An exciting game was negated because of two key stops?

    Forgive me for being picky, but the game no longer was exciting because of a pair of key fourth-down stops?

    I'm sorry, but I don't think "negated" means what the writer thinks it means.

    The Wildcats defeated the Red Raiders 44-38 in front of 51,450 at Snyder Family Stadium thanks to a pair of key fourth-down stops in the second half. They negated an evening otherwise full of explosive plays.

    It's not clear who "they" are. The Wildcats? The Red Raiders? The 51,450? The Snyder Family?

    And I don't think "excited" means what you think it means.

    If the game was that excited, I hope it didn't have an accident.

    Please contact your doctor for an excited that lasts four hours or more.

    As being one of the 51,450 in attendance, I can tell you it was very exciting from kick to horn.
