In the 3rd, QB Blake Sides calls his own number for a 2 yard run to extend the Bulls lead to 19-7. The extra point was a failed attempt to run around the right side after a high snap.
Carson found new life with running back Shaun Warren. He ripped off several big runs capping them off with a 13 yard TD. PAT blocked and we have a game on our hands as we go to the 4th.
Mother Nature stepped in as the Bulls took the kickoff. Officials, taking a safety first approach called for a 30 min delay due to lighting in the area. Once the teams returned from the locker rooms, the game was suspended due to lighting.
