He presumed his last snaps were taking the final two knees in UF’s blowout win on senior day.

STAFF WRITER

Rob Keys couldn’t say enough about his defense.

The 16 points allowed hardly paint the picture of how well the defense played in the eyes of the University of Findlay football coach.

STAFF WRITER

Quality over quantity.

Only so many opportunities exist for University of Findlay kicker Grant Loveridge.

“Any outside noise you get you can just block out,” Loveridge, a Riverdale grad, said. “It’s just you, the snapper and the holder. You can only control what you can control.”

By ANDY WOLF

STAFF WRITER

CHARLESTON, W. Va. — Five turnovers and a blocked punt can dispel any kind of yardage disparity.

That’s why the University of Findlay football team headed home Saturday with a 35-24 victory over the University of Charleston.

The Oilers (4-3) finished plus-4 in the turnover margin and scored 21 points off turnovers.

“No doubt about it, that’s why we were

Back to work.

The University of Findlay football team has no time to mull over a controversial and stunning 20-17 loss to Hillsdale last week.

The Oilers’ fate was sealed when the officials ruled quarterback Adam Bertke fumbled on his goal-line lunge with less than 10 seconds to play.

Jacob Allton doesn’t miss his duties as emergency kicker.

He was called upon to kick extra points and short field
