Each team flipped the ball four times.
The center of the state enters the fourth quarter with bullets
Central State regains its lead with two possessions of Aaron Kinpriw’s one-yard run with four seconds remaining in the third quarter. It’s 34-21 thieves.
Don’t count the rams out yet
Well, Winston-Salem State probably isn’t out of this thing yet.
Richard Latimer’s 43-yard pass to RJ Mobley cuts Central State’s lead to 27-21. The thieves jumped offside, but Latimer and Mobley took advantage of free play to get the rams close.
The central state benefits from another turnover rate
It can be very difficult for the Winston-Salem State to beat the seventh turn of the game overall.
Jalil Lenore’s faltering recovery led to the creation of a short field for Central State. A few plays later Brandon Kills threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Kenyadus Hollins to give the Mauraders a 27-14 lead. The bonus point is blocked.
Mauraders lead in the first half
Central State leads Winston-Salem State 21-14 in the first half
Rams Kicker Gobani Esparza’s attempt at 53 yards in the last game of the first half was short.
The central state regains the lead

In fourth and second, Caz Diaz scored for 3 yards to give the Thieves a 21-14 lead.
Central State led 60 yards in two plays to regain the lead.
Rams and thieves are back even
It is a brand new ball game.
The match went down early twice, and Winston Salem State tied the match to tie the match at 14-14.
Richard Latimer’s 23-yard pass to RJ Mobley completed an 11-game and 90-yard run for the Rams.
Rams get their pick 6
The game is not even 13 minutes and we already have two 6-second options.
This belongs to Justin Fleming of Winston-Salem. His 25-yard return for interception cuts Central State’s lead to 14-7.
Fleming has two objections. We saw five shifts in the first quarter alone.
A costly mistake for the state of Winston Salem
The fourth spin of the game proved costly to Winston-Salem State.
Anthony Mack’s 25-yard interception return for the touchdown increases Central State’s lead to 14-0.
Central State has been in the Winston-Salem Territory twice since the inaugural Twon Hines touchdown. The thieves ran the ball both times.
Dahgon McNeill also has a faltering recovery of the central state defense.
Twon Hines’ big comeback brings the Thieves down
that was quick.
Twon Hines of Central State returned the opening 81-yard start to the Winston-Salem State 4-yard line. Next, he got a 7-yard touchdown pass from Brandon Kellys.
The thieves took 31 seconds to snatch a 7-0 lead.
The central country will get the football first
