Mountain East Roundup: Concord falls to Bowie State 16-10

Bowie State 16, Concord 10

BOWIE, Md. — Concord's late comeback attempt fell short as the Mountain Lions dropped their first decision of the season falling 16-10 at Bowie State. The Mountain Lions had the ball at the Bulldog nine yard line on the last play of the game, but the pass attempt in the end zone was incomplete.

Concord (2-1) held advantages over Bowie State in first downs (16-9), total yards (266-208) and passing yards (175-42).

Quarterback Brian Novak was 22-of-47 for 175 yards, while also adding 25 yards and a touchdown on the ground. CU was led defensively by Keith Furgason who registered a career-best 10 tackles in the game and Riyahd Richardson who intercepted his second pass in as many games. 

Glenville State 31, Fairmont State 14

GLENVILLE — Glenville State opened at home in style with a 31-14 win over Fairmont State on Thursday night at I.L & Sue Morris Stadium. The Pioneers (1-2, 1-1 MEC) needed to erase a 14-13 halftime deficit and do so shutting out the Falcons in the second half.

Rahmann Lee racked up over 200 yards on offense with 164 yards and two touchdowns on the ground to go with three catches for 74 yards. Quarterback Sean Steel was 14-of-29 for 209 yards and one touchdown.

Devin Cain led GSC with six total tackles, including 2.5 going for a loss. 

Fairmont State's Garrett Davis had eight total tackles and also scooped a fumble and returned it 85 yards for a touchdown for the Falcons (1-2, 0-2 MEC). FSU was held to just 131 yards of total offense.

Shepherd 28, Urbana 21

SHEPHERDSTOWN — Shepherd's stingy defense held off the potent Urbana offense and out-lasted the Blue Knights, 28-21, on Saturday afternoon at Rams Stadium.

The Rams (3-0, 2-0 MEC) built a 21-6 halftime lead but needed Allen Cross touchdown plunge with just over four minutes left to break a 21-21 tie. Cross finished the game with 25 carries for 114 yards.

Urbana (1-2, 1-1 MEC) quarterback D.J. Mendenhall was 27-of-54 for 349 yards and three touchdowns and one interception. However, the Blue Knights could not muster much on the ground rushing only 14 times for 20 yards.

Donnie Kelley led the Rams on defense with seven total tackles. Phillip Rhoden added four tackles and an interception for SU.
