Second Quarter Review: ACU vs. NWMo
The second quarter started with ACU trailing 7-3. The Wildcats drove the length of the field on an impressive drive, but turned it over when QB Mitchell Gale fumbled on the Bearcat 1-yard line while attempting a sneak/dive over the middle of the line. With just over 5 minutes left, NWMo QB Blake Bolles scored on a 71-yard run, his play-action fake at the completely fooling the ACU defense, which had only allowed 28 yards on the ground through the first half. ACU LB Fred Thompson intercepted Bolles on the ACU 49, and Morgan Lineberry barely missed a 40-yard field goal attempt with just under a minute left. The second quarter ended with ACU trailing 14-3.
