September 23, 2001|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Quarterback Kernis Faison hit Mike Bryant in the left corner of the end zone for a 38-yard touchdown with 37 seconds remaining to give host Bowie State a 16-13, come-from-behind win over previously undefeated West Virginia State yesterday.

The touchdown put the exclamation point on a great day for Bryant, who blocked two punts, the second of which led to the Bulldogs' first touchdown - a 3-yard run by Daniel Leo.

Bryant's game-winning catch was set up by wide-out James Johnson, who wrestled the ball away from two defenders on fourth down to keep the Bulldogs' winning drive going.

After the Yellow Jackets (2-1) took a 7-2 lead on the strength of Hollis Lewis' 27-yard touchdown pass to Loren Tribbett, the Bowie defense took over. For the game, the Bulldogs held the Yellow Jackets to 123 yards total offense.

Western Maryland 35, Ursinus 9: Thanks to a huge effort from the defense and special teams, the host Green Terror (3-1, 2-0) overcame an injury to quarterback Boo Harris and a third-quarter rally by the Bears to gain the Centennial Conference victory.

Trailing 14-0 at halftime, Ursinus posted nine straight third-quarter points in just over two minutes.

Mike Geneas, who scored on a 30-yard interception return to give the Terror an early lead, also blocked a punt to set up a Green Terror touchdown.

Western Maryland blocked three punts in the game, two of which led to scores.

John Luster, who replaced Harris, who has a hamstring injury, was 7-for-15 for 65 yards and a score.

Greensboro 22, Salisbury 16: Tim Lewis rushed for 114 yards and a touchdown and Josh Daniels sealed the Pride's home win by sacking Sea Gulls quarterback Mac Mollet and recovering the fumble.

The Sea Gulls (1-3) had possession of the ball longer and outgained the Pride (2-1), but lost four fumbles.

Jacob Smith picked up one of the fumbles and ran it back 25 yards for a touchdown at 11:57 of the second quarter.

SUNY Brockport 45, Frostburg State 13: Seth Thomas rushed for a season-high 141 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Golden Eagles (3-1) to a blowout victory over the visiting Bobcats (1-1).

Freshman quarterback Bob Darnley also had a big day for the Golden Eagles as he completed 15 of 22 passes for 160 yards, including a 2-yard touchdown pass to Chad DeRock that opened the scoring.
