Concord takes 29-26 victory over Seton Hill

GREENSBURG, Pa. — Seton Hill led for much of the way, but dropped a 29-26 contest to visiting Concord Saturday afternoon.

The Griffins got on the board with 7:07 left in the first quarter when Andrew Jackson connected with Niko Hall-Brown for a 14-yard touchdown. After the failed extra point, the score remained at 6-0. SHU increased its margin to 13-0 when Jackson found Mike Allen for a 45-yard score at the 3:56 mark of the first quarter.

The Mountain Lions countered when Calvinaugh Jones rushed for a 16-yard score near the midway point of the second quarter.

 Jackson quickly answered, throwing his third touchdown pass of the first half when he found Lance Williams from 31 yards out. Up 20-7, the Griffins’ defense was unable to stop CU just before half. Ben Nester scampered in from two yards out, making it a 20-14 contest at halftime.

 Jackson went to work in the second half. With 12:06 to play in the third frame, he hit Allen for a 10-yard touchdown and a 26-14 advantage.

 Evin Dusold’s pass to Ansel Ponder pulled the Mountain Lions within five, 26-21, with 6:49 to play.

 Neither team managed to score again until the waning moments of the game. Darrick Williams hauled in a 10-yard pass from Dusold with 5:20 to play, allowing CU to complete the comeback.

 In the win, Dusold threw for 225 yards and two scores on 17 completions. Jones rushed for 123 yards and a score while Randall Hawkins hauled in six passes. Ponder caught four balls for 79 yards and a touchdown.

 For the Griffins, Jackson completed 22 passes for 265 yards and four touchdowns. Hall-Brown registered eight catches for 134 yards and a score. Allen had two touchdown receptions while Williams tallied one.

 Nate Pollard totaled 12 tackles in the win, eight of which were solo stops. Davon Marion tallied eight tackles, including six by himself. Ervin Moore had two sacks while Kevin Elliott returned an interception 41 yards.
