Cards Score Two 1st Half Field Goals
Sept. 22, 2006
Collinsville took an early 3-0 lead over Miami with 4:09 remaining in the 1st quarter. This came on the Cardinal's 2nd possession of the game which had started at Miami's 34 yard line following a short Miami punt.
The Card's defense started Miami moving backwards on their 2nd possession (above) but Miami's QB broke free from a potential loss on the next play and scrambled out to the 46. A few plays later Miami covered the final 28 yards on the play below and took a 3-7 lead with 1:23 left in the 1st quarter.
Tyler Chronister (#5) kicked a second field goal for Collinsville at 9:39 in the 2nd quarter for a 6-7 score. The 43 yard field goal ended a drive that started at the Card's 24 before the end of the 1st quarter. The drive featured passes to Dalton Rasmussen and Kyle Lee Smith and a rush by Garrett Thurman to reach Miami's 16 yard line. A delayed incomplete call on a pass to Kevin Phillips and a loss on a Tyler Chronister keeper back to the 25 brought up 4th down.
The softball "Lady Cards" wore the "we-fense" term Coach Craig used after last week's game to emphasize the total team effort not just offense or defense.
This Card defender applied plenty of pressure but the Miami pass was still completed in the 2nd quarter. That Miami drive ended with a fake field goal and incomplete pass on 4th down at the 14 yard line. Collinsville moved out from there to the 43 before a Miami defender ripped the ball from Kyle Smith and scored the 2nd Miami TD at 3:55 before half and a 6-14 score.
Kevin Phillips (#11) had several Miami kickoffs to field in the first half. A few of the kicks reached the end zone for touchbacks, but this one was returned by Kevin out to the 27 yard line before he was slammed to the ground. This kickoff came with Miami up 6-28 with 29 second left in the 1st half. The last two Miami TDs before the half followed an interception (at Miami's 30) and a fumble (at the Card's 16).
