Concord edges UVA Wise for 1st win


Athens, WV


Concord picked up its first win of the season in thrilling fashion over rival UVA Wise.  The Mountain Lions got the winning score with 3 minutes left in the game when Jeremiah Johnson picked off a Brycen Lee pass and took it 36 yards for the game's lone score as they won 7-0.  With the victory, Concord improves to 1-2 on the season, and 1-2 in the Mountain East.

This was a game dominated by defense.  The Mountain Lions held the Cavaliers to just 285 yards total offense, with just 16 of that coming on the ground.  They forced 4 turnovers and had 10 sacks on the night.  The Cavaliers held Concord to just 131 total yards and 7 first downs.

Up next, Concord will travel to Notre Dame next Saturday.  Kickoff is set for noon.
