Marquette Stumbles in the Mud, Falls 31-17 to Fox

The first half of the Marquette at Fox game was played in a steady drizzle, which turned the field into a mud slick and the sidelines into a swampy puddle.

The Fox players didn’t seem to care about the mud or the cold, because they ruled the field during the second half of play.

Both teams scored once in the first period, with Marquette drawing first blood when Junior Matt Scheibel. A few minutes later Fox  Junior Ramonz Jones evened the score with a 69 yard rushing touchdown.

Marquette and Fox seemed evenly match during the first half, tying the game twice, at 7 points and then at 14. But Marquette put their final numbers on the board with six minutes to go in the second period when Junior Corley Collin kicked a 23 yard field goal to end the first half at 14 to 17.

After that it was all Fox.

Fox tied the game back up in the third period with a field goal by Junior Jacob Graham.  Senior wide receiver Tyler Brewer bought home a touch down from a 20 yard pass from Junior quarterback Tyler Thompson.

With three minutes to go, wide receiver Tray Hubbard scored on a 60 yard rushing touchdown. Thompson completed a pass to Brewer for the two point conversion, bringing the final score to 31-17.

Patch tried to catch up with Head Coach Ryan Thornhill, but he quickly excused himself when he saw his players mixing it up with members of the Fox team on their way to the locker room.
