Week 10:

Geneva Bible at Arkansas State

Coach always told us not to watch the Sports Center, but somebody did. And they shared an interview that interested the whole team. We didn't tell Coach about it, but we found out Arkansas State told everyone we'd be a win on their record, even if they never got a win anywhere else. We were the "easy" team...

Think again.

Going out in the first quarter, we forgot to play football. We were so focused on trying to hit and hurt everyone, that our offense struggled. Theirs didn't. They scored a touchdown to finish the first quarter and kicked a field goal in the 2nd, taking an early 10-0 lead. With 0:17 seconds left in the half, QB Larry Stevens found WR Russell Sears in the end zone to get a touchdown and shorten the lead to 3 at the end of the half.

During halftime, Coach knew something was up. He didn't question it, but he said whatever it was we needed to snap out of it and play football. This wasn't cutting it, and this wasn't going to get us a win. At the start of the 3rd quarter, RB Neil Ingram ran for a 2 yard TD, and a 33 yard TD back to back. Arkansas kicked a field goal to end the 3rd quarter, but the lead was 21-13. In the 4th quarter, Arkansas State scored their last touchdown bringing it to 21-19 and had one shot to bring in 2 points instead of 1, but our defense was able to stop them. We ran out the clock, and ended the game.

QB L. Stevens went 15 for 28 with 162 yards, 1 touchdown, 1 Interception, and 1 sack.

RB N. Ingram ran 29 times for 124 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also fumbled the ball, again..

FB C. Lopez was in the game for the first time in a few weeks, and he was targeted one time for 4 yards, but fumbled on his play. WR R. Sears also fumbled the ball.

Our Defense however, had 1 interception, 2 forced fumbles and a total of 6 sacks.

C Darryl Martinez is struggling with an injury to his Clavicle, docs say it's a fracture. He could be out a few weeks. Everyone else is pretty healthy besides that. SS Edward Reese is excited to play now that his ankle is all healed up.

Week 11:

Geneva Bible (26) at Navy (45)

This game was something else. In fact, it's the day after and we still aren't entirely sure what happened. Two field goals in the first quarter by Crooks put us up 6-0, then three back to back touchdowns in the 2nd quarter shocked our defense and with a field goal to end the quarter, we were still behind 21-9.

At halftime, Coach told us to shake it off and come out playing hard during the second half. We did exactly that and triumphantly made our way down the field, only to get an interception on the 6 yard line. What followed looked more like a nightmare, two touchdowns, a field goal... and all for Navy. By the time the 4th quarter started, only Crooks had points on the board for us and we were down 38-9. Crooks again showed his magic nailing a field goal to shorten the lead (however, not by much) 38-12. RB Neil Ingram broke free during a 45 yard run for a TD bring it 38-19. It looked like we might have made a comeback, but Navy shut that down really quick with a TD of their own. We scored the final touchdown with 0:17 seconds left in the 4th on a hail mary pass from Stevens to Dunn 74 yards, bringing the final score 45 to our measly 26.

QB L. Stevens tried to step it up this game, and went 24 for 35 with 349 yards, 1 touchdown, 1 Interception, and 5 sacks. This is the most yards he's thrown for the entire season.

RB N. Ingram ran 27 times for 83 yards and 1 touchdown. While he didn't fumble the ball (that was Dunn's doing again) the running game was stopped big time during this game.

FB C. Lopez was given his first running play since his injury but only captured 2 yards with it.

Our Defense didn't really show up much. We had 1 interception, 1 forced fumble and 1 sack. Which seems like they played much better than they actually did. Let's be real, they gave up a total of 6 touchdowns, and 523 yards. Hopefully that'll be the worst they do all year. We looked like the same Geneva that played USF in Week 2.

C Darryl Martinez is still struggling with that fracture to his Clavicle. Now that SS Reese is healthy, it looks like it's SS Hernandez's turn to get injured with a pulled hamstring. Our Strong Safety slot just seems dangerous, if this keeps up we'll have to work on that.
