Blue team shuts down Red team, 53-33, in Spiders’ Spring Game

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The Richmond Spiders defense was way ahead of the curve Saturday afternoon taking on the offense in the annual spring game.

The defense, called the Blue team for score keeping, tallied two sacks, one interception, two forced fumble recoveries and limited the offense to a meager 53 yards rushing.

Rising junior Kyle Lauletta gave up the interception, but did finish 16-of-22 for 197 passing yards and two touchdowns.

Rising senior outside linebacker Omar Howard, a Midlothian High School grad., had four tackles and a pass break up. He also set the tone for the entire spring game with a first play blast on Jarmal Bevels running and catching a Lauletta pass in a crossing route.

The Spiders will hold one final closed practice this coming Thursday before summer break.
