wait! What's this? Fumbllleee! Throw it up top! TOUCHDOWNNNNN!!!!
A stop. A drive. A field goal. And Furman trims the margin to 14-10 at halftime.
In the second half, the Paladins add to the momentum. A first drive stop is followed by a touchdown drive, and Furman takes the lead.
Still the Terriers are not the kind to fold their tents. They drive into Furman territory and attempt a fake punt only to be turned back on an interception. Furman converts the turnover into 7 points.
Again Wofford drives, threatening the endzone; only to be intercepted there as well. again the Paladins convert a turnover into points. A field goal makes the score 27-14 in favor of the Paladins.
Wofford takes the ball with 6:41 on the clock and drive to the Furman 7. There they face a fourth and two, and gain only one yard! The Paladins take over with just over 2 minutes left. And facing 3rd and 3, they do this...
In case, you can't tell, that is a 25 yard run! And down 13 point with under two minutes left, Wofford coach Mike Ayers shows he's a class act and leaves his last time out in his pocket.
So I hope you can understand how special this moment is:
