September 02, 2009 A late controversial penalty proved costly for Crawford County Friday night when a touchdown was called back with just 23 seconds left in the game.
Quarterback Isaac Bowles had just thrown a pass to Chris Schwartz in the end zone to put the Wolfpack in front, 20-18. That score, however, was disallowed when Crawford County was called for an illegal man down field. With the touchdown gone, the host Blackhawks held on for a 18-14 win.
Crawford County had two touchdowns, both involving Bowles. The first came when he threw a 24-yard pass to Evan Aldridge. Bowles later took the ball into the end zone from 10 yards. He then threw to Cody Cotner for the two-point conversion.
Crawford County finished with 278 yards of offense. The Wolfpack rushed the ball 30 times for 118 yards and connected on 14 of 25 times for 160 yards. Andrew Douglas ran the ball 15 times for 64 yards, Jonathon Bowles tallied 17 yards on six carries, and Isaac Bowles carried eight times for 36 yards. Aldridge caught two passes for 50 yards, and Jonathon Bowles caught eight passes for 69 yards. Cotner tallied 31 yards on three receptions.
On defense James Grant recorded two tackles, while Boone Kenner and Blake Hogue each had five tackles and Cotner had four tackles. James Grant blocked a point-after kick attempt, and Jason Bledsoe recovered a fumble.
