WASHINGTON -- Sophomore Grant Burrough threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to junior Tim Wilkins in overtime to give Frostburg State a 30-27 win over rival Salisbury in the third annual Regents' Cup game yesterday before 2,240 at RFK Stadium.

The Bobcats, who concluded their season at 5-4 overall and 2-1 in the Allegheny Mountain College Conference, took a 24-17 lead into the fourth quarter, but the Sea Gulls tied the game on junior Tony Ellis' 3-yard run with 2:36 left in regulation.

Salisbury (4-6, 1-2) won the overtime coin toss, then settled for a 23-yard field goal by Paul Jacko.

The Bobcats ran just four plays before Burrough (C. Milton Wright) lobbed a fade to Wilkins (Mervo), who leaped over his defender and came down with the ball just inside the near sideline for the game-winning score.

Frostburg State got 115 yards rushing and one touchdown from senior DeNelle Hale (Dunbar). Burrough completed 17 of 30 passes for 179 yards.

Wilkins had eight catches for a game-high 105 yards, and sophomore James Plummer had a game-high 14 tackles, including three for a loss.
