Drive of the game
The Hawks have been struggling to keep drives going. After a Washington Union punt, Liberty took over at its own 37. Quarterback Zach Richey scrambled for three yards. Kendall Malone carried twice for 14 yards and a first down. An incomplete pass to Travis Jordan resulted in a defensive pass interference penalty. Richey faced a fourth-and-9 from the 30-yard line. He went back to pass and got some time.
After scrambling around for about eight seconds, Richey launched a pass to the left side of the end zone. The ball went over a defender’s arms and right into Jordan’s in the end zone for the touchdown and give the Hawks some momentum with 5:37 left in the game...
