ACU Drive No. 1
Angelo State kickoff is fielded in the end zone for a touchback. Ball on the 20, with Wildcats headed north. RB Daryl Richardson carries up the middle to the 24 on first down. Richardson around left end finds plenty of room, and finds first down yardage at the 32.Gale throws a swing pass to Richardson in the left flat, and he carries for another first down at the 47. Gale passes over the middle to FB Justin Andrews, who tips the pass, and acrobatically catches it while hitting the ground at the Ram's 26. Richardson runs up the middle for another first down at the ASU 10. Richardson plows off right tackle for a gain of 5 to the Ram 5, where it is second down. Richardson runs off right tackle again, to the 3. Richardson follows the same path again, stopped at the 1. Time out for a measurement. Third and 1 from the 1. Richardson follows left tackle, and ends up in the end zone for a Wildcat TD. Morgan Lineberry's PAT is good and the Wildcats finish a nine-play, 80-yard drive, a model of efficiency and effectiveness, and a great way to start this game. 7-0 with 11:06 left in Q1.
