Maroon defeats Gold in weather shortened spring game

  Redshirt-freshman Reggie Gipson's 4-yard scoring scamper proved to be the only touchdown in a lightning shortened 7-3 win for Maroon over Gold in the 27th Annual Maroon & Gold Spring Game Saturday night at Memorial Stadium.

The game was called at the 9:41 mark of the third quarter due to a lightning strike within 6 miles of Golding Field.

Maroon leads the recent history of the series by a 7-4 margin, but no team has won consecutive games since 2011.

Gipson, who finished with 34 yards on six carries, found pay dirt five plays after senior linebacker Daniel Laudermilk intercepted a Hagen Hutchinson pass over the middle to give Maroon possession on the Gold 35-yard line.

Junior quarterback Quade Coward hit Levy Wilson down the right sideline for a 19-yard game to the four to set up Gipson's score.

Coward completed 7-of-10 passes for 107 yards including a 60-yard strike to Josh Murray, but it was redshirt-freshman Layton Rabb who also put up some impressive numbers.

The signal caller from Llano backed up on both squads to deliver combined numbers of 105 yards on 8-of-13 passing including a 35-yard hookup with Gold's Isaiah Wilkerson.

It was Rabb who led the Gold team on their lone scoring drive settling on a 43-yard field goal by Andy Alkhazshvilly with 3:24 to play in the first half.

Hutchinson's numbers were tainted by a a few drops as he finished 3-for-11 for 32 yards as Gold was led by junior running back Dante Taylor, who rushed for 64 yards on 11 carries.

Senior Tari Jones led the Maroon defense with six tackles, while the Gold was paced by senior Marqui Christian and Kameron Young with four stops each. Redshirt-freshman Alec DiValerio was credited with two sacks.

Midwestern State opens the 2015 campaign against Truman State (Mo.) on Sept. 5 at Memorial Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
