The Series: Christopher Newport leads 11-0

Last Season's MeetingSenior linebacker Allen Stallings broke a single game school record for tackles with 26 as the Greensboro College football team gave USA South leading Christopher Newport a major scare.  The Pride jumped out to an early 7-0 lead and rallied back from a 27-10 deficit late but came up short by a final score of 27-22.  Trailing 27-16 in the fourth, Greensboro attempted an onside kick that was recovered by Christopher Newport.  However, a penalty gave The Pride another attempt, allowing Rahmel Workman to come up with the ball for Greensboro and set up another scoring opportunity.  Unfortunately, The Pride were unable to convert, turning the ball over on downs.  The luck turned on the Captains next drive, as The Pride recovered a fumbled hand off with 1:16 to play.  Greensboro needed just three plays to cover 33-yards and capatilize on the mistake as Throndset hit Dexter Russell Jr. for a 14-yard touchdown with 52 seconds to go.  The two-point conversion failed, leaving the score at 27-22.  The Pride attempted another onside kick, but the ball fell into the hands of a Christopher Newport player.  The Captains were able to run out the clock and put an end to Greensboro's upset hopes.
