Football Wrap Up: Home Game V. Meyers (9/6/14)

By: Cayli Allen/Editor-In-Chief


In a nail biter home opener, the Susquehanna Sabers played until the last minute to try to get the win.

In the first half of the game, Brett Hepler scored a touchdown, putting the Sabers ahead of Meyers 7-6. At the beginning of the second half, Meyers scored a touchdown but failed the two point conversion. At the end of the third quarter, the score held steady at 12-7. In the first part of the fourth quarter, Meyers scored a touchdown and the extra point is good; Meyers brought the score to 19-7. Following that, Austin White had a quarterback sneak for a touchdown. The kick by Steve Jesse was good for the extra point.  With under eight minutes left into the game, Sabers were down 19-14. There still seemed like there would be a chance for the Sabers to take the lead. The fourth quarter was a nail biter; it seemed like the Sabers had a chance to win the game. First Meyers had a false start against them. Then the punt was recovered, which put the Sabers in a good scoring position. Then it began to go downhill: Meyers then got control of the ball and the score stood still. Once again, there was hope for a win after Austin White had a long gain, followed by a delayed hit after he stepped out of bounds. There was just not enough time for the Sabers to get another touchdown.

Meyers took a knee to end the game. The final score was 19-14.
