HALF: Offense stopped seven times; UW defense leads, 21-3, at Spring Game

Spring Game scoring grid: Offense scores on field goals (3), touchdowns (6) and PATs (1/2). Defense scores on drive stops (3), turnovers (6) and TD (7).

The Spring Game started with a three-and-out by quarterback Keith Price at the first-string offense - and it kept going from there through the first half.

Except for a 17-yard reception from Jesse Callier on a trick play, Price looked uncharacteristically off in his four first-half drives in the passing game.

The quarterback's reception down the left sideline did set up a 37-yard field goal by walk-on placekicker Erik Northstein, out of Graham-Kapowsin High School, with 13:32 remaining in the second quarter for the offense's only scoring.

So far, Price is 4-for-12 for 36 yards - with half of his completions to running back Bishop Sankey. Standouts Kasen Williams and Austin Seferian-Jenkins have been held without a catch.

Backup quarterback Derrick Brown has surprisingly looked a bit sharper than Price in his four drives, although he has no scoring to show for it. He was 9-for-16 for 67 yards - with four of his passes going to Joshua Perkins (40 yards).

Sacks have been registered by Drew Schultz, Alec Kimble and Corey Waller, all of Brown on the final drive of the first half.

In eight drives, the UW offense has racked up just 140 total yards.
