Lauer leads the way in Drake’s 28-17 win over Dayton

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Drew Lauer had 28 carries for 140 yards and two touchdowns to lead Drake to a 28-17 win against Dayton on Saturday.

Drake (4-2, 3-1 Pioneer Football League) has won four of its last five, and the Bulldogs defense has surrendered just 13.4 points a contest over that stretch.

Richie Warfield put Dayton on the board first with a 1-yard plunge before Lauer ended a five-play, 69-yard drive with a 2-yard TD run to tie it at 7. Joseph Bruni’s 22-yard field goal with 9:55 left before halftime marked the last lead for the Flyers.

Grant Kraemer threw a 6-yard TD pass to Steven Doran just before halftime, and with 3:32 left in the third, Kraemer connected again with Doran on a 2-yard scoring pass for a 21-10 lead. Lauer carried it in from 12 yards out early in the fourth for an 18-point lead. Doran finished with 93-yards rushing on six carries.

Jack Cook paced Dayton (3-4, 2-2) with 194 yards passing.
