AP - Sports

CLINTON, S.C. (AP) -- Matt Johnson threw for three touchdowns and Kaliff Phillips ran for two more as Charlotte dominated Presbyterian in a 45-21 win on Saturday.

Presbyterian (1-3, 1-0 Big South) led 14-7 at the end of the first quarter, but after Phillips tied the game on a 1-yard run early in the second quarter, Charlotte never looked back. Dominating on the ground, the 49ers (3-2) scored 31 points before the Blue Hose, playing for pride, could score again.

Johnson was 15 of 24 for 269 yards passing, including a 3-yard TD toss to Austin Duke, a 53-yarder to Mikel Hunter and a 23-yarder to Trent Bostick. Charlotte amassed nearly twice as many yards rushing as Presbyterian - 236 to 131 - including a 1-yard scoring run by Alan Barnwell.

Demarcus Rouse had TD runs of 1 and 2 yards for Presbyterian. Quarterback Kaleb Griffin also scored on a 1-yard run.
