Though neither offense was lighting up the scoreboard -- the Gold team had two touchdowns, the Black none on Saturday -- coach Danny Hope said he thought top two quarterbacks Rob Henry and Caleb TerBush executed the offense well.
TerBush, who played for both teams, completed 16 of 27 passes for 136 yards and a touchdown. He also threw an interception. Henry completed 8 of 12 passes for 76 yards and a touchdown and also rushed for 27 yards on four carries.
The first drive of the modified game -- a 55-minute quarter followed by a pair of 28-minute ones -- was the most efficient. The first-team Gold offense had a 15-play, 83-yard drive that ended in Henry's 6-yard touchdown pass to Justin Siller.
"We just got a little momentum going there," Henry said. "Coach (Gary) Nord was really good with the play-calling, and we went out and executed.
"(Siller) actually has a comeback on that (TD) play. He was covered pretty good, and there were a lot of people there. So it was a little messy. He worked back inside to a hole, and I was able to have time. Offensive line did a great job. I found him to complete the pass."
- Antavian Edison, who was on the Gold team, had game highs of five catches and 47 yards.
- Gavin Roberts had a game-high 13 carries and 48 rushing yards for the Black team.
- DeVarro Greaves and Eric Mebane both had eight tackles for the Gold team. Logan Link (Black), Antwon Higgs (Gold) and Jarrett Dieudonne (Gold) had interceptions. Black team defensive ends Ryan Russell and Robert Maci had two sacks apiece.
- Justin Kitchens started at right tackle with the first-team offense. Last season's starter, Nick Mondek, was moved to the left side to replace Dennis Kelly, who missed the game with an injury.
