Terrapins Vs Razorbacks: Week 3

This game marked the first game that the Razorbacks would play in a series of three games over the course of five days, as the recent weather issues to the scheduling forced teams into playing catchup on the season schedule.

Just when it looked like they might convert their new set of downs into points, a bobbled pitch was grabbed by Josh and returned for the touchdown. The following extra point was tipped and then picked off by Kieran , tying the game at 6-6.

On the Terrapins next drive, they began by going back to the run game, unafraid of the chances of another turnover, converting for a first down on two plays. The following fake on the next play gave Callum Hockey enough room to haul in a deep pass from Nick Gaudion for the touchdown.The extra point attempt was again, just short of the mark. 12-6.

Razorbacks again started with a couple of strong plays which found them just short of the halfway line on fourth down. A deep pass led James Williams too far, causing a turnover on downs.

Terrapins after a short pass found more points from their run game, this time from Ben Saul, who weaved his way through would be tacklers. Bringing the score to 18-6. The following 2 point conversion attempt found Callum in the front of the endzone for the catch, bringing the score to 20-6.

Razorbacks following drive found itself stalling once again for the first down line at halfway. Terrapins in the final couple of minutes of the half moved quickly to setup each play, but after and incomplete deep pass on third down, they elected to let the clock run to the half.
