A first for YSU vs. Albany

September 15, 2012 - Dana Sulonen
For the first time all season, the Youngstown Penguins trailed in a ball game. But it didn't last long.

On its first series of the game, Kurt Hess threw a pass to tight end Will Shaw, but as he got hit, Shaw let the ball pop out and it was caught by an Albany defender. It was a rare mistake by the Penguins.

And the Great Danes made them pay. On a double-reverse, flee flicker, Albany quarterback Will Fiacchi found Cole King wide open for a 44-yard touchdown. After the PAT, Albany led 7-0, giving the Penguins a view of the game they haven't seen all season.

But YSU answered right back. The Penguins drove 87 yards in 10 plays, and were helped out by two huge penalties by Albany, to even the score at 7.

Albany is no slouch and is getting to Kurt Hess more than any team has this year. YSU is driving now, but is going to need to play smart ball the rest of the game to come up with a win.

Score after first quarter, 7-7.
