Waynesburg visits FSU in Bobcats’ home opener

Game begins at 1

FROSTBURG — Waynesburg visits Frostburg State this afternoon for the Bobcats home opener.

Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.

This will be the first meeting at Bobcat Stadium since 2006. The last game, a 21-7 Waynesburg victory, was at Waynesburg last season.

Waynesburg leads the overall series 28-12-1 and has won the last three.

Over the last 29 years the Bobcats are 21-8 in home openers, including a six-year winning streak from 1998-2002. FSU has currently won each of its last two home openers scoring a total of 100 points. The last time the two teams met in the home opener for Frostburg State, Waynesburg escaped with a 13-7 win in 1979.

Off to a fast start a week ago, freshman Janai Billips ran for a team-high 68 yards on 10 carries in the second half, including a long run of 19 yards. He also hauled in two passes for 19 yards.

Frostburg State offense used a pair of quarterbacks in the season-opening 47-3 loss at Geneva. Junior Ken Emmons and sophomore Teron Tyre combined to throw for 117 yards on 13 completions.

Frostburg finished with 248 yards, including 131 rushing.

Defensively, junior Keith smith made a game-high 11 tackles, including 10 solo stops and one tackle for loss. Junior Rowan Pinkett was second with eight.

Waynesburg opened with a thrilling 21-17 victory over Muskingum on Saturday.

With 23 seconds remaining and the Yellow Jackets trailing 17-14, junior quarterback Carter Hill brought his offense to the line looking to keep a possible game-deciding drive alive. After taking the snap at the Muskingum 23-yard line, Hill dropped a short pass off to junior Bernie Thompson, who slipped a tackle, kept his balance and righted himself before sprinting to the end zone for the game-winning 77-yard touchdown.
