BREVARD, N.C. - A stout defense and potent rushing attack helped the Newberry College Wolves' football team overcome a sloppy start and cruise to a 34-14 victory over the Brevard College Tornados at Memorial Stadium on Saturday.
Newberry scored five touchdowns without response after conceding an early score, rolling its record to 4-5 overall and 2-4 in South Atlantic Conference action with the win. Brevard is now 0-9 overall and 0-6 in league action.
For the first time since 2005, Newberry had multiple rushers go over the century mark in the same game. Dureal Elmore (Abbeville, S.C.) carried the ball 17 times for 127 yards, while Romelo Doctor (Summerville, S.C.) had nine carries for 103 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Newberry turned the ball over on its first three drives of the day, with the second of those resulting in BC's opening score, as fullback Jordan Ollis punched the ball in from a yard out to give the Tornados the lead at 7-0 with 7:11 remaining in the opening quarter.
The Wolves tied the game on Doctor's 27-yard touchdown carry with 11:16 remaining in the first half, and a 54-yard touchdown pass from Raleigh Yeldell (Johnston, S.C.) to tight end Ozzie Exume (Lawrenceville, Ga.) with 4:20 left in the second quarter would give Newberry a 14-7 halftime lead.
In the second half, Newberry fumbled the ball away on the opening drive, but held Brevard on a fourth down conversion to get the ball back. The Wolves then marched 69 yards downfield on 11 plays, with a 1-yard Yeldell touchdown carry pushing the lead to 20-7 after a missed PAT.
In the fourth quarter, the Newberry defense allowed Brevard next to nothing, while the offense salted the game away with a 31-yard touchdown carry by Doctor and a 13-yard touchdown pass from W.T. Murden (West Columbia, S.C.) to Troy Thompson (Orangeburg, S.C.). A late Brevard touchdown drive provided the final scoring of the day.
DEFENSE SHINES AGAIN
- The Newberry defense was fantastic yet again, holding Brevard to a paltry 246 yards of total offense.
- Brevard did not complete a pass, going 0-for-4 through the air with Arnez Gray (Greenwood, S.C.) intercepting a pass in the endzone late in the second quarter.
- The 14 points scored by the Tornados was their fewest this season and least since being shut out at Lenoir-Rhyne last October.
- Newberry collected four turnovers in the game. Defensive end Jaquille Oden (Spartanburg, S.C.) forced and recovered a fumble. Jalen Hunter (Seneca, S.C.) and Devine Kelly (St. George, S.C.) each forced fumbles, while Brett Borders (Goose Creek, S.C.) and Lance Richardson (Ware Shoals, S.C.) had fumble recoveries.
- Newberry dropped its average yardage allowed per contest down to 285.2 yards per game, which should put them in the top 10 nationally next week.
- With 0 yards passing allowed, Newberry's passing yardage allowed per game dropped to 119.7 yards per game, which will likely rank them first nationally when the rankings are released late Sunday.
RUSHING TANDEM SPOTLIGHT
- Newberry's tandem of Doctor and Elmore helped the scarlet and gray move the ball on a chilly day.
- The dual performance of over 100 yards by two Newberry players was the first since Alex Haynes and Josh Stepp did so at Morehead State on Septeber 10, 2005.
- It was the first time since the 2004 season opener against Concord in which two Newberry running backs both hit the century mark.
INSIDE THE BOXSCORE
- Zach Beaty (Myrtle Beach, S.C.) was Newberry's leading tackler with 10 stops. Hunter and Oden each had sacks in the contest.
- Three of Oden's tackles in the game were for losses.
- Newberry piled up 459 total yards on the day, with 274 on the ground and 185 through the air.
- All three Newberry quarterbacks played a part in the contest. Yeldell was 9-of-12 passing for 128 yards with a touchdown and an interception, while also carrying the ball six times for 22 yards and a touchdown.
- Murden was 4-of-8 passing for 30 yards and a touchdown, while Zach Blair (Lyman, S.C.) completed 3-of-4 passes for 27 yards.
- Newberry punter Kyle Clark (Beaufort, S.C.) continues to pin his opponents deep in their own territory. He averaged 37.7 yards per punt Saturday, with all three of his boots putting the Tornados inside their own 20-yardline. His punts at Brevard ended at the 9, 1 and 13 yardlines.
Newberry returns home for the final time this season on Saturday, November 8, hosting the Carson-Newman Eagles (6-2, 4-1 SAC) for a 2 p.m. kickoff. The game will be Senior Day, Military Appreciation Day and Church Day for the Wolves.
