APPLE CUP 2011: Washington Leads 21-14 At Half, Second Half Game Thread

New, comments

The game started out very poorly for the Washington State Cougars. The University of Washington blocked a punt on WSU's opening drive a returned it four a touchdown. A few drives later, Keith Price hooked up with Kasen Williams to put UW up 14-0. Things got worse as WSU running back fumbled the ball away to the Huskies on the next possession and UW began driving into Cougar territory. The Huskies missed a field goal, and the face of the game changed.

Marshall Lobbestael led the Cougs down the field, connecting with Jared Karstetter on a 3rd and 14 to cut the Husky lead in half. After a stop by the defense and partially blocked punt gave WSU good field position, they drove down the field again. Todd Sturdy worked his magic, drawing up two passing plays to little-used tight end Andrei Lintz to get deep into UW territory. Lobbestael would connect with Marquess Wilson on a TD to tie the game at 14.

However, the Huskies were able to drive down the field quickly and Price connected with Williams again for their second touchdown of the day to put UW up 21-14 at the half.

WSU will receive the ball to start the second half. This is your second half gamethread.
