The Lenoir-Rhyne Football Team (1-1) picked up its first win of the 2013 season with a 34-18 victory over Davidson (0-2) Saturday evening at Richardson Stadium.
L-R rushed for 419 yards while limiting Davidson to just 18 yards on the ground to go along with six quarterback sacks in the win.
Offensively, Lenoir-Rhyne junior quarterback Miles Freeman (Sacramento, Calif.) finished with 89 yards passing and 87 yards rushing to go along with one touchdown through the air and one on the ground in the victory.
Lenoir-Rhyne led at halftime by a 17-12 score highlighted by junior running back Jarrod Spears' (Bunnlevel, N.C.) 98-yard kickoff return for a score and a 47-yard touchdown reception by redshirt freshman running back James Phillips (Carrollton, Ga.). The kickoff return for a touchdown was the second for Spears in his career.
L-R put the contest out of reach with junior fullback Isaiah Whitaker's (Salisbury, N.C.) seven-yard touchdown run with 11:24 remaining in the contest for a 31-12 advantage. Whitaker led all rushers with 105 yards.
Davidson's quarterback, Jonathan Carkhuff (Marietta, Ga.), passed for 374 yards and three scores despite the loss. Reese Williams (Abilene, Texas) was Carkhuff's top target, finishing with eight catches for 106 yards and a touchdown.
Davidson's William Morris (Dallas, Texas) added a game-high 119 yards receiving and a touchdown but the Wildcats could not get any closer than 13 points in the fourth quarter in the setback.
On defense, L-R senior defensive back Myer Nolan (Atlanta, Ga.) led the Bears with nine tackles while senior defensive lineman Jimmy Long (Gainesville, Va.) added two sacks and a blocked extra point for Lenoir-Rhyne.
Lenoir-Rhyne returns home to face Wingate in its South Atlantic Conference opener on Saturday night at 7:00 p.m., at Moretz Stadium. Davidson, meanwhile, plays Johnson C. Smith in Charlotte, N.C., next Saturday at 2:00 p.m.
