UTSA Football Fiesta Spring Game ends in 7-7 deadlock

SAN ANTONIO — The UTSA Football Fiesta Spring Game ended in a 7-7 tie on Thursday night before an estimated crowd of 2,700 at Dub Farris Athletic Complex.
The game featured the offense (Blue) versus the defense (White) and used a modified scoring system with touchdowns and turnovers worth two points, while field goals and defensive stops counted as one point each.
Wearing white jerseys, the defense opened the game with three consecutive stops to take a 3-0 lead. The first drive stalled after a sack on third down helped force a punt, while the second possession saw a 52-yard field goal attempt by Jared Sackett hit the right upright. Walker Baty and Chace Davis teamed up for a sack on third down to help force a punt on the next drive.
The offense, wearing blue jerseys, got on the board on their fourth possession of the night, as Frank Harris capped a 58-yard scoring march with a 3-yard touchdown pass to Dan Dishman.
The Blue then took a 4-3 lead after a 65-yard drive ended with a 34-yard TD pass from Cam Peters to Tykee Ogle-Kellogg. Peters, a redshirt sophomore from Stafford, Texas, also had a 17-yard completion to Tre'Von Bradley to help set up the score.
The White responded with a stop that forced a 53-yard punt by Lucas Dean, resulting in a 4-4 deadlock at halftime.
The defense began the second half with two more stops, using sacks by Jalen Rainey and Zach Causey to stop the first possession and then a sack by Jaden Jones on fourth down to halt the second drive and take a 6-4 advantage.
The offense then reeled off three unanswered points to take a 7-6 lead. Everett Ornstein drilled a 46-yard field goal after Diego Tello completed passes to Kyle Eaves and Dre Spriggs. On the next possession, Peters found a wide-open Kennedy Lewis in the end zone for a 16-yard scoring connection. Sackett then made the extra point to put the Blue up by one point.
A Christian Clayton sack highlighted the next drive, which ended with a defensive stop and provided the final 7-7 tally.
