Redhawks At Gophers: Gray Impressive On Minnesota Scoring Drive

The Minnesota Golden Gophers have once again extended their lead over the Miami (Ohio) Redhawks, this time by a field goal to make the score 16-10 at TCF Bank Stadium.

The Gophers took the opening kickoff of the second half and, starting at their own 25-yard line, moved the ball down the field thanks to the talents of running back Donnell Kirkwood and quarterback MarQueis Gray. The first two plays of the drive saw Kirkwood carry the ball twice for 20 yards, and Gray followed that up with a 20-yard rush of his own to move the ball to the Redhawks' 35-yard line. Kirkwood and Gray moved the Gophers all the way down to the Redhawks' 6-yard line, but Gray was sacked on a 3rd-and-3 play to stop the drive.

Chris Hawthorne converted his third field goal of the afternoon, this one from 26 yards away, to give Minnesota a six-point lead at 16-10.

The Gophers are preparing to kick off at a windy TCF Bank Stadium with 8:32 left in the third quarter of play, holding a 16-10 lead over the Miami (Ohio) Redhawks.
