BOWIE STATE ROUTS LINCOLN (PA) LIONS 45-9


LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, Pa. – Bowie State spoiled the Homecoming for Lincoln University of Pennsylvania, routing the Lions 45-9. The victory snaps a Bowie State two-game slide and improves the Bulldogs record to 5-4 overall (2-4 CIAA).

Senior Tyrae Reid, Jr. completed 16-of-28 passes for a team-high 238 yards and two touchdowns. Senior Douglas McNeil, III led the Bulldogs receivers with a game-high 112 yards on four catches and redshirt freshman James Brown added 43 reception yards on four catches. Junior transfer Corwin Acker led the Bulldogs on the ground with 74 rushing yards (six carries) and a touchdown. Defensively, the Bulldogs were led by redshirt freshman Curtis Pumphrey with nine total tackles, one interception and three pass breakups.

Lincoln quarterback Doug Cook threw for a game-high 276 yards, completing 24-of-49 passes and one touchdown. Cook was intercepted twice and sacked twice in the loss. Matt Coston hauled in nine passes for a team-high 109 yards.

Bowie State scored the games’ first points of the afternoon, when redshirt sophomore Mario Diaz-Aviles booted a 29 yard field goal at the 3:26 mark of the first quarter for a 3-0 Bulldogs lead. Lincoln used a 7-play, 72 yard drive to tie the game at 3-3 on a 22-yard field goal by Kyle Jaski with 47 seconds left in the opening period.

With 13:36 left in the second quarter, Bowie State senior Ridwan Cole caught a screen pass from Reid an ran 22 yards down the Bulldogs sideline for a touchdown. Diaz-Aviles added the extra point for a 10-3 lead. Pumphrey returned a Lincoln punt 68 yards to push the Bulldogs lead to 17-3. The Bulldogs increased the lead to 24-3 on a 1-yard touchdown run by senior Ramono Flowers.

Lincoln’s Doug Cook connected with Kester Lewis on a 15 yards pass and catch with one second remaining in the first half, trimming the Lions deficit to 24-9.

Lincoln (1-8, 1-5 CIAA) fumbled the opening kickoff of the second half and promptly took advantage of the Lions miscue with BSU’s Acker rumbling 33 yards to paydirt. Diaz-Aviles added the extra point, extending the Bowie State lead to 31-9 at the 14:06 mark of the third quarter.

The Bulldogs defense comes through again on Lincoln’s very next possession, as junior Quentin Walker picked off a Cook pass and returned it for a 19 yard Bowie State touchdown, giving the visitors a 38-9 stronghold.

Reid found a streaking McNeil for a 48 touchdown to end the third quarter, padding the Bulldogs lead at 45-9.
