Wol­ford mar­shals Wake For­est troops

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

Wake For­est at­tached a pos­i­tive end­ing to a sea­son marred by a spy­ing scan­dal, us­ing a gutsy per­for­mance by quar­ter­back John Wol­ford to beat heav­ily fa­vored Temple 34-26 in Tues­day’s Mil­i­tary Bowl.

Af­ter throw­ing an in­ter­cep­tion on the open­ing se­ries — a turnover Temple turned into a 7-0 lead — Wol­ford helped the De­mon Dea­cons rat­tle off 31 straight points be­fore half­time.

Wol­ford left with a neck strain in the third quar­ter with the score 31-17. Wake For­est (7-6) then with­stood a come­back bid by Temple (10-4) to se­cure its first win­ning sea­son since 2008.
