More news about: Shenandoah

EMORY, Va. – Homestanding Emory & Henry scored two touchdowns in the final 5:21 Saturday afternoon to escape with a 20-17 ODAC football victory over Shenandoah.

For Shenandoah (1-8, 0-6 ODAC), it is the second straight week that it victory slip through its collective grasp in the waning moments of the game.

With SU leading 17-7 following an Andrew Williams 22-yard field goal at the 6:09 mark of the fourth, the Wasps (5-4, 2-4) needed just three plays and 48 seconds to drive 57 yards get themselves back in it.

E&H moved all 57 those yards through the air, capping it with a 17-yard Kyle Boden to Corey Ware TD pass.

On the ensuing possession, Shenandoah was able to drive into Wasps territory, but was forced to punt after being faced with a 4th and 2 at the Wasps 48.

Emory & Henry again needed just three plays to get the game-winning score as Boden found Ware on a slant route and he took it 59 yards for the go-ahead score.

Shenandoah blocked the PAT, setting up a situation that a field goal could force overtime.

Unfortunately for the Hornets faithful, SU was unable to get closer than the 43-yard line before being forced to throw a Hail Mary pass on the final play of the game.

This pass was knocked down at the 5, ending the contest.

SU, which held the ball for 38:42, had 290 yards in total offense. Freshman Andrew Smith had 127 of this total on 33 carries.

Smith scored both of the Hornets touchdowns, blasting over from the 3 with 48 seconds remaining in the second quarter and from the 8 at the 10:40 mark of the third.

The drive that ended with the Williams was longest of the day for SU, as the Hornets held the ball for 11 plays and 6:09 before turning it over to Williams for the FG.

Emory & Henry had scored the game's initial touchdown on a Joe Vaughn 67-yard TD run.

Defensively, Jajuan Johnson and Tijun Findley both had six tackles and a forced fumble for SU.

Shenandoah completes its season next Saturday with a 1:00 contest at Washington and Lee.
