ACU Firestorm Fall to Panthers in Michigan


Davenport Owned Second Half in 20-7 Win .


Michigan is home to the 2-3 Davenport University Panthers. The 1-2 Arizona Christian University Firestorm made the long trip but came up on the losing end of the 20-7 score.


The first half ended with ACU trailing 13-7 when they started a drive from inside their five yard line. Instead of just trying to go slow and end the half Head Coach Jeff Bowen showed some courage by opening up the passing game.The offense moved close enough to try a 35 yard field goal that would have made the score 13-10. The kick by Derek Brush had the distance but went wide. It was a good way to end the half.


The second half was all Panthers as they added a touchdown and some great play by the defense that included drive stopping interceptions.


The Firestorm offense struggled to keep drives alive. QB Gerrit Groenewold threw for 247 yards and 24 completions but the three interceptions to only one TD did them in.Donovan Smith did catch eight for 101 yards and a TD. Tyler Dunken had 48 yards and Johnathan Parks added 35 for the receivers.


The defense had some bright spots with great play from Orlando Thompson INT, Joshua Carter, Austin Schleier, Malik Sawyer and Seivion Morris making key tackles. 


Next up for the the Firestorm is their first home game at Shadow Mountain High School at 2pm vs the Langston Lions who are 2-1 heading into tonight's 6pm game vs McMurray. ACU is 1-0 vs Langston.
