Argoes Drop Season Finale To West Georgia

November 13, 2016

The UWF football team saw its inaugural season come to an end with a 69-0 loss to 2-time defending Super Region 2 champion West Georgia before 6,088 fans at Blue Wahoos Stadium Saturday.

UWF (5-6, 3-5 Gulf South Conference) finished with five victories in 2016, tying the most by a first-year Division 2 program over the last 10 years. Florida Tech and New Haven each won five games in their first seasons.

The Argonauts completed the ultra-competitive GSC season tied for sixth place after being tabbed eighth in the preseason coaches poll.

UWF had three sellouts at Blue Wahoos Stadium and drew more than 31,000 fans to the downtown venue over five home dates. The 6,328 average attendance currently puts the program at 19th in the country. Each home game drew more than 6,000 with a football capacity of 6,288.

On Saturday, UWF finished with 138 yards of total offense. Graduate quarterback Kaleb Nobles surpassed the 3,000-yard mark with 72 yards on 11-of-23 passing. Freshman running back Chris Schwarz was the team’s leading rusher with 44 yards on nine carries.

UWG (7-4, 4-4) showed why it was the preseason pick to win the GSC, collecting 336 yards on the ground and 225 through the air. The Wolves scored 31 points off six Nobles interceptions and were 9-of-9 inside the red zone.

UWG scored on 11 of 14 possessions, including its first eight. The Wolves registered 21 points in the first quarter and 27 in the second for a 48-0 lead at the half.

UWF honored four seniors prior to the game and could return 20 starters and more than 70 other student-athletes when spring practice begins in March 2017.

“We have a special group. They (Gulf Breeze) are a heck of a football team. They didn’t quit either. We expected it to be a dog fight and it was,” Tate Head Coach Jay Lindsey said.

Tate took an early 7-0 lead that was quickly answered by Gulf Breeze to make it 7-7.

The Aggies came back on a quarterback keeper by Jake Henry to go up 14-7.  Then, with the score now 14-14, the Aggies were headed back on top with a Sharmari Jones touchdown, 21-14. The Dolphins tied up 21-21 with a 76-yard touchdown run before taking a 28-21 lead.

Tate score again on a Henry to Corey Young touchdown pass and another quarterback keeper from Henry, 35-35.

Jones plunged in across the goal line with just 6.8 seconds on the clock for the game winning touchdown, 42-38.

“Kids don’t quit,” Lindsey said. “You’re down 14 third quarter, six minutes left keep playing football.

The Tate Aggies (9-2) will host the Navarre Raiders next Friday night in round two of the playoffs.
