Tigers Clobber St. Francis 46-17 in Homecoming Game

September 27, 2012

Happy homecoming Towson!  I know, that I am a little late on that sentiment, but better late than never right?

That saying was certainly true when it came to the Tigers taking on St. Francis this past weekend.  After a slow start and going down 7-0 to the Red Flash, the Tigers took control of the game and went on to score 29 unanswered points.

Grant Enders led the Tigers offensive unit like a true field general.  After getting intercepted on his first pass of the game, Enders went on to complete 14 out of his attempted 18 passes.  He finished with 179 passing yards and two touchdowns.

Terrance West got back into the end-zone after being kept from scoring by William & Mary the previous week.  West averaged almost eight yards per carry and got scored not once, not twice, but three times against a weak St. Francis defense.

The Tigers defense had a huge obstacle to get around this past game, literally.

St. Francis has a 401 lb. right guard in Lloyd Hill that paves the way for Red Flash running back Keion Wade.  Hill did his job and the Red Flash finished the game with 179 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns.

401 pound Lloyd Hill is a personal bulldozer for St. Francis running backs.

However, it takes a complete offense to win games.  Towson’s defense controlled the air all night only surrendering 54 total passing yards the entire game.

Senior defensive back Jordan Dangerfield and freshman linebacker Bryton Barr led the Tigers in tackles with eight each.  Defensive lineman Romele Tucker rushed the St. Francis quarterback, John Kelly, all night and sacked him twice.

Offensively, in addition to West’s three scores, Tom Ryan, Gerrard Sheppard, and Derrick Joseph all found the end-zone.  Joseph’s touchdown came off of a 99 yard kick off return that tied the game at 7.

The Tigers will move on to a tougher opponent this week as they head on down to the bayou to face Louisiana State University.
