Wayne State-TU updates
September 26, 2009 - Zach Baker
Wayne State leads, 7-0, on a Mickey Mohner to Troy Burrell TD pass.
TU follows with a drive into Wayne State territory, but Nate Scully is intercepted, which leads to another Wayne State score -- a 5-yard run by Joique Bell.
Tiffin is driving again. Scully has a ton of talent. He can run and has a strong arm. But he's been prone to picks, which is to be expected from a true freshman. (3:16)
TU eventually punts, but Moses Kato pressures Mohner into an intentional grounding, then makes a big hit on a run. Kato, a transfer from a college in California, looks like a beast. Rahsan Wilson gets a hand on a WSU punt, allowing TU to take over at the Warrior 45.
End of first quarter
Wayne State 14, Tiffin 0
Brett Koepp puts the Dragons on the board with a 23-yard TD. Great run, as he took it right and went almost untouched. The snap on the extra point is bobbled, but holder David Singleton doesn't hesitate, and takes off left for the end zone, just making it in. 14-8. (13:42).
-Joique Bell, the all-time GLIAC rusher, takes over on the ensuing drive. First, he converts a fourth-and-one from the 2. Then, he dives into the end zone from the 1.
Wayne State 21, Tiffin 8 (8:56).
TU drives to the 10, but a pass by Scully is almost picked, then he's sacked.
Boris Bede is out to attempt what would be a 34-yard field goal.
Kick is blocked. Stan Thornton (who already has an interception) runs it back for a touchdown. Kick by Anthony Morasso is good. 28-8 (2:13)
Dragons have played really well at times, but they're still down by 20 points. They just can't make mistakes.
28-8 Wayne State at the half
Morasso adds a field goal to make it 31-8. A Trey Williams fumble led to the score. (9:31)
Burrell scores his second touchdown of the game, this one a 65-yarder. TU's defensive back gambled and tried to intercept the ball, but he missed, and Burrell went in untouched.
Wayne State 38, Tiffin 8. (1:58)
End of third quarter
Dragons driving again, but a fumble gives the ball back to the Warriors. The Warriors give up yards, but they get tough deep in their own territory (12:23)
