The football wasn't more than a few feet away from Tyler Jenny when it was evident he wanted it back in his hand. He could only stand in place on his own 31-yard line as he saw his second pass of the last Saturday's game against Albright intercepted.

The Lions' Chris Stephens was running the other way with the football and Jenny stood, hands on his hips in disbelief. Lycoming has made a habit of early turnovers this year, so the disbelief wasn't in how Stephens could intercept the pass, but in how could the Warriors turn it over again?
