Green & White Scrimmage

BROKEN ARROW — A late afternoon downpour cut short Northeastern State University’s Green-White spring game in half Saturday. But, it couldn’t dampen second-year coach Kenny Evans’ enthusiasm.

“We’re definitely more athletic, bigger and stronger than last year,” Evans said. “We showed we have guys who can make big plays.”

Trey McVey caught two touchdown passes and Jared Homer kicked a 23-yard field goal to push the White to a 17-7 victory at Broken Arrow High School’s Memorial Stadium. McVey caught a 15-yard strike from Kaelin Woods in the first quarter and made a leaping grab for a 40-yard score from Pat Cook in the second quarter. Homer, who had a 23-yard field goal to cap White’s first possession, kicked both extra points as White lead 17-0 at half.

Green’s only score came early in the third quarter when Johnny Evans returned a fumble 50 yards for a touchdown. Joe Kok, a Broken Arrow graduate and normally NSU’s punter, kicked the extra point. In controlled setting, the scrimmage did not have punts or kickoffs.

Moments later, lightning sent players and fans scurrying below the bleachers. After a 15-minute delay, the rest of the scrimmage was scrubbed. White’s LaRon Elmer led all rusher with 60 yards on four carries while Chris Davis had 54 yards on five carries. Green’s Prince McKinney had six carries for 51 yards.

Evans said the RiverHawks showed an improvement aside from football. “This bunch grew together as a team,” he said. “We have so many new players who showed they can work together. It’s a big step in the right direction.”
