The nationally-ranked St. John Fisher College football program
won its Empire 8 Conference season-opener for the
10th consecutive year on Saturday, as the Cardinals rallied in
the fourth quarter to earn a 38-35 win over visiting Frostburg
State University on Saturday at Fisher's Growney Stadium.
With the win, Fisher, ranked No. 19 in both the latest D3football.com and AFCA poll, improves to 4-0 for the third time in the last four years, while Frostburg falls to 1-3.
Fisher's Ryan Kramer totaled 293 all-purpose yards, including 187 on five kickoff returns. Fisher enjoyed great field position throughout the day with five of its six touchdown-drives starting inside Bobcat territory.
Fisher enjoyed a 31-20 lead going into the fourth quarter, but the Bobcats rallied, marching 70 yards on nine plays with Antonio Wood scoring on a 12-yard pass from Ken Emmons with 12:32 left. Just 1:16 later – after Fisher lost a fumble at its own 40 – the Bobcats came right back and made it 35-31 with Mike Fourth scoring on a 6-yard run.
