Morehead State tops Campbell, 45-36

Builes Creek, N.C. — Morehead State defeated the Campbell Camels, 45-36, on Saturday for its second straight Pioneer Football League victory of the season.

Offensive presence was scarce early on, as the score was knotted at 0-0 after the first quarter. But, just a few minutes into the second quarter, Campbell's Keith Goss found the end zone to give the Camels a 7-0 lead. Nearly 30 seconds later, MSU's Brandon Bornhauser scampered into the end zone for a 6-yard score.

With 27 seconds left in the first half, MSU found itself tied with Campbell at 14-14 before the Eagles' Luke Boyd kicked a 44-yard field to put MSU up 17-14 at the intermission.

The Eagles received the ball to start the second half and it didn't take long to find the end zone for a third time in the game.

With just less than 12 minutes to go in the third quarter, MSU freshman quarterback Austin Gahafer found Mason Rutherford for a 16-yard score to put the Eagles ahead 24-14.

On the following offensive series, Gahafer found Kitaro Lewis for a 44-yard touchdown.

In the final quarter, the Eagles and Camels took turns scoring with the final score resulting in a 45-36 MSU victory.

Bornhauser led MSU with two rushing TDs and a receiving score. Gahafer completed 26 of 34 passes for 334 yards.

MSU improves to 2-4 on the season, and 2-1 in the PFL. The Eagles will enjoy an off week before visiting Valparaiso on Oct. 19.
