11-on-11 Rundown

Wilkins: On a nice move around the right side of the line, Wicker came from behind and sacked Wilkins. Wilkins was touched as he didn’t see the Wicker going after him. On the next play, Harry ran a short out route and was thrown a bullet that popped out of his hands. Ralston then ran the ball for the next two plays. He gained about three yards on his first run up the middle and danced around the defense for about a six yards.

Barnett: Benjamin took a hand off up the middle and gained nearly three yards. Barnett then pitched the ball to Smith who ran around the line to the right side of the field and out of bounds for about a six-yard gain. On the last play, Barnett took the ball himself and followed his blockers for about eight yards before a whistle was blown.
