Maryville defeats Christopher Newport 30-17

The Maryville College Fighting Scots football team used a strong rushing attack to claim a 30-17 USA South road victory over Christopher Newport University on Saturday evening in Newport News, Virginia.

 

MC's offensive line cleared the way for 292 rushing yards on 56 carries against a Captains defense that was nationally ranked against the run. The Scots' defense allowed only 13 first downs on 175 total rushing yards.

 

Maryville got on the scoreboard in their first possession when Trenton Shuler blasted through the middle for a 19 yard scamper. The score capped a six play, 77-yard drive in the first two minutes of the game. Wes Bloeme's kick gave MC the 7-0 advantage.

 

CNU answered with a ling 11-play, 72 yard scoring drive on their first offensive set. Storm Parker found the end zone from three-yards out to tie the game 7-7.

 

Maryville went three-and-out and was forced to punt. A poor punt put CNU in striking distance. MC's Daniel Robinson stepped up to record his third interception in the past two games to turn away the Captains.

 

As the first quarter wound down, MC's Evan Pittenger found Ed Johnson for a completing on the CNU 16 yard line. The clock expired and the score remained tied at the end of the first quarter with Maryville threatening.

 

Travis Felder promptly put the Scots ahead with a four-yard TD burst capping a seven play, 65 yard drive. Bloeme's kick made the score 14-7.

 

Maryville's defense held the captains to three plays on their next possession and the Scots' Deshijon Whitlock would explode for over 40 yards on MC's next possession. As the Scots pushed down the field on a nine-play, 78 yard scoring drive, Shuler found the end zone once again from four yards out. The conversion was good and the Scots led 21-7.

 

MC's defense answered the call once again on CNU's next possession. As the Captains were moving down the field, Maryville held the home team to a 37 yard field goal by Mason Studer.

 

With just over five minutes remaining before the half, Maryville marched down the field 59 yards on 15 plays. Wes Bloeme connected on a 27 yard field goal and the Scots went to the half with a 24-10 advantage.

 

At the half MC's defense held CNU to 88 rushing yards while the Scots dominated the line of scrimmage for 200 rushing yards.

 

CNU took the second half kick-off and marched down the field 70 yards on their first possession. Paul Dukes found daylight and dashed 17 yards for a Captains touchdown. The kick made the score 24-17.

 

MC was forced to punt on their next possession, but Logan Winders pinned the Captains inside their own six yard line with a great punt. CNU went three-and-out and the field possession flipped.

 

The Scots converted a pair of third down conversions on their next possession but relied on Bloeme once again to connect on a 22 yard field goal. With 2:26 left in the third quarter, Maryville led 27-17.

 

MC's defense forced CNU to punt at midfield to begin the final quarter. As the Scots offense spluttered, Logan Winders connected on a 53 yard punt to pin the Captains deep in their own territory. A Josh Krebs quarterback hurry forced another three-and-out by the Captains and MC would look to capliatize.

 

Maryville marched down the field 53 yards on 13 plays, including a key 4th down reception by Blake Williams to allow Bloeme to hit his final field goal of the evening. Bloeme's 27 attempt made the score 30-17.

 

Maryville's defense, including a sack by Josh Krebs, did not allow the Captains to gain any further momemtum.

 

CNU fell to 4-2 on the season and 1-2 in USA South action.

 

Maryville (6-1, 4-0 USA South) was paced by Travis Felders 126 yards on 23 carries. Trenton Shuler scored a pair of touchdown while piling up 74 yards on 11 carries. Deshijon Whitlock added 47 yards on seven carries. Quarterback Evan Pittenger was 10-for-20 for 132 passing yards. His favorite target was Ed Johnson who hauled in six passes for 90 yards. Jared Miller and Blake Williams each had a pair of receptions for a total of 42 yards. MC's defense was led by Dylan Wolfenbarger with 10 total tackles.
