Game Thread: vs Liberty

Post by armyfan1993 » Sat Sep 08, 2018 12:36 pm

Didn't see one, so I figured I'd get it kicked off.

Liberty series 1: Fumble forced and recovered by McClinton

Army Series 1: Long drive that appeared to end with a Hopkins 41 yard TD run, called back for a low block on Hobbs. Questionable call, as he was in front of the guy he blocked. Offense stalls and punts.

Liberty Series 2: Couple first downs, eventually punt around the 50

Army Series 2: 81 yard drive for a TOUCHDOWN, 20+ yard run by Calen Holt who bounced outside off a fullback dive. Hobbs, Hopkins, Holk, Woolfolk all with big runs that drive.

Liberty goes 3 and out. Riley makes a really nice play to break up a long pass that was in the WR's hands. Good pressure on third down forces an overthrow. Reynolds returns the punt out past the 50, nice 22 yard return

Liberty punted called for targeting as he makes the tackle on the return. Ejected from the game + 15 yard penalty. It's not even the 2nd quarter. That could be huge later in the game if Liberty doesn't have anyone else to punt.

2 plays, and it's another Army touchdown. Walker for 3 yards to the outside, Woolfolk for 26 yards for the touchdown. Salyers PAT good.

14-0 Army

Undisciplined penalty by Hammersticks. 15 yard unnecessary roughness penalty after stopping a jet sweep for a couple yards. Weak call but had to be made.

Gibby Gibson with the first sack of the day. He's been great in 2 games coming off the edge from the secondary

Army defense forces another punt. We'll see how the new "punter" does.

End of 1, Army 14, Liberty 0.

I hope the lack of comments in this thread is because folks are at the game, seems to be a good crowd. I'll be going next weekend, first game at Michie in 7-8 years for me. Probably will be the only one I get to before Navy.

Another illegal block penalty puts Army in a hole and forces punt. Second holding penalty on Army was declined on third down to force the punt. Liberty starts at their own 23.

Riley called for a PI on a ball that was uncatchable...that's a tough matchup for him outside. But I love seeing the CBs playing press coverage and up on the line of scrimmage. Much prefer that than giving up 5-8 yards on the route, which we still sometimes see in the slot

Fred Cooper is going to be a good one. What a damn good stiff arm as he turns the corner.

I guess Cooper is the same Fred Cooper listed on the latest official site roster as a DB wearing number 27.
