Tiffin 6, Northwood 0, 12:56
What Happened: After coach David Walkosky stressed turnovers, Tiffin got one on the first play from scrimmage. Spencer Klukowski fumbled the opening snap and Lance Timmons recovered around the Timberwolves 40. The Dragons cashed in when Cameron Mobley scored on a run from six yards out. The extra point failed when a bad snap forced TU holder Mike Lento to throw into the end zone, but the pass fell incomplete.
-Antoine Carr, after making a big catch over the middle for Northwood, gets injured after the hit. The ambulance comes out on the field and the game is delayed. Best wishes to Carr, who made a fantastic catch. (12:41)
-Pat Sijan's 30-yard field goal attempt for Northwood goes wide right. (9:05)
- Tiffin again stops a promising Northwood drive when Joe Crawford recovers a Torris Childs fumble at the TU 35. That's halfway to Walkosky's goal. (3:01)
- Tiffin goes for it on fourth and three at the 50. Quarterback Matt Root hands the ball to Mobley and gets the first down. On the next play, Root throws into double coverage, and Kevin Berrian intercepts inside the TU 20. (6:06)
-TU catches a major, major break when Chris Kollias drops his punt attempt at around the 30. He recovers and kicks a 4-yard grounder, which the Dragons pounce on. (1:06)
TU moves the ball to the Northwood 24, and faces a fourth and 1 with :49 left. A pass to Edwards is caught out of bounds, but a holding call keeps the drive alive. (:42).
Tiffin 14, Northwood 0, :36
What Happened: On the following play, Root loops a pass to Edwards in the end zone, who stretches out and grabs it on the right side. The Dragons go fou two, and Root finds a wide open Edwards, this time on the left side.
- Northwood drives to the TU 34, but is held.
Update from Alliance: At halftime, Mount Union 35, Heidelberg 0.
-Dragons get the ball and start promisingly, driving to the Northwood 43. Then it all falls apart, thanks to a botched reverse which loses close to 20 yards. Root is then sacked and the Dragons punt. (11:34)
Tiffin 14, Northwood 8, 5:31
What Happened: Northwood drove 78 yards in 10 plays, capped by a four-yard run by Klukowski. The Timberwolves add a fake extra point, and take the ball in for two.
-Mobley returns the ensuing kickoff to the Northwood 47. Actually, he ran it back all the way, but stepped out of bounds. (4:50).
Tiffin 20, Nothwood 8, 3:55
What Happened: On a first down from the 37, Root drops back and lofts a pass down the right side to a wide open Edwards for his second touchdown. Extra point fails.
Tiffin 20, Northwood 15, 1:13
What Happened: A kick return to midfield, aided by a personal foul penalty set up a 35-yard drive, capped by a three-yard Klukowski rush.
-Dragons put together a strong drive, getting a first down at the Northwood 5. But a holding penalty and sack set the Dragons back. It's a fourth down and goal from the 10. Having missed a pair of extra points, the Dragons go, and a Root pass is picked off in the end zone. (8:50)
-The Timberwolves drive to the Dragons 18, facing a fourth and four.
Northwood 21, Tiffin 20, 4:43
