More news about: Bridgewater

BRIDGEWATER, Va. – Freshman kicker John Griggs punched in a 33-yard field goal midway through the fourth quarter to break a 14-14 deadlock and the Bridgewater College defense got a late hold as the Eagles moved to 3-0 on the season with a 17-14 victory over the visiting Shenandoah Hornets in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) opener.

The win marked head coach Michael Clark's 120th career victory.

Both teams locked up in a classic defensive slugfest but Shenandoah (1-3, 0-1 ODAC) used a bit of trickery to get into Bridgewater territory early in the first quarter. With a fourth and two at their own 40, Hornets punter Cory Gay faked the punt and threw a 32-yard strike to Sean Blackman to push Shenandoah into Bridgewater territory.

Bridgewater's (3-0) defense pushed the Hornets back and forced a turnover on downs to keep the game scoreless midway through the opening frame.

The Eagles used the momentum from the defensive hold to go on a nine play, 66 yard scoring drive to take a 7-0 lead late in the first. Bridgewater's scoring drive was capped off by a 27-yard strike from junior Willie Logan to sophomore wide receiver Tyler Moneymakeron a big fourth-down conversion.
