ODAC Football Play of the Week: Week 5
ODAC Football Play of the Week Nominees - Week 5
ODAC Football Play of the Week - Week 5: Bridgewater
Bridgewater took a two-point lead on Guilford with a little over three minutes to play, but that left the Quakers a chance to overtake the Eagles. Guilford was on the march late in the frame and reached the 14-yard line with less than a minute to play on an extraordinary pass-and-catch. On the ensuing play, Bridgewater took advantage of a bobbled snap and forced pressure on the quarterback. He tried to throw back across the line, but Dustin Green stepped in front of the errant throw and hauled it in for an interception with 34-seconds to play to secure a 30-28 victory.
ODAC Football Play of the Week - Week 5: Guilford
Guilford and Bridgewater played in a back-and-forth affair on Saturday on featured five lead changes before the final whistle. The Quakers needed a little magic to keep their chances alive for a six shift in advantage. That came in the form of a pass-and-catch from Alex Manley to Montek Johnson. Manley initially eluded heavy pressure before tossing a back-foot throw as he was being hit by a Guilford lineman. Johnson went up and pulled down the floated pass for a 24-yard gain and first down with 45-seconds to play. Bridgewater, however, would maintain its lead and go on to win, 30-28.
ODAC Football Play of the Week - Week 5: Hampden-Sydney
Hampden-Sydney got a big passing day from quarterback Alec Cobb – 519 yards and five touchdowns thru air – but it was an unexpected thrower that provided this highlight. Running back Kaleb Smith, who was a run-pass option quarterback in high school, took the shotgun snap and faked a quick inside-handoff before lofting a pass out in front of Blake Page. The Tigers’ receiver reached out with one hand and hauled in the 30-yard pass with a defender draped all over him. Smith, meanwhile, scored on a five-yard shuffle pass on the ensuing play. Hampden-Sydney went on to win, 56-27.
ODAC Football Play of the Week - Week 5: Randolph-Macon
Figuring that scoring would be at a premium against Washington and Lee, Randolph-Macon used ball-control as its main weapon in defeating the Generals, 23-7. The Yellow Jackets controlled possession for more than 23 minutes in the first half, including a seven-play 42-yard drive in the second quarter following a scoreless first frame. Eric Hoy put an end to that drive with this 12-yard motion end-around that caught much of the W&L defense off-guard. Hoy went around end and into the end zone untouched for a 7-0 with 14:54 showing on the second quarter clock.
