The Riverhawks got on the scoreboard when QB Kenny Davis threw a 26-yard TD pass to WR Trey McVay. The PAT failed, leaving NSU down, 20-6.
With NSU's punt team nightmare show seemingly on rerun, freshman LB Thor Woerner blocked yet another Riverhawk kick and freshman DB Caleb Withrow recovered in the end zone for ACU's third TD of the game – all by its special teams. Lineberry missed the PAT, leaving the Wildcats up 26-6 with 3:48 left in the first half.
NSU gained some revenge on the last play of the half – a 37-yard pass from Davis to WR Kendall McKellum. A successful PAT that brought the Riverhawks to within a baker's dozen: 26-13.
An electrical storm in Talequah, Okla., before game time has rendered the NSU scoreboard dark and the stats silent, so we'll catch up with the numbers as soon as possible.
