Football: LWC defeats Georgetown 23-17 on Senior Day
The Lindsey Wilson football team defeated No. 16 Georgetown (KY) 23-17 on Saturday afternoon at Parnell Family Stadium during their regular-season finale.
Lindsey Wilson and Georgetown were tied at 17-17 with just over a minute to play. Georgetown had possession as Gehrig Slunaker dropped back in the pocket, winding up to throw but the ball slipped free from his hands. Brandon Fields rushed in for a scoop-and-score, giving Lindsey Wilson a 23-17 lead.
On Georgetown's final possession, Darius Holden iced the game with an interception. The defensive play let the Blue Raiders kneel it out to capture the win.
Both teams struggled offensively in the first half as Lindsey Wilson managed just a field goal in the first quarter, and Georgetown responded with a field goal of their own in the second quarter, tying the game at 3-3.
The Blue Raiders opening drive of the game came to an end after a failed fourth-down conversion, but the Lindsey Wilson defense provided a big opportunity after Fields produced a strip-sack recovered deep into the Tiger red zone. Ian Sauter capped off the drive with a 21-yard field goal, giving the Blue Raiders an early 3-0 lead.
After a flurry of punts back and forth, Georgetown answered back late in the second quarter after leading a 12-play 5:16 minute dive polished off by a Gabe Floyd field goal from 31 yards, leveling the score going into the half.
Coming out of halftime the Tigers looked to get a score but the field goal attempt flew wide right. On the ensuing Blue Raider drive, Ethan Cash led the offensive charge to the tune of 11 plays and 80 yards, connecting with Manny Scott for the 14-yard catch and run. The touchdown pushed the Blue Raiders into the lead at 10-3 with 5:19 to play in the third.
Lindsey Wilson forced a turnover on downs late in the third quarter, then Cash found Scott on crossing route over the middle, taking it 41-yards. He shook off would-be tacklers taking the ball all the way to the endzone, increasing Blue Raider lead to two scores.
Georgetown answered back with a passing touchdown of their own. Slunaker led the offense down the field, connecting with Jeremy Adams for the three yard reception, putting the score at 17-10.
Following a Lindsey Wilson punt, the Tigers went on a 14-play 65 yard drive with another Slunaker touchdown pass to Dillon Warren. This one went for 24-yards setting the score at 17-17 in the fourth quarter.
Cash finished the contest 12-for-22 with 190 passing yards and two touchdowns. Both of those scores went to Scott who totaled 125 yards on six catches and two touchdowns.
Luke Bowman racked up 12 tackles adding on a sack to his effort. Fields produced 2.5 sacks while forcing two fumbles and one touchdown. Ronald Carr stepped up and tallied eight tackles, helping set the tone on defense.
The Lindsey Wilson football team waits to see if they earn an at-large bid during the NAIA Selection Show on Nov. 13 at 6pmCT.
