More news about: Randolph-Macon

ASHLAND, VA - Quarterback Austin Faulkner threw a career-high five touchdown passes as Randolph-Macon topped visiting Shenandoah 42-14 Saturday afternoon in college football action. R-MC is now 3-0 for the first time since 1986, while Shenandoah drops to 0-3 on the season.

Three of Faulkner's scoring strikes came in the first half as the Yellow Jackets jumped out to a 28-0 lead, scoring on all four, first half possessions. The Yellow Jackets held the ball for 22:37 of the first stanza, scoring on a nine-yard run by Thaddeus Scruggs on the opening drive of the game and then getting TD receptions from Dan Crouch (17 yards), Zack Midulla (3 yards) and Crouch from one yard out with just 15 seconds remaining in the half.

For the game, Faulkner finished 25-of-32 with 267 yards to go along with the five touchdown tosses. Earl Peoples caught 17 passes from Faulkner for 170 yards and two second-half scores. Crouch finished the day with four grabs for 49 yards. Scruggs helped the Jackets ground game gain 173 yards, with 91 yards on 21 carries.

R-MC rolled up 25 first downs, 440 yards of offense and logged 40:15 of possession in the win. Randolph-Macon ran 77 plays on the day to Shenandoah's 46 and scored on all six trips to the Red Zone.

The Yellow Jackets defense held SU to just 143 total yards, including just 72 through the air. The Hornets were just 3-of-11 on third down on the afternoon. Trey Haddon had a team-high seven tackles, including two behind the line of scrimmage. Ian Candelaria had five stops, including a sack for R-MC.

SU got on the board after its first drive of the second half, when Keone Kyle capped off a 65 yard drive with a one-yard plunge to make the score 28-7.

Two fourth quarter touchdowns by Peoples extended the R-MC lead to 42-7, before Daniel Wright found Brian Calloway from 22 yards out to close out the scoring, making it 42-14, with 1:22 to go in the game.

Randolph-Macon will be back in action next Saturday at home when it hosts Frostburg State at 1:00 p.m.
