NEWBERRY – Newberry College quarterback Raleigh Yeldell threw for five touchdowns as the scarlet and gray rolled to a 41-7 victory over the Brevard Tornados at Setzler Field on Saturday.

Newberry moves back to .500 at 4-4 overall and 2-3 in South Atlantic Conference action, while Brevard falls to 0-8 overall and 0-4 in the league.

The Tornados scored first after a 43-yard reverse set up a 2-yard touchdown carry by quarterback Tyler Gregory with 8:08 left in the opening quarter.

From there, it was all Newberry. Senior Ryan Barnwell capped off a 10-play, 66-yard drive with a 4-yard touchdown carry to tie the game at 7-7 with 11:55 remaining in the second quarter.

With 2:55 left in the second quarter, Yeldell found a leaping Darius Clark in the endzone for a leaping 18-yard touchdown to give Newberry a 14-7 lead with 2:55 left in the half, and Yeldell’s 3-yard scoring pass to Jalen Cook with 7 seconds to play in the half gave Newberry a 21-7 halftime advantage.

On the opening drive of the second half, the Wolves faced third-and-11 near midfield before Yeldell found Cook for a 51-yard catch and run touchdown to push the lead to 28-7.

Newberry scored touchdowns on its next two drives to put the game far out of reach, as Yeldell connected with Troy Thompson from 18 yards out and with Braxton Ivery from 11 yards out to put the wraps on a runaway win.

  • The air raid numbers overshadowed the fourth consecutive game of over 100 yards rushing for Romelo Doctor. He had 16 carries for 118 yards for an average of 7.4 yards per carry.
  • This was the first time Newberry had a quarterback pass for over 250 yards, a receiver have over 100 yards and a rusher have over 100 yards since the trio of Josh Stepp, Tymere Zimmerman and Alex Haynes in the 2006 Carson-Newman game.
