This past weekend DSU hosted Georgetown football team at Alumni Stadium. The game started out fast-paced as DSU scored twice. Sy’Veon Wilkerson scored the first touchdown with an 11-yard run. On the next drive, Tylik Bethea threw a 14-yard touchdown to Jerrish Halsey.
Georgetown’s first touchdown came in the last seconds before halftime when Joseph Brunell threw a 17-yard touchdown to Ser Portobanco to make the score 14-7. When Georgetown came back on the field after halftime, Quarterback Joseph Brunell threw another touchdown. This time it was a 36-yard touchdown to Camero Crayton with 9 minutes left in the third quarter. This touchdown tied the game 14-14.
Georgetown’s head coach Rob Sgarlata said, “Joe did a great job with finding open receivers and the offensive line played a great game.” He also said, “going into the game I told them to keep to things in mind; play with effort and have fun”.
Georgetown defense held DSU’s offense to 0 points for the remainder of the game and forced an overtime. In overtime, DSU received the ball first and started their drive down the field.
DSU was able to get into field goal range but unfortunately got their field goal blocked. This created a perfect opportunity for the Hoyas to win their first game of the season.
The game ended with Georgetown’s running back Joshua Stakely running in a 5-yard touchdown for the win. Senior defensive back,Ahmad Wilson, said their defensive game plan was to “stop the run early” and, “when we blocked their field goal that gave us the confidence that we won this game.”
DSU will travel to Johnson City, TN next weekend to play East Tennessee State University on the 18th at 7:30.
