Riders second-half comeback falls short to Elida

September 10, 2011

Quarterback Reggie McAdams and the Elida Bulldogs’ offense returned to the field just in time to halt the St. Marys football team’s second-half comeback bid.

McAdams engineered a game-defining 11-play, 64-yard touchdown drive in the closing minutes of the third quarter and into the early fourth quarter to give Elida the cushion it needed to escape from Skip Baughman Stadium with a 42-23 victory.

Elida had a worn-out defense and the Roughriders had scored 15 points in less than two minutes to close to within five points late in the third quarter.
