From a fans point of view you couldn't ask for a better game to see. Good offense, lots of defense, and very special special teams.
The Rough Riders started out the scoring with a 28 yard TD pass from Hoffmann to Roraff. Extra point good. Rough Riders 7-0. Early on, the Thunderhawks were able to move the ball on the ground but the Rough Riders would hang tough to prevent them from scoring. The Thunderhawks got on the board in the 2nd quarter when Hoffmann threw a an interception and it was run back for a score. Extra point good. 7-7 Halftime.
Midway through the 3rd quarter, Hoffmann hit CJ Woods with 70 yard TD pass. Extra point good 14-7.
Both defenses played very well. For the Rough Riders Will Hoglund lead the way with 5 tackles, 2 sacks, 1 pass deflection and a forced fumble.
The Thunderhawks were able to get behind the defense in the fourth quarter after a quarterback scramble and finding a receiver in the back of the endzone. 14-14.
Each team had a chance to take the lead in the 4th quarter but failed to do so. The Rough Riders drove the ball down to the T Hawks 23 yard line before fumbling the ball away. The T Hawks then took the ball all the way to the Rough Rider 12 yard line with less than 30 seconds left. They attempted a field goal which was blocked and picked up by DeAndre Hooper. He then ran it back down the T Hawks 34 yard line with 16 seconds left. The Rough Riders completed a pass to the T Hawk 14 but ran out of time. 14-14 Overtime.
