White Takes 3-0 Win in Spring Football Game


SALISBURY, N.C. -- The White held off the Blue, winning 3-0, in Catawba's annual spring football game on Saturday at Shuford Stadium.  Lee Brackman accounted for the lone points with a field goal in the first quarter on the opening drive.

Eamon Smart was the workhorse for the White as he carried 21 times for 90 yards.  Fifteen of those carries came in the first half.  Joseph Dress, who quarterback the White for most of the second half, ran for 39 yards and completed a pass for 10 yards.

David Burgess ran for 76 yards on 16 carries to pace the Blue.  Reid Carlton completed four-of-nine passes for 53 yards and had a potential game-winning touchdown pass nullified with a sack on a fourth down play inside the final minute.

Mike Sheehan guided the White to points on its first possession.  Smart got things started with a 30-yard burst on the game's first play.  The opening 11-play, 55-yard drive stalled at the 20 and Brackman came on to boot a 37-yard field goal into a stiff wind for the lone points.

The Blue had just two first downs in the first half, but got its offense moving in the second half.  An early drive into White territory ended with a fumble that was recovered by Michael Mosley.

The final drive for the Blue started at its own 13.  Burgess had a 19-yard run early in the drive and Carlton completed a 24-yard pass to Gavin Rose on fourth down to keep the drive alive.  Facing another fourth down, Carlton rolled out, but was deemed down on a sack by Jamal Lackey before he could get off the final pass to end the Blue hopes.
