Zimmerman Leads 17th-Ranked Indians Past 22nd-Ranked Bulldogs
Saturday, October 21, 2006 | by Indians' defense hold Bulldogs to one yard rushing.

NEWBERRY, S.C. - Tymere Zimmerman caught two touchdown passes and threw for another to lead the 17th-ranked Newberry College Indians to a 36-24 victory over the 22nd-ranked Wingate University Bulldogs on Saturday evening in front of a crowd of 3,914 at Setzler Field

Zimmerman finished the game with 10 receptions for 123 yards.  Josh Stepp completed 18-of-29 passes for 222 yards and three touchdowns.

The Indians (8-0, 4-0 SAC) jumped out to a 6-0 lead, scoring on their first drive of the game.  Stepp found Zimmerman for his first touchdown grab of the game on an 18-yard touchdown pass.

Wingate (6-2, 3-1 SAC) countered on their first drive, going up 7-6 when quarterback Anthony Metzelaars found David Jones for a 78-yard touchdown pass.

The Bulldogs extended their lead to 10-6 when Jonathan Beford connected on a 42-yard field goal late in the first quarter.  The Indians countered when Stepp found Corey Seawell open for a 37-yard touchdown to give Newberry a 13-10 advantage going into halftime.

Wingate scored a safety on a block punt in the endzone by Jones to cut the lead to 13-12 in the third quarter.  The Bulldogs, on their next possession, took a 18-13 lead when Marcus Davis rushed for a four-yard touchdown.

Just before the end of the third quarter, the Indians installed some trickery when Stepp threw a lateral pass to Zimmerman, who tossed a pass to Alex Haynes for a 22-yard touchdown to give the Indians a 19-18 lead.

After a 33-yard field goal from Lukshis made the score 22-18, Stepp and Zimmerman would hook up again on a four-yard fade route on third down to go up 29-18.

The Indians added another touchdown on defense to go up 36-18.  The snap back to Metzelaars in the shotgun went over his head and was recovered by Tony Ransom, who raced 14 yards into the endzone for a touchdown.

The Indians ran nine more offensive plays than the Bulldogs and controlled the clock with a time of possession advantage of 38:06 to 21:54.

The Newberry defense allowed only one-yard rushing in the contest.  Stewart Good paced the defensive unit with eight tackles, all solos.  Ransom had seven total tackles, a tackle-for-loss, and a sack to go along with his fumble recovery.

Metzelaars completed 22-of-42 passes for 303 yards and two touchdowns.  Dan Brooks led the receivers with eight receptions for 90 yards. 

The Indians will hit the road and face Tusculum College next Saturday at 1:30 pm.
