Defense strong in shortened Wolfpack spring game

RALEIGH - Terrell Manning raced back an interception 53 yards for a touchdown and Tyler Brosius passed 1 yard to Tyler Purvis for a score as the Red took a 13-3 win over the White in N.C. State's Kay Yow Spring Football Game.

The game at Carter-Finley Stadium was called with 4:17 left in the third quarter because of threatening weather.

The Red team, anchored by the first-team defense, constantly pressured White quarterback Mike Glennon and the first-team offense. The Red, which led 13-3 at the half, tipped three Glennon passes at the line in the first half, and linebacker Audie Cole also had a pick that set up a TD.

Glennon was 21-of-40 for 182 yards and was sacked three times. His longest throw was a 30-yard completion to tight end George Bryan. The White's only score came on a 33-yard field goal by Ellis Flint.

The defensive front of J.R. Sweezy, Jeff Reiskamp, junior-college transfer McKay Frandsen and Markus Kuhn put a strong pass rush on Glennon. Cole, Manning and the other linebackers got a lot of hands on throws and the secondary came up with some big hits.

Brosius was 11-of-17 for 95 yards and was sacked four times. Daniel Imhoff also got a few series with the Red and was 2-of-6 for 8 yards and an interception

Purvis, a sophomore fullback, had three catches for 45 yards for the Red, including a 34-yarder. Halfback James Washington rushed for 47 yards for the White and caught six balls for 32 yards -- all in the first half.

Official attendance for the game was 13,139.

Pack fans should be happy that it rained so much. saved the school some money.

normally they have to bring out the big hoses to hose down the stands after the fans pee in them during the game.

but the downpour saturday took care of that.

congrats to the WolpFack
