08_FB_ECSU_10

SALISBURY, NC -- Senior Jamelle Cuthbertson (Charlotte, NC/Harding HS) ran for 156 yards and two scores to lead Catawba to a 24-10 win over visiting Brevard in South Atlantic Conference football action on Saturday afternoon at Shuford Stadium and Kirkland Field.  The win improves the Catawba Indians to 5-4 overall and 3-3 in the SAC, while the Tornados fall to 1-8 and 0-6.  Cuthbertson also moved over 2,000 yards in his career with the Indians.

Catawba scored first on a 31-yard field goal by Thomas Trexler (Wilmington, NC/New Hanover HS) midway through the first quarter.  Brevard answered with a 24-yard kick from Chase Henry Franklin, NC).  Cuthbertson would break the first play from scrimmage after the Brevard field goal 69 yards for a score and a 10-3 lead with 20 seconds left in the opening quarter.  It was the longest run in the senior’s career.

The Indians would take a 17-3 lead to the half on a 26-yard reverse pass from Brandon Bunn (Virginia Beach, VA/Fork Union) to Grayson Downs (Mt. Pleasaent, NC/Mt. Pleasant HS) with just 52 seconds left before the break.  That pass play would be the longest by either team on the day.  Cuthbertson finished the first half with 123 yards, marking the sixth time he has reached the plateau this season to tie Andre Marshall’s school record.

Catawba’s Terrence Jones (Rockingham, NC/Richmond Senior HS) blocked a Tornado punt late in the third quarter to set the Indians up at the Brevard 11-yard-line.  A play later, Cuthbertson scored his second touchdown for a 24-3 lead with 4:06 left in the quarter.

Brevard got on the board with 10:05 remaining as Desmond Wilson (Mt. Holly, NC) capped a nine-play, 45-yard drive with a three-yard-run.  The Tornados would get the ball back twice, but had possessions end on fumbles caused by Marqus Davis (Charlotte, NC/N. Mecklenburg HS) and Terrence Porter (Roanoke Rapids, NC/Roanoke Rapids HS).

Cuthbertson accounted for 156 of Catawba’s 256 total yards.  Brian Terwilliger (Wilmington, NC/New Hanover HS) added 50 yards on the ground.  Catawba completed 4-of-13 passes for 30 yards.  Brevard went 3-for-12 through the air for 19 yards, while Donald Hudson (Augusta, GA) had 52 yard on the ground.  Wilson totaled 49 yards and Trey Wilborn (Acworth, GA) 48 rushing.

Catawba held Brevard to just 202 total yards and had three sacks.  Freshman Lakeem Perry (Luoisburg, NC/Louisburg HS) recorded 15 tackles, including two for losses.  Charles McAfee (Charlotte, NC/Vance HS) had eight stops and a sack.  Salonik Amos (Grovetown, GA) had 10 tackles for Brevard.
