DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- Colby Walden returned a kickoff 85 yards for a touchdown with 1:23 remaining to lift Jacksonville past Dayton 21-17 Saturday in the Pioneer Football League opener for both teams.
Dayton started its final drive at its own 15 and got to the Dolphins' 34 before throwing four incomplete passes, the last two in the final 7 seconds.
Although the Flyers outgained Jacksonville (3-1) in total offense 388 yards to 252, the Dolphins made up for it with big plays. With Dayton leading 10-0 early in the second half, Andre Addison picked off a Bardo pass and ran 43 yards for a score.
Kade Bell's longest pass of the day, a 22-yarder to Andrew Robustelli, gave Jacksonville a 14-10 halftime lead.
