Running back Andrew Kase rushed for 146 yards and a school-record-tying four touchdowns in the first half to lead Johns Hopkins past host Juniata, 58-7, Saturday in Huntingdon, Pa.
The win is the third straight for the Blue Jays against Juniata and improves Hopkins' record to 6-2 overall and 5-1 in the Centennial Conference. Juniata slips to 1-8 overall and 1-6 in the Centennial.
With the win, Johns Hopkins head coach Jim Margraff notched his 125th career victory. Already the all-time winningest coach in school history with a 125-74-3 record, he is just the second college football coach in Maryland state history to win 125 games, after Eddie Hurt, who won 174 games at Morgan State from 1929 to 1959.
Kase sandwiched scoring runs of 5 and 7 yards around a 23-yard field goal by Alex Lachman in a seven-minute span in the first quarter to give the Blue Jays a 16-7 lead after 15 minutes.
The Blue Jays' defense forced three first-half turnovers, all of which were turned into touchdowns.
Virginia State 14, Bowie State 12: : The host Trojans (6-4, 4-3 Central Intercollegiate Athletic Conference) scored twice in the first and third quarters and held off a rally by the Bulldogs (5-5, 5-2).
The second straight loss puts Bowie State into a three-way tie for the CIAA Eastern Division title along with Elizabeth City State and Virginia Union. All three teams are 2-1 against common opponents Lincoln, St. Paul's and Virginia State, so the CIAA will hold a coin toss today for the right to face Western winner Fayetteville State on Saturday in Durham, N.C.
The Virginia State defense limited Bowie State to field goals by Michael Gagne of 27 and 29 yards. Ramono Flowers capped a three-play, 86-yard drive with a 2-yard touchdown run for the Bulldogs with 2:49 left to play. Flowers finished with 20 carries for 189 yards and a touchdown.
