Billy Spalik's 1-yard dive in the third overtime lifted SUNY-Brockport to a 31-25 win over Frostburg State yesterday at Bobcat Stadium

The Bobcats (1-2) trailed 25-17 with 1:36 left, but forced overtime with an eight-play, 80-yard drive, capped by Tim Wilkins' 9-yard touchdown catch. Quarterback Grant Burrough passed to junior Tim Pearson for a two-point conversion to force overtime.

Brockport (3-1), winner of 24 of its past 26 regular-season games, was stopped on its first possession of overtime when junior Curran Oatts picked off Bob Darnley's pass. But Frostburg's Mark Menchetti missed a 43-yard field-goal try.

After Spalik scored in the third extra session, the Bobcats were stopped on fourth-and-five from the Golden Eagles' 20.

Salisbury 23, Greensboro 18: Senior running back Tony Ellis rushed for 176 yards and two touchdowns as the host Sea Gulls (4-0) remained unbeaten with a nonconference win over the Pride (1-2).

With his team trailing 6-0, Ellis capped a 75-yard drive with a 36-yard run just before halftime.

A 70-yard Ellis touchdown run in the third quarter and a 5-yard touchdown run by quarterback Dustin Johnson at 14:20 of the fourth quarter extended Salisbury's lead to 23-6.

McDaniel 37, Ursinus 14: The visiting Green Terror (3-1) used three second-quarter touchdowns -- by John Luster, Jason Hartman and Jemel Johnson -- to roll past the Bears (0-3)

Johns Hopkins 28, Carnegie-Mellon 7: Junior quarterback George Merrell rushed for a touchdown and threw for another to lead the host Blue Jays over the Tartans (2-2) at Homewood Field. The Blue Jays are 3-0 for the first time since 1967.

Morehouse 24, Bowie State 17: After taking a 17-14 lead in the third quarter on a 5-yard run by Julius Jordan, the visiting Bulldogs (3-2) allowed John Washington's touchdown run and a 37-yard field goal by Byron Archibald to lose to the Maroon Tigers (3-2) in Atlanta.
