The USD Coyotes took on the USD Coyotes in the annual Spring Game Friday night.
The team was split into a white team and a red team for the matchup, which followed the season’s spring practices.
There were no returns in this game, as there were no kickoffs and the punts were dead when caught, placing the ball on the 30-yard line at the beginning of each half.
The white team started the game with a quick three-and-out.
On white’s 33-yard line after a 40-yard pass to freshman Levi Falck, red senior quarterback Chris Streveler threw an interception to junior linebacker Brian Woodward at the 1-yard line.
The white team took control of the half from then on.
The interception led to a touchdown set up by an 87-yard catch by senior receiver Brandt Van Roekel, which brought the team to the 10-yard line. Freshman running back Ethan Flaniko punched in the score from four yards out.
White freshman quarterback Brevin Kaiser threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to sophomore receiver Dakirai Allen later in the quarter to put White up over Red, 14-0.
In the second quarter, junior kicker Ethan James kicked a 38-yard field goal, putting red on the board, 14-3.
White quickly answered with a 45-yard reception by senior tight end Josh Hale.
Red scored another field goal to go into the half trailing 21-6.
After the break, a long drive by the red team ended with a 40-yard field goal by James to start off the scoring in the second half.
The fourth quarter was utilized mostly to work on late-game situations.
Streveler threw a 5-yard touchdown to sophomore receiver Randy Baker midway through the quarter, cutting the lead to 21-16.
Red got the ball back with 2:06 remaining, but were unable to make anything of the drive as Streveler threw a game-ending interception to senior defensive back Ben Garlock in the middle of the field.
White took over and knelt it out to close the game with a 21-16 win.
