Conference Perfect Panthers Pound Pride 66-23

Ferrum took their record to 5-2 Saturday with a decisive 66-23 thumping of the Greensboro College Pride. Greensboro (0-7, 0-4) had a fairly competitive first half as they trailed 28- 16 at the intermission. This seemingly close halftime score was greatly assisted by three Ferrum turnovers that lead to 13 of their 16 points.
In the second half, Ferrum received the kickoff, and six plays later, Marcus Mayo scored from five yards out. After the Scott Puschell extra point, The Panthers had a 35-16 lead.
On the first play of the next Greensboro possession, QB Ryan Thorndset's pass was intercepted by Delano Hall, giving Ferrum possession. The Panthers were not able to convert this, but there were not many other ocassions that they did not score.

Ferrum dominated, and this was not a surprise....The real tests begin Saturday vs. Shenandoah. The Panthers need your support for these next two games. More info to come on these games.

  1. We will need all the support can get. But let me note this. I was at the game this past Staurday and saw that what it seems we only have few selected players that even see the ball. You know I have said this all year. Mayo is a very good QB but let me say this, he is only as good as the the players will let him be. If he does not start looking at and using the boys that are wide open down field I might have to say the next two games are going to be very very close. He needs to open his eyes and start looking down field. The wide receivers like # 85, 82 and 10 have all been open down field. We all know Mayo has the arm to throw long. He can go from being a good QB to a great QB. So please someone show him the full field view of the field and tell that good QB to step it up and use the other players that are blocking for him and throw the ball and by the way what ever happen to # 37 why is it that he is not seeing the ball that much either. I would like to see the Panthers put up a lot of points under the lights this Saturday. We are by far a much better team and we will go a long way. I will say Ferrum will be up to the win 40 to 17.
