More news about: Stevenson

READING, Pa. - The Stevenson University football team scored 37 unanswered points and posted a second-half shutout as it opened Middle Atlantic Conference play with a 50-21 victory over Albright at Shirk Stadium Saturday afternoon.

FIRST QUARTER

  • Albright (0-3, 0-1 MAC) got on the board first, as a two-yard touchdown pass to Kyle Dickerson capped a nine-play, 57-yard drive to make it 7-0 with 7:49 left in the quarter.
  • A 71-yard run on Stevenson's (2-1, 1-0 MAC) first play of the ensuing drive by Titus Johnson tied things up.
  • The Lions engineered an 11-play, 61-yard drive to go up 14-7 at the 3:34 mark as Tony Thorpe rushed 11 yards.

SECOND QUARTER

  • An 11-yard keeper by senior quarterback Dan Williams 25 seconds into the second quarter pulled Stevenson within one, 14-13, as the snap was mishandled on the PAT try.  The scramble capped a nine-play, 45-yard drive, as the Mustangs started in Albright territory after a 41-yard kick return by Drexel Mosby.
  • Albright drove to the Mustang 2 on its next drive, but was stymied by the Mustang defense a rush was stopped for no gain by senior Brody Coleman on third down, and a fourth-and-goal pass was incomplete.
  • The Lions extended their lead to 21-13 with 4:17 left before intermission as a 22-yard pass from Jimmy Lehay to Zack Miller capped a seven-play, 45-yard drive.
  • A 42-yard pass from Williams to Chaz Lyles with 1:08 remaining made it a 21-19 game, as Stevenson's try for two was unsuccessful.
  • After Albright went three-and-out on its next possession, a 17-yard punt gave the Mustangs the ball at the hosts' 36 with 17 seconds to go.
  • Williams completed a 17-yard pass to senior Sebastien Vainqueur to get the Mustangs in field goal range, and sophomore Gavin Locklear booted a 36-yarder with one second to go to put Stevenson on top 22-21 at the break.

THIRD QUARTER

  • Stevenson started its first drive of the second half at midfield as Vincent Lee returned the opening kickoff 43 yards to the Albright 48.
  • On third-and-goal from the 2, Williams handed off to senior tight end Patrick Najmola for a touchdown run, capping an 11-play drive with 9:46 on the clock.
  • Junior Hanif Jones registered Stevenson's first pick-six of the season on Albright's third play from scrimmage, picking off Lehay and returning it 31 yards for the score and a 36-21 lead with 8:22 left in the quarter.

FOURTH QUARTER

  • A 43-yard completion to Lee with 13:23 to go pushed the Mustang lead to 22, 43-21, as the score finished off a six-play, 67-yard drive.
  • Albright drove down to the Mustang 32 on its next possession, but an interception by senior Mike Datu at the 20 gave the ball back to Stevenson with 10:56 to go.
  • On a drive that was extended by an Albright roughing the kicker penalty on a fourth down punt attempt at the Stevenson 29, Malcolm Amobi had a six-yard TD run to cap a seven play, 80-yard march with just under eight minutes left.

NUMBERS AND NOTES
