VIDEO: Football shuts out Southern Virginia
The Salisbury University football team earned its sixth-straight win, all of which have come in New Jersey Athletic Conference play, on Saturday, October 21, topping Southern Virginia University 42-0. The Sea Gull defense controlled the day again, holding the Knights to just 126 yards of total offense – the lowest total allowed by a Salisbury defense since limiting the Apprentice School to 125 yards in the season opener during the 2011 season. Tom Montag led the Sea Gull defense with eight tackles… While Dakarai Ellis had four tackles, two and a half for loss, forced a fumble, and broke up a pass in the end zone. The Salisbury offense was paced by senior quarterback Brandon Lewis, who rushed for three touchdowns, getting in from 4, 6, and 21 yards out, and passing for one score, finding Damien King down the right sideline for a 19-yard strike. Blake Joppy scored from 1 yard out and Brian Hammond scored on a reverse in the fourth quarter to close out the scoring. Salisbury will be back in action at Sea Gull Stadium next Saturday, October 28, when the Sea Gulls host Rowan University beginning at 1 p.m.
