Late Rally Not Enough for ASA in Loss to #5 Snow

Late Rally Not Enough for ASA in Loss to #5 Snow

HIALEAH, FL. - Austin Laszewski makes 30 yard field goal to cut Snow's lead to 37-29 with 7:50 remaining in the fourth quarter. 

That would be the end of ASA Miami's magical run to cut down a 23 point lead with 12:33 left in the third quarter. The Silver Storm's defense was impressive in the third quarter, forcing three take-aways against Snow College and another turnover on downs against the Badger offense. The issue for ASA was the inability to convert those turnovers into touchdowns, instead settling for three points. Laszewski made all three of his field goal attempts with a long of 36.

Yards came sporadically for ASA's offense throughout the game. ASA won the time of possession battle with Snow, but the Silver Storm offense would struggle on third down offensively against the Badgers, going 2-13.  Lloyd "Bam" Howard was the most consistent offensive option for the Silver Storm as Howard amassed 123 yards from scrimmage with two touchdowns. 

ASA had so many reasons to blame a potential blowout loss on Saturday to Snow, a team who's chasing a national championship this season. After Hurricane Irma, there were ASA student-athletes who had flown back home to be with their families and had only spent a few days practicing with the team leading up to this weekend's game. Coach Boden was disappointed that his team didn't come away with the win but was very pleased with the fight that his team showed against one of the best teams in the country. "After the last few weeks and all the obstacles we have had to overcome, I am really proud of this group. We now turn our attention to Georgia Military next week on the road."
