Defense forces seven turnovers as No. 22 Lindsey Wilson Football beats Cumberlands 31-28, in front of hometown crowd of 1,782.
COLUMBIA, KY- Lindsey Wilson forced seven Cumberlands (Williamsburg, KY) turnovers en route to a 31-28 win over the visiting Patriots at Blue Raider Stadium, 928 Russell Road, Columbia, KY on Saturday, 04 Oct 2014.
No. 22-ranked Lindsey Wilson vaults to the top of the Mid-South Conference East Division standings with a 2-0 divisional record. The Blue Raiders improve to 4-2 overall this season with the win. Cumberlands falls to 1-4 and 0-3 in the East. The Blue Raider defense yielded just 14 points in the game.
Cumberlands scored the remainder of its points on a defensive scoop and score off a Lindsey Wilson fumble and a kickoff return for a touchdown to keep the game within reach. Lindsey Wilson offense struggled with its consistency today, especially in the first half.
Despite producing some big plays in the second half, the Blue Raiders finished the game converting just four of 17 third downs and none of their five fourth down tries. Lindsey Wilson also struggled in the red zone, scoring on two of five trips inside the Patriots' 20-yard line, including just one touchdown.
The Blue Raiders had entered the game 19-of-22 in the red zone this season - all touchdowns. Cumberlands' Arrico Ogletree snapped a scoreless first 13-plus minutes as he scooped up a fumble and returned it 30 yards for the 7-0 lead. Lindsey Wilson tied the game on a 5-play, 26-yard drive -- following a Cumberlands' fumble -- as quarterback Branden Cresap hit Emilio Gonzalez over the middle for an 11-yard touchdown.
Sandwich in between Lindsey Wilson's scoring drive was a pair of drives halted inside the Patriots' 10-yard line. With the missed opportunities, Lindsey Wilson entered the half tied at 7-7 with Cumberlands. Following three first-half turnovers, the Blue Raider offense started to find some rhythm in the second half. Cresap found Corey Davenport out of the backfield for a 72-yard touchdown midway through the third quarter to give the Blue Raiders a 14-7 lead.
Once again the Blue Raider defense aided the scoring drive by forcing its fifth turnover the day. Cresap and Davenport - who ran untouched, never breaking stride to the end zone - needed just one play to match their first-half production for the Blue Raiders' first lead of the day.
While Lindsey Wilson seemingly had momentum on its side, Cumberlands' Blake Ingleton took it away with a 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown on the ensuing kickoff. The Blue Raiders responded with 10 straight points. Caleb Keeton hit a 23-yard field goal - his second in as many tries this season - for a 17-14 lead.
The Blue Raider defense got into the scoring act on the next Cumberlands' drive as Corrion Cooper forced a fumble and Justin Wade recovered it in the end zone for a 24-14 lead. The two teams swapped five-play drives resulting in touchdowns to push the Lindsey Wilson lead to 31-21.
Austin Howell led the Blue Raider defense with nine tackles, including two for a loss. Elery and Eric Shaw each finished with interceptions. - Chris Wells, Lindsey Wilson College
