Cats catch a break on Senior Day

by Jeff Patterson

iii: krmucxrkriiiii

Shane Boyd heaved up one last prayer.

The Hail Mary wobbled in the air forev-

UK junior receiver Glenn Holt and Van-
derbilt cornerback Dominique Morris wres-
tled in the back of the end zone. waiting for
the ball.

Watching from his backside. after Vandy
defensive end Lamar Divens rushed Boyd to
the ground, the UK senior quarterback saw
the celebration.

Somehow. Holt made the 25-yard, game-
winning catch with 1:39 left.

The catch led UK to a 14-13 win over Van-
derbilt Saturday on Senior Day in front of
55,278 fans in Commonwealth Stadium. The
win ended UK's seven-game losing streak.

The Cats (2-8, 1—6 Southeastern Confer-
ence) acted as if they had just won the con-
ference title. instead. they stayed out of its
cellar. putting Vanderbilt (2-8. 16 SEC) back
in it.

As the pass spun end over end toward
the end zone. many of the Cats winced on
the sideline.

“The ball was kind of a wounded duck,“
Holt said.

“If I had a shotgun l Would have shot it."
UK head coach Rich Brooks said of the ball.

0n the other sideline. Vanderbilt players
and coaching were thinking interception.

“I thought we were going to have a have
a chance to sack him and he just flung down
there toward the end zone." said Vanderbilt
head coach Bobby Johnson. “The last thing
I saw was Dominique jumping. That's all I

But Holt owed Boyd a big play. He
promised him one earlier in the game. and
Holt delivered by pulling in the ball and
keeping both feet in bounds.

“He told me he was going to make a play
before the end of the game." Boyd said. “I
saw everybody jumping up so I knew some-
thing good had happened."

Holt finished with nine catches for 87
yards and two touchdowns

Vanderbilt built a 70 lead in the first
half on a l-yard run by Jeff Jennings. But
each team mirrored the other.

Vandy quarterback Jay Cutler. who com-
pleted 16 of 32 passes. couldn't connect with
receivers. Boyd and redshirt freshman An-
dre Woodson also had trouble early

UK junior kicker Taylor Begley missed
two field goals. Then. V'andy's Patrick John-
son had one blocked by Lonnell [)ewalt. and
later he missed an extra point early in the
second half.

Trailing 13-0 early in the fourth quarter.
Holt’s first touchdown helped keep a dwin-
dling crowd in the game.

On the first play of the quarter. UK ju-
nior running back Arliss Beach ran 52 yards
on a fake reverse. Boyd threw a T-yard
touchdown strike to Holt in the left corner
of the end zone five plays later.

pass into the end zone to Holt. but Vandy's
Bill Alford broke it up.

need to play it conservatively.

s fourth-quarter comeback against Vanderbilt on Saturday.

"I was going for the win. not two field
goals." Brooks said. “I didn‘t want to see an

quick possession on Vandy‘s next drive.
Boyd flung up the 25-yard game-winner

“Maybe we were due a little good for-

was like before.

enced what we finally experienced." Boyd
said. “Chips haven‘t always fallen our way."
