Tate Beats Washington (With Football, Senior Night Photos)
November 3, 2012
The Tate Aggies went into Friday night’s Senior Night game with one thing on their minds — that so-far elusive first win of the 2012 season. And that’s just how the Aggies ended Senior Night, 35-20 over Washington.
Washington was on the board at 3-0 first with a field goal with 5:23 to go in the first quarter. The Aggies answered at 4:34 in the first with an eight-yard run from Lorenzo Long. After a good kick from Todd Ryals, the Aggies were up 7-3.
The Aggies would strike again in the first quarter, when Rashaun Johnson returned an interception 29 yards and Ryals put the pigskin through the uprights on the point after. Headed into the second, Tate was up 14-3.
In the second, Tate scored again, this time on a 25-yard pass from Devekyo Lewis to Bryan Davis, 21-3.
With 3:03 in the third, the Wildscats scored on a 26-yard pass. Tate’s Johnson returned the kickoff 88 yards for another Tate TD, and the Aggies were still on top 28-10. The Aggies, looking for that big first win of the season, scored again in the third on a 78-yard run from Long, 35-10.
Washington scored times three in the fourth quarter with a safety, a five-yard touchdown and a two-yard touchdown pass. But it wasn’t enough at Tate celebrated a 35-20 win.
With the win, the Aggies finished their 2012 season — the first under head coach Brad Naggatz — at 1-8. It was the first win for Tate since 2010 when the Aggies went 3-7.
