Grinding out the clock

The fourth quarter of a close game is where the advantage of having a player like McLeod really shows. The Elis have gone back to McLeod over and over and the running back has not disappointed. The increased carries for McLeod have opened up the bootleg for Polhemus, allowing him to exploit the slow Tigers’ edge defense for first downs. With 4:13 left in the game, all the Bulldogs have to do is take another minute or so off the clock and kick a field goal to put the game out of reach.
