It was a great night for football at Lake Wales Legion Field as the Webber International University Junior-Varsity Warriors played Jacksonville University Dolphins. In the 4th quarter, the Dolphins lead Warriors 0-12. Dolphins possess the ball at the 18-yard line with just under 11 minutes to go in the 4th quarter. The Dolphins nab a couple of successive first downs, first on a run play by the quarterback and then a 15-yard run from their running back. A penalty going against them sent the ball backwards from near the 50 to the 30-yard line. The Dolphins ate time away on the clock with a lengthy time of possession as the clock wound down. The Dolphins punted it deep to the 8-yard line with 8 minutes to go. Webber’s quarterback Jeffrey Wayner fumbled the ball, then recovered on the first play of the series for a loss of two yards. A pass straight down the middle intended for Gabe McNulty was incomplete. On third down, the Warriors were unable to get much going against the Dolphins defense. This meant that Dillon Traurig had to punt it out of the end-zone. With a good roll, the ball was picked up by Jacksonville near the 50. The ball was returned near the 40-yard line. Jacksonville now at the 30, from the shotgun, the ball was then handed off to the running back. A Dolphin pass incomplete for an attempt at the right-corner goal line was overthrown. The Dolphins took a timeout near the four minute mark. On fourth down, Jacksonville punted it into the end zone for a touchback to give Webber the ball on the 20. The Warriors at 3rd and 9 were picked off as throws right at a Dolphins receiver. Jacksonville capitalized by scoring a touchdown the extra point is good and the score was 0-19. The Warriors got the ball back. A pitch left from Wayner to DJ Holley on a sweep left nowhere to go as the Jacksonville defense leaves little room to run. Two plays later, McNulty attempted a long pass down field. However, he is again intercepted by the Dolphins. Jacksonville had the ball at their own 30-yard line with less than two minutes of time left in the game. A penalty against them gave the 1st and 15 at the 28-yard line. Linebacker Cole Morgan showed some of the frustration the Webber defense felt after penalties on both sides raised tensions on the field. An unsportsmanlike conduct is called on Cole to give a penalty against the Warriors. With less than one minute to go, Webber called a time-out. From their 30, a swing pass left by Jeffrey Wayner to McNulty gained them field position near their 45-yard line. Wayner again completed to McNulty for another first-down completion to place the ball on the Dolphins 45. McNulty caught another Wayner pass for a third. In the last play in the game, McNulty caught a pass right at the goal line but was inches short of the touchdown. The game ended, 0-19 Jacksonville.
