MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) — Coy Williams rushed for 137 yards and a touchdown and Dylan Sparks ran for 122 yards and two scores — including a 61-yarder — as Davidson took over sole possession of first place in the Pioneer Football League with a 29-22 victory over Morehead State on Saturday.
Morehead State used Andrew Foster’s 20-yard field goal in the first quarter and his 49-yarder with 10:46 left in the second to take a 6-0 lead. Davidson (6-1, 5-0) didn’t get on the scoreboard until Williams’ 61-yard run with 3:39 left in the first half. After the Wildcats defense forced a three-and-out, Louis Colosimo directed a 10-play, 64-yard drive that culminated with his 8-yard TD toss to Lucas Raber with 15 seconds left in the half. Morehead State (5-3, 4-1) blocked Caden Bonoffski’s extra-point kick, Tyler Noble ran it all the way back and the Eagles trailed 13-8 at halftime.
Morehead State regained the lead 15-13 on Mark Pappas’ 17-yard TD toss to Devonte Adams midway through the third quarter, but Bonoffski kicked a 35-yard field with 50 seconds left and the Wildcats never trailed again. Williams had a 32-yard TD run early in the final quarter and Sparks scored on a 14-yard run with 4:48 remaining to stretch the Wildcats’ lead to 29-15.
Eli Turner Jr. ran for 97 yards on just 10 carries as the Wildcats piled up 397 yards on the ground.
