Robinson’s FG lifts FSU

Bobcats march 93 yards in 14 plays to win 36-33

FROSTBURG — Freshman Isaac Robinson booted a 19-yard field goal with three seconds left to propel Frostburg State to a 36-33 victory over Case Western Reserve on Saturday at a rainy and windy Bobcat Stadium.

The Bobcats (1-2) picked the perfect time to post their longest drive of the season as they marched 93 yards in 14 plays to setup Robinson's game-winner.

Junior Michael Fourth ran for 27 of his career-high 185 yards, but the biggest play of the drive came on fourth-and-11 at the Case 34. Junior Ken Emmons scrambled to his right and found sophomore Haydan Roberts, who broke away from a defender up the home sideline for a 30-yard reception to the Case four. Following timeouts by both teams, Robinson made the game-winning kick.

The Spartans (1-2) answered a pair of Frostburg third-quarter touchdowns early in the fourth when Billy Beecher found the end zone from a yard out just five seconds into the final stanza that knotted the contest at 33-33.

Case Western led 26-20 at halftime.

FSU retook the lead at the start of the second half when it quickly moved 65 yards on four plays for a score at 13:50 of the third quarter. Fourth capped the drive with a one-yard touchdown.

On the ensuing possession, Bobcat sophomore Salaman Riddell intercepted a Beecher pass at the Case 38 and two plays later, Emmons connected with junior Antonio Wood for a 22-yard touchdown.

The victory marks the second-consecutive offensive explosion for the Bobcats. FSU posted 567 yards of offense and 29 first downs, while five of the Bobcats’ six scoring drives covered at least 50 yards. Frostburg ran for 281 yards and tacked on another 286 through the air. The Bobcats have averaged 588 yards of offense over the last two weeks.

Fourth finished with 210 all-purpose yards to lead both teams. He added two receptions for 25 yards on to his impressive 185 rushing yards on 35 carries.

Emmons had another outstanding day in the pocket, throwing for 286 yards hitting 14-of-23 attempts with three touchdowns. He tossed a pair of scores to sophomore Myles Burgess in the second quarter that helped Frostburg rally from a 17-6 deficit. Burgess finished with four receptions for 123 yards and two touchdowns.

Case Western finished with 295 rushing yards, led by Ricky Hanzlik’s 105 yards on 20 carries. Erik Olson threw for 111 yards on nine completions with one touchdown.

FSU junior Rowan Pinkett posted his second-straight game with 15 tackles. Sophomore Marcus Moody made 11 stops, while junior Keith Smith added 10.

Frostburg State has a bye this Saturday before traveling to St. John Fisher on Saturday, Oct. 5, for the Empire 8 opener for both schools. Kickoff is at 1 p.m.
