Frost puts game away in the third, beats Itasca 26-2
by Dan Lunsford Special to the Daily Sun
ITASCA – Once Frost (3-0) controlled the time of possession in the third quarter, the Polar Bears pulled away from Itasca (0-3) for a 26-2 win. Polar Bears QB Kobe Hailey ran for 180 yards on 15 carries for four touchdowns – two of those runs coming in the third quarter.
Itasca limited the Polar Bears to just 6:58 of offensive possession in the first half. While the Frost defense forced two Wampus Cats turnovers and held on two fourth down conversion attempts, the offense fumbled away the Bears’ first two drives. Hailey intercepted Itasca QB Jacob Lacey inside the Frost end zone and DB Devin Gruben broke up a pass on a fake punt. After LB Collin Drain recovered an Itasca fumble at the Bears’ 39 yard line, the Frost offense used a Hailey completion to Leonel Hernandez on a crossing pattern for 25 yards and a Hailey 17-yard run to take the lead.
