Big plays spark Furman to 24-14 victory over The Citadel


GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — Furman used two big plays in the first quarter to grab a quick lead and never looked back in a 24-14 victory over The Citadel in Southern Conference play. The Citadel used a Furman turnover to take a 7-0 first-quarter lead. Marquise Blount forced a Jace Wilson fumble that was recovered by the Bulldogs’ Saul Diaz at the Furman 31-yard line. Four plays later Jaylan Adams scored on a 1-yard run. It took three plays for Furman (4-2, 2-1) to get even _ a Wilson-to-Ryan Miller scoring strike covered the final 58 yards. After The Citadel turned the ball over on downs at the Paladins’ 10-yard line, Dominic Roberto raced 90 yards for a TD on first down for a 14-7 Furman lead with 1:56 left in the opening quarter.
