Georgetown, Ky. - In the 117th annual Orange & Black scrimmage, Georgetown College showcased a bit of everything.
Georgetown’s administration got in on the fun with new president Dr. M Dwaine Greene heading up the Orange and new Vice President of Advancement Dr. Todd Rasberry at the helm of the Black.
“We work for all spring and this is a time for our players and fans to have some fun,” said GC coach Bill Cronin. “It was really unique and special to have Dr. Greene and Dr. Rasberry involved. I think it was a successful night all the way around.”
The Black posted a 37-10 win, putting the unit ahead 59-58 all-time in the series.
The Black broke the game open on 14-unanswered points in the second quarter. With the game tied at 7, Tanner Evans threw a four-yard loft that was hauled in by Alan Williams for the score. A series later it was Evans finding Clay Kesterson for a 50-plus yard strike and a 21-7 advantage.
The Orange, who opened the scoring with a fumble recovery and score, drove the field for a Josh Depp field goal. The Black responded with a field goal of its own for a two score lead at the break. The teams traded interceptions on back-to-back plays, but the Black translated it into another touchdown and a 31-10 score after three.
Evans to Sean Kratchman capped off the scoring late in the fourth quarter.
“If we come out of spring healthy and have some fun doing it, that is the goal and I feel we achieved that,” Cronin said.
Georgetown now takes some time off until summer camp and will lead to the home opener Sept. 13 against Bethel University.
