Turnovers Costly for Football in 27-20 Loss at UNCP
PEMBROKE, NC -- Catawba fell to host UNC Pembroke 27-20 in football action on Saturday night at Johnson Stadium. The Braves improve to 4-1, while the Catawba Indians fall to 3-2.
Down 24-17, Catawba drove inside the UNCP 10-yard-line midway through the final quarter, but were held and then missed on a field goal try. On the next Indian possession, BJ Sherrill (Cleveland, NC/W. Rowan HS) was stripped on a sack and the Braves added a field goal by Connor Haskins.
Catawba got a late field goal and recovered an on-side kick attempt with 20 seconds left. After a completion to the UNCP 40-yard line, Sherrill was intercepted on the final play.
Sherrill threw for 371 yards, seventh best in school history, on 32-of-52 passing with the two scores. Nate Charest (Charlotte, NC/Butler HS) and Jarrid McKinney (Charlotte, NC/Providence HS) each went over 100 yards in receiving. Charest had 11 catches for 108 yards, while McKinney added 10 receptions for 178 yards.
Catawba scored first, using a 40-yard kickoff return by LJ McCray (Charlotte, NC/Harding HS) to set in good field possession. Sherrill capped the drive with a 23-yard pass to Diante Hodges (Fayetteville, NC/Smith HS).
UNCP responded with 17 unanswered points to go on top 17-7. Michael Isbell ran in from four yards out and Elliott Powell from 15-yards to give the Braves their edge at the 9:35 mark of the second quarter. Chad Hollandsworth (Kernersville, NC/E. Forsyth HS) pulled Catawba within 17-10 at the break on a 28-yard field goal.
Powell opened the second half with a 97-yard run on the first play from scrimmage to up the lead to 24-10. Late in the third quarter, Sherrill tossed an 11-yard pass to Charest to close the gap to 24-17.
Bobby Morrison (Statesville, NC/W. Iredell HS) led Catawba on the ground with 67 yards. The Indians out-gained UNCP 464-316 in total yardage, but lost three fumbles and had the interception. Powell ran for 139 yards and two scores for the Braves. Jonathan Efird completed 17-of-23 passes for 130 yards. UNCP did not have a turnover.
