Richmond Times-Dispatch Weekend - - Sports - From staff and wire re­ports

LYNCH­BURG — Corbin Jack­son leaped just high enough to get his right hand up to block a 23-yard field goal at­tempt as time ex­pired to se­cure Lib­erty’s 42-41 win over In­di­ana State on Satur­day night.

It ap­peared Lib­erty (3-0) had won when In­di­ana State’s Cade Sparks threw in­com­plete on fourth down with 1:04 left in the game, but Lib­erty had called time out and the Sycamores got an­other chance from Lib­erty’s 48.

Sparks re­sponded with three straight com­ple­tions, set­ting up Jerry Nunez to boot the game win­ner. But Jack­son got the block.

Robert Mor­ris 23, VMI 0: Jimmy Walker passed for 291 yards and three touch­downs to help the Colo­nials beat the visit­ing Key­dets.

The Robert Mor­ris de­fense forced three turnovers and lim­ited VMI to 182 yards.

Walker hit War­ren Robin­son for a 39-yard gain and then, af­ter a short run by Har­ri­son Dre­her, con­nected with Bran­don Magee on a 23-yard pass to make it 7-0 with 13:35 left in the first quar­ter.

VMI fell to 0-3.

Hamp­ton 59, Livingstone 0: Yah­kee John­son rushed for 132 yards and three touch­downs, Aulden Knight had 106 re­ceiv­ing and two scores and Hamp­ton blanked visit­ing Livingstone.

Hamp­ton re­mained per­fect in 10 meet­ings against the Divi­sion II Blue Bears (0-3) af­ter hold­ing Livingstone to just 105 yards of­fense.

John­son av­er­aged 11 yards on his 12 car­ries, in­clud­ing a 73-yard scor­ing run.

Knight av­er­aged 21 yards on his five re­cep­tions, in­clud­ing a catch good for 51 yards.

The Pi­rates (2-1) spent most of the first half in Livingstone’s end of the field, start­ing only one of their five open­ing-half touch­down drives in their own ter­ri­tory. Two of the drives be­gan af­ter in­ter­cep­tions by Ra­heim Huskey and Bren­dan Cole.

Wis­con­sin-Plat­teville

38, Ham­p­den-Syd­ney 29: Alec Cobb had 317 yards pass­ing and four touch­downs as Ham­p­den-Syd­ney out­gained visit­ing Wis­con­sin-Plat­teville, but three lost fum­bles doomed the Tigers as the Pi­o­neers came back on two dif­fer­ent oc­ca­sions.

Ham­p­den-Syd­ney (1-2) started fast on of­fense, as Cobb found Cam John­son twice on the Tigers’ first two of­fen­sive drives, and later hit Ma­jor Mor­gan twice in the se­cond quar­ter on con­nec­tions that gave Ham­p­den-Syd­ney a 29-21 half­time lead.

But the Tigers left the door open on mul­ti­ple oc­ca­sions for the Pi­o­neers (2-0) to get back into the game with fum­ble trou­bles.

The Pi­o­neers took a 14-13 lead early in the se­cond quar­ter on the heels of a Ham­p­den-Syd­ney fum­ble as Wy­att Thomp­son rum­bled into the end zone on a 19-yard run.

The se­cond half was all Wis­con­sin-Plat­teville, and af­ter Tyler Blang found Zack Rap­pel on a 32-yard touch­down to cut the lead to 29-28, Michael Pratl con­verted a 24-yard field goal af­ter an­other Ham­p­den-Syd­ney fum­ble that gave the Pi­o­neers the lead for good.

Catholic 25, Ran­dolphMa­con 20: The Yel­low Jack­ets outscored the host Car­di­nals by 14 in the se­cond half, but it wasn’t enough to over­come a 19point half­time deficit.

Quar­ter­back Ale­jan­dro Ros had two of his three touch­down passes in the first half for Catholic (2-1) as it went into half­time with a 19-0 lead.

Eric Hoy put Ran­dolphMa­con (2-1) on the board with a 1-yard run in the third quar­ter. Quar­ter­back Joe McBride had two touch­down passes in the fourth quar­ter as the Yel­low Jack­ets cut their deficit to 5 with 2:18 left. But Ran­dolph-Ma­con never got the ball back, and Catholic held on.

Win­ston-Salem State 21, Vir­ginia Union 20: The visit­ing Rams held the Pan­thers out of the end zone in the se­cond half.

Win­ston-Salem State (2-1) struck first with a touch­down pass from

Rod Tins­ley to Darren Dowdell. But Vir­ginia Union’s La­va­tiae Kelly re­turned a blocked punt 60 yards for a score, and Dar­ius Tay­lor rushed for a 9-yard touch­down to give the Pan­thers (1-2) a 14-7 lead, which they car­ried into the break.

Vir­ginia Union man­aged only two Jef­fer­son Souza field goals in the se­cond half, how­ever, and rush­ing touch­downs by Ker­rion Moore and Tins­ley car­ried the Rams to the win.

Bridge­wa­ter 52, Ap­pren­tice 0: Led by Mali­vai Barker’s 134 rush­ing yards and two touch­downs, the Ea­gles im­proved to 3-0 with a win over the Builders (1-2), out­gain­ing them 436-211 in a home win.

Ho­bart 56, Shenan­doah 30: Hay­den Bauser­man con­tin­ued his strong start for the Hor­nets (2-1), with 303 yards pass­ing and four touch­downs, but the States­men (2-1) used 368 rush­ing yards to dart past Shenan­doah for a home win.

Frost­burg State 33, Christo­pher New­port 30: K.J. Kearney passed for 319 yards and four touch­downs, but the Cap­tains (2-1, 1-1 NJAC) couldn’t stop the Bob­cats’ rush­ing at­tack as Frost­burg State (3-0, 2-0) amassed 162 yards on the ground.

Averett 19, Fer­rum 7: Tyriek Able picked off Zack Clif­ford and ran the in­ter­cep­tion back for a 71-yard touch­down, B.J. Robbins re­turned a punt 57 yards for a score, and the visit­ing Cougars (1-2, 1-0 USA South) de­feated the Pan­thers de­spite gain­ing just 99 yards of to­tal of­fense.

Clif­ford passed for 191 yards for Fer­rum (2-1, 0-1), and Brian Mann added 114 yards rush­ing.

Washington and Lee

24, Claremont-Mud­dScripps 14: Walker Brand rushed for 154 yards and two touch­downs, Josh Breece added 47 yards and a score, and the visit­ing Gen­er­als (2-1) out­ran the Stags (1-1) to win their se­cond straight game.

Maryville 56, Emory & Henry 46: Kevin Sax­ton passed for 239 yards and a touch­down, and the Wasps’ (1-2) rush­ing at­tack ac­counted for four rush­ing touch­downs.

But it wasn’t enough as the Scots (2-1) crushed the Emory & Henry de­fense for 586 yards of to­tal of­fense in a shootout vic­tory in Emory.

Mont­clair State 24, South­ern Vir­ginia 0: Ryan Adz­ima passed for three touch­downs, as the Red Hawks (1-1, 1-0 CAC) blanked the Knights (0-3, 0-3) in Buena Vista.
