Campbell Camels 10, Charleston Southern Buccaneers 34

The season continued rough for the Camels as they suffered their third straight loss. Early on it looked as if Campbell might make things interesting as they took a 10-7 lead into the half. Then Charleston Southern woke up in the second half with 27 unanswered points.

Davidson Wildcats 24, Virginia Military Institute Keydets 52

Davidson shared Campbell’s woes as they were blown out in Lexington, VA. VMI jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter and extended to 24-3 by halftime. They then scored twenty-one straight points in the third quarter, including one touchdown off of a blocked punt to put the game entirely out of reach. Davidson quarterback JP Douglas threw for 317 yards and David Rogers ran for 103 yards in the loss.

Western Carolina Catamounts 35 Catawba Indians 17

Western Carolina had less trouble with the team that blew out Davidson last week, Catawba College. The Catamounts rode the arm of Troy Mitchell to a 14-0 lead and then used Troy Mitchell’s legs to make the game 21-10. They finished off by having Detrez Newsome run for two scores in the fourth for a 35-17 win. The Western Carolina secondary had two interceptions on the game.

Charlotte 49ers 40, North Carolina Central Eagles 28

A tale of two halves. The 49ers scored forty straight points in the first three quarters. Kalif Phillips (2) and Maetron Thomas (1) each had touchdown runs. The defense also returned a fumble for forty yards. That might have discouraged some units, but the Eagles came alive in the fourth quarter to produce four touchdowns. Malcolm Bell had two touchdown passes and Jeremy Thompson picked off a pass and returned it to the end zone. The 49ers had two rushers over 100 yards, Phillips and quarterback Matt Johnson. Bell ended the game with 337 passing yards in the loss with Adrian Wilkins accounting for 129 of those.

    North Carolina A&T Aggies 17, Elon Phoenix 10

    It was not much of a bus ride for Greensboro’s Aggies to get to Burlington to take on the Phoenix. The result was an entertaining game that was not decided until the fourth quarter. Elon started the game with a field goal, but the Aggies answered by recovering a fumble and scoring 10 straight. Then it was Elon’s turn as the Phoenix held the Aggies scoreless over the second and third quarters while kicking three field goals to take the lead at 12-10. Tarik Cohen of the Aggies took over from there as the running back ran 81 yards to score the winning touchdown in the fourth quarter.

    Cohen had 234 yards on twenty carries and also had a touchdown pass early in the game.
