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.
