MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP)—Lanny Funsten caught two touchdowns late in the fourth quarter to clinch the comeback victory for Davidson over Morehead State 17-10 in Pioneer League play on Saturday.
Trailing 10-3 with less than 10 minutes remaining in the game, the Wildcats (2-4, 2-2) went on an 8-play, 87-yard drive that ended with a 25-yard touchdown pass from Jonathan Carkhuff to Funsten. A missed extra point kept the Eagles (2-4, 1-2) in front 10-9 with 5:36 left.
After a stop by Davidson’s defense, the Wildcats regained possession on their own 17-yard line looking for the go-ahead score.
Carkhuff threw a 71-yard touchdown pass to Funsten on the fourth play of the drive to give the Wildcats a 15-10 lead. Carkhuff then hooked up with Funsten on a two-point conversion attempt to put Davidson up 17-10 with 2:15 left in the fourth quarter.
