NC State beats UNC in OT on Gal­laspy’s 5th TD

The State (Sunday) - - Sports -

Reg­gie Gal­laspy II ran 1 yard in over­time for a touch­down, his school­record-ty­ing fifth TD, and North Carolina State beat North Carolina 34-28 on Satur­day in a ri­valry game marred by a fight in the end zone af­ter it ended.

Gal­laspy II rushed for a ca­reer-high 129 yards and scored on runs of 1, 4 and 34 yards be­fore scor­ing the ty­ing TD from 5 yards out in reg­u­la­tion. Ryan Fin­ley was 16 of 28 for 200 yards for the Wolf­pack (8-3, 5-3 At­lantic Coast Con­fer­ence).

Fresh­man Cade Fortin, whose only snap since Oct. 13 was a last-sec­ond heave two weeks ago against Duke, put North Carolina up 28-21 with a 1-yard touch­down run with 9:29 left. He fin­ished 19 of 40 for 276 yards with a 37-yard touch­down pass to Beau Cor­rales, Javonte Wil­liams had an 8-yard TD run and Free­man Jones kicked two field goals for the Tar Heels (2-9, 1-7).

But Jones was wide left on a 37-yarder in over­time. N.C. State then ran the ball on seven straight plays, capped by Gal­laspy’s plunge into the end zone that ended it. Some push­ing and shov­ing in the end zone af­ter the win­ning score led to a quick but in­tense melee in which play­ers from both teams were seen throw­ing punches.
