Tigers blow out Storm at Homecoming, 46-14

(Continued)

Ada —

Snell did the rest of the scoring, running in from the two and 10-yard lines for the two first-quarter touchdowns and then taking the 50 yarder for his Beep Beep Special past stunned Crimson Storm defenders. It ended with him crossing the goal line 11 seconds before the half.

He also caught three passes from quarterback Spencer Bond for 90 yards in the first half alone.

McCarty says Jo Jo has a motor. More like a jet engine to be precise.

As for Bond, who had 251 yards throwing in the first half, including his three touchdowns, the sophomore quarterback finished with 19 completions in 27 attempts.

In the first half he was 11 of 13. He could do no wrong.

Unfortunately, Bond threw one bad pass in the game, and it ended a promising drive for the Tigers early in the third quarter.

“I felt like it was a trendsetter for the second half,” McCarty said. “We had a 40-7 lead and that’s when some of our guys started playing the clock. I don’t care what the scoreboard says. I want us to play hard on every down.”

In the fourth quarter, Tiger reserves took the field, including backup quarterback Austin Crisler. He had trouble getting the snap from center but did complete one pass for 35 yards.

So together, the two quarterbacks produced 161 yards of passing, even in the less-eventful second half.

Another positive is that eight different receivers caught passes from ECU quarterbacks in the game for a total of 412 passing yards on 20 catches.

The leading receiver was senior Lindsey Anderson, who had three catches for 114 yards, including a 56-yarder after a spectacular scramble by Bond.

Caleb Holley and LaQuan Harper also caught TD passes from Bond.

The Tigers, playing with star defensive back Qumain Black in street clothes because of a high ankle sprain, nonetheless held the Bethany school to just seven points until the final 6:11 on the clock.
