The Cincinnati Enquirer

KALAMAZOO, Mich. - Bryan Hamrock scored the only offensive touchdown for Mount St. Joseph in a 21-19 victory over Kalamazoo (0-2) on Saturday.

Mount St. Joseph (3-0) led 14-13 at the half after B.J. Adams returned an interception 30 yards and Jeff Williams blocked a punt for the Lions' second touchdown.

Hamrock's score put Mount St. Joseph up 21-13 in the third quarter and the Hornets could not catch up.

Wittenberg 35, Thomas More 31

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio - Ryan Holmes threw four touchdown passes, including a 4-yarder to Eric Kubilus with 34 seconds left.

Holmes' late TD pass capped a 13-play, 87-yard drive that ate 2 1/2 minutes off the clock.

Wittenberg (1-1) trailed 31-21 with 8:49 remaining, but on the second play from scrimmage after a punt Tristan Murray took a short swing pass and raced 63 yards for a touchdown.

After a drive extended by a roughing the kicker call, Thomas More (1-2) had to punt, the Tigers starting their fateful drive at their own 13. Holmes completed 19 of 36 passes for 303 yards with one interception. Murray finished with 105 yards on 18 carries, with one TD reception and one scoring run.

TMC's Tyran Thompson carried 18 times for 97 yards and a touchdown. Yale 24, Dayton 17

DAYTON, Ohio - Rob Carr rushed for 172 yards and the decisive fourth-quarter touchdown as Ivy League Yale held off Dayton (2-1). Carr, who carried 37 times, scored on a 2-yard run with 10:45 remaining to cap a 90-yard drive. The Elis (1-0) ran on 12 of the 13 plays.

Dayton took over at its own 22 with 40 seconds left and with no timeouts remaining. Brandon Staley completed four consecutive passes to advance the ball to the Yale 15 with 10 seconds left.

Staley then took the snap and was pressured, scrambled and eventually tried to lateral the ball to a teammate after time expired, but the Elis recovered.

Wilmington 17, Muskingum 5

NEW CONCORD, Ohio - Jon Bednarek kicked a school-record 51-yard field goal, and Wilmington held Muskingum to 87 yards of total offense in the Ohio Conference opener for both teams.

Chad Otte had two interceptions and Taylor Clark one for the Quakers (1-1), who held Muskingum (0-2) to seven first downs while totaling six sacks and limiting the Muskies to minus-8 yards rushing on 26 attempts. Bednarek's 51-yard kick tied it in the second quarter.
