Radford whips Auburn

RADFORD — The Radford Bobcats’ William Saunders intercepted two passes and scored two touchdowns on 29- and 25-yard pass receptions to help lead the Bobcats to a 35-7 victory Friday night over Auburn.
Radford came out a little flat on what turned out to be a damp, cool night.
Auburn (2-5 and 0-2 in the Three Rivers District) got on the scoreboard first when quarterback Derrick Duncan threw a 23-yard touchdown pass to Keifer Titus and the point after made it 7-0 Eagles with eight minutes left in the second quarter.
With five minutes before the half, Auburn’s punter Cameron Quesenberry went to punt on fourth down and six from the 15 yard line and shanked the punt off the side of his foot, netting zero yards, and Radford set up shop at the Auburn 15.
This seemed to turn the momentum of the game completely around.
Sophomore quarterback Dontae Carter later hit Ryan Webb on a 10-yard TD strike. Michael Goodman’s PAT tied the score at 7 with 3:30 showing on the clock.
Auburn’s next possession ended as Saunders intercepted a pass and Radford took over at the Auburn 37. Five plays later, Carter found Saunders open in the endzone for a 25-yard TD pass and Radford went up 14-7.
As the third quarter started, Auburn was stopped and Radford (6-1, 2-0) took over and drove to the Eagles’ 32 before Patrick Webb fumbled with Auburn recovering.
On their first play, however, the Eagles fumbled and Webb recovered at the Auburn 31.
Carter then hit Saunders with a 29-yard flea-flicker for a touchdown and Radford was up 21-7 with seven minutes to go in the third.
Radford’s defense held Auburn as they took over on the Eagles’ 35. Three plays later Carter went around left end for a five-yard touchdown, and the Cats were up, 28-7.
Radford’s last score came in the fourth quarter when running back Dre Thompson bulled over from the one yard line. Goodman’s PAT finished the scoring for a 35-7 homecoming win.
Radford head coach Matthew Saunders said Auburn is a well-coached team. “We came out a little unfocused to start the game, and I’m disappointed in our penalties. We have to play better up front on both sides of the ball next week.”
Radford travels to Shawsville to play Eastern Montgomery next Friday with kickoff at 7:30 p.m.
