DANVILLE, Va. (WDBJ) Amherst and George Washington met back in September when the Lancers racked up 500 plus yards of offense in erasing a 16 point deficit to win by 10. Tonight, the rematch in Danville.
The GW coaches called an early timeout to discuss a fourth down.
On that play Carlos Poole rolls out tries to find Samuel Branch but the pass falls incomplete and the Eagles turn it over on downs.
Keshon Turner was under duress all night. Here he gets pressured and the pass falls incomplete.
The Eagles finally get something cooking. Poole drops back and finds a wide open Shawn Watlington for the 35 yard touchdown and it was 7-nothing George Washington.
The Lancers then decide to go for it on fourth down. Frank Ross up the middle, gets the first down and breaks free, but they had blown the play dead.
