Mor­gan State shuts out Del. State, 12-0

Steven­son ends 5-game los­ing streak

Baltimore Sun Sunday - - SPORTS -

On a windy, rain-soaked Satur­day, Mor­gan State pro­tected a slim lead, played solid de­fense and ran the ball. Tracy Martin ran for a game-high 154 yards on 38 car­ries and scored the only points, help­ing the Bears grind out a 12-0 vic­tory over host Delaware State and stretch their win­ning streak to three games.

The Bears (5-3, 4-1) are in a tie for first place in the Mid-east­ern Ath­letic Con­fer­ence with Nor­folk State. MSU’S re­main­ing games are against Bethune-cook­man (Satur­day), Nor­folk State (Nov. 12) and Hamp­ton (Nov. 19).

The Bears recorded their first shutout since Oct. 7, 2006, when they posted a 32-0 win over North Carolina A&T.

Mor­gan State has won four of its past five, and the de­fense has not al­lowed an op­po­nent to score in the past seven quar­ters.

The ground game gained 289 of the Bears’ 314 to­tal of­fen­sive yards.

Travis David­son posted 90 yards on 12 car­ries, while An­drew King fin­ished with 47 yards.

Martin, a red­shirt fresh­man, put Mor­gan on the score­board when he raced into the end zone from 2 yards out with 4:43 left in the sec­ond quar­ter. The en­su­ing two-point con­ver­sion failed and the Bears led 6-0.

Martin scored on a 5-yard run early on in the fourth quar­ter (14:27) to bring Mor­gan’ lead to 12-0.

Ra­dio: C.J. Hop­son com­pleted two touch­down passes in the first half and the Mus­tangs de­fense held the Devils (0-8, 0-6 Mid­dle At­lantic Con­fer­ence) to one scor­ing drive per half.

The vis­it­ing Mus­tangs (2-6, 1-5) broke a five-game los­ing streak. Hop­son threw three touch­down passes and rushed 49 yards for a touch­down in the third quar­ter.

The host Rams (7-2) scored twice in the open­ing half and never trailed. Eric Do­bratz kicked a 35-yard field goal with 10:28 left and Kenny Wil­liams added a 7-yard touch­down run for a 10-0 Shep­herd lead with 6:10 left in the open­ing quar­ter.

Bowie State’s Budd Clifton rushed for a 6-yard touch­down with a 1:45 left in the first to pull the Bull­dogs (4-5) to within three, but the two teams traded scor­ing drives in the next two quar­ters. Shep­herd scored twice in the fourth quar­ter, in­clud­ing an 8-yard in­ter­cep­tion re­turn by D.J. Scott with a 1:17 left in the game to seal the win.

Joe Rollins rushed for 170 yards and the host Green Ter­ror (2-6, 2-5 Cen­ten­nial Con­fer­ence) halted a five-game los­ing streak.

Ward Udinksi led the Ea­gles (0-8, 0-7 CC) with 168 yards pass­ing and 77 yards rush­ing.

Mcdaniel scored first on a 14-yard touch­down pass from Nick Valori to Nick O’melia (F.S. Key) for a 7-0 lead with 4:07 left in the first quar­ter.

On the next pos­ses­sion, Ju­ni­ata drove to the 1-yard line, but Mcdaniel’s red zone de­fense kept it from scor­ing.

Shane Mc­sweeney was 16-for-22 with 233 yards and one touch­down through the air and ran for 80 yards and one score on the ground as the host Wolver­ines (7-1) handed the Sea Gulls (7-1) their first loss of the sea­son.

The loss marks the sev­enth straight to Welsey.

The Wolver­ines took a 7-0 half­time lead on a 2-yard touch­down run by Mc­sweeney at the 7:44 mark.

Sal­is­bury an­swered in the third with a 62-yard touch­down run by Ross Flani­gan, be­fore Wes­ley scored the next two touch­downs to pull away.

A week af­ter a 54-53 dou­ble-over­time vic­tory over Al­fred, the Bob­cats (4-4, 2-4 Em­pire 8) had the ta­bles turned against them. The host Bombers (4-4, 2-4) put to­gether two fourth-quar­ter scor­ing drives, in­clud­ing An­drew Ro­gowski’s game-win­ning 34yard field goal as time ex­pired.

Ro­gowski hit his first 34-yard field goal with 4:53 left in the first half for a 3-0 Ithaca lead. Frost­burg took the lead back in the third quar­ter on an 8-yard touch­down run by J.D. Hook and Bob­cats kicker Jonathan Adams hit a 25-yarder with 10:09 left in the game.
