More news about: Thomas More

(WAYNESBURG, Pa.) - The 23rd-ranked Thomas More College football team fell, 14-10, to Waynesburg University today (Saturday, September 22, 2012) in a Presidents' Athletic Conference (PAC) game at John F. Wiley Stadium in Waynesburg, Pennsylvania.

With the loss, the Saints fall to 1-2 overall and 1-1 in the PAC.  With the win, the Yellow Jackets improve to 4-0 overall and 2-0 in the PAC.

Waynesburg led 7-0 after one quarter.  The game was tied 7-7 at halftime and Thomas More led 10-7 after three quarters.

The Yellow Jackets took a 7-0 lead at the 8:12 mark of the first quarter when Bertrand Ngampa scored on a two-yard run and Alex Henry added the point-after-attempt.

Thomas More tied the game at 7-7 when sophomore running back Landon Savoy (Radcliff, Ky./John Hardin) scored on a 10-yard run and junior place kicker Tim Gormly, Jr. (Cincinnati, Ohio/McNicholas) added the PAT with 10:30 to play in the second quarter.

In the third quarter the Saints took a 10-7 lead on a Gormly 21-yard field goal with 7:33 to play in the quarter.

Waynesburg scored the eventual game-winning touchdown with 6:44 to play in the fourth quarter when Willie Leavell blocked a Thomas More punt and returned it 18-yards for a touchdown and Henry added the PAT to make the score 14-7.

Senior defensive back Zach Autenrieb (Cincinnati, Ohio/Elder) led the defense as he had five solo tackles and two interceptions, which he returned for a total of 62 yards.  The two interceptions gives him 27 career interceptions and he is two shy of the NCAA Division III record of 29.
