Everyone wanted to be part of history in the making and the fans packed out the 15,000 seat Jerry Richardson stadium. A bold turnout for a team that had never been tested but the 49ers didn’t disappoint the fans! The opposing team the Campbell Camels won the coin toss to receive the ball but didn’t keep it very long with a quick interception that turned into a touchdown on the second play. The 49ers started the football game with the right momentum and never loss their momentum either scoring 4 touchdown, two field goals, and even making one two point conversion all before half time! The defense perform equally as strong holding the Campbell Camel to only one touchdown that was questionable at best.
The football game slow down slightly after the half as the second string 49ers entered the game but the domination continued. Two more field goals and one more touch down completely unanswered by the Camels to make the final score 52-7. The fans rushed the field to congratulate the Niners on a historical victory. Couch Lambert at the press conference was slightly lost for words and lost in the moment to believe what really just happened. The players all gave credit to each other and thanked all those that had came together to make UNC Charlotte football a reality. We should all give the football players and their couches credit for the sportsmanship and teamwork they displayed on that momentous day.
