The speedy back raced down the sideline, taking the ball all the way, but the play was nullified by a blocking in the back penalty. Jaquan Smith set up under center for BTW’s first play. The Indians’ Reggie Richmond blasted through and threw Smith for a 7-yard loss. The Warriors punted on fourth down.
