Davidson rallies then holds off Stetson in 35-28 win

DELAND, Fla. (AP) — Coy Williams scored three rushing touchdowns and Dylan Sparks’ 1-yard scoring run late carried Davidson to a 35-28 win over Stetson on Saturday.

Sparks’ scoring run ended a nine-play, 75-yard drive that took more than five minutes and left the Hatters with 3:31 to try and tie it.

In two drives sandwiched around a Davidson (3-1, 2-0 Pioneer Football League) punt, Stetson (2-2, 0-1) turned it over on downs and time expired on its final drive when the Wildcats defense held Stetson (2-2, 0-1) to 15 yards.

Stetson built a 21-7 lead late in the first half when Justin Agner threw a 41-yard scoring pass to Nazeviah Burris. Davidson responded with a 12-yard Williams touchdown run with 1:39 before intermission, he scored again from the 1 out of the break and Louis Colosimo threw a 14-yard scoring pass to Jackson Sherrard with 3:08 left in the third for 28-21 lead.

Agner connected with Burris again from 5 yards out with 8:46 left to knot it at 28-all. Agner threw for 287 yards and four touchdowns — all to Burris — who caught seven passes for 127 yards.
