Gold squad wins Ga. Tech spring game

ATLANTA (AP) - Backup quarterbacks Justin Thomas and Tim Byerly led the Gold squad to a 22-10 win Friday night over starting quarterback Vad Lee's White squad in Georgia Tech's spring game in front of about 5,000 frigid fans in Bobby Dodd Stadium.

All three quarterbacks ran well, and struggled to pass in a scrimmage dominated by defenses -- especially the Gold's collection of starters. Several starters on both sides of the ball did not play because of injuries or because they're mending from surgeries.

Lee, a redshirt sophomore, rushed eight times for 62 yards and completed 4 of 11 passes for 34 yards and an interception. He also lost a fumble that was returned 34 yards for a touchdown by Gold linebacker Quayshawn Nealy.

Thomas, a redshirt freshman, rushed 13 times for 26 yards and a score. He completed 3 of 7 passes for 35 yards with an interception. Byerly added an 11-yard scoring run late in the third quarter.
