CORAL GABLES, Fla. –The second scrimmage of #CanesCamp was expected to be a barometer for the Hurricanes, now only two weeks away from their 2012 season opener at Boston College. Unfortunately for head coach Al Golden and his staff, the team’s intrasquad scrimmage was cut short in the middle of the second quarter due to lightning in the area.

Less than a week after their first scrimmage, Saturday’s orange versus white match-up was less situational and more action-packed. Artificial crowd noise was pumped through speakers during every drive, signature third down music was played to rattle the offense, and referees enforced penalties on both sides to ensure the scrimmage on the Greentree Practice Fields replicated the intensity of a real game.

Though offensive playmakers impressed in the first scrimmage, standout defensive performances from both the first and second team were the story during Saturday’s abbreviated action. Touchdown runs from Mike James and Duke Johnson, along with a sack in the endzone by Kelvin Cain for a safety, gave the white team a 16-0 lead before the lightning alarm sounded.

After clearing the field and waiting nearly an hour for the lightning detector signal, the scrimmage was cut short by the coaching staff. The Hurricanes return to the field Mon., Aug. 20, for Day 16 of #CanesCamp.
