Gorillas Rally for 13-9 Mineral Water Bowl Victory

Updated:

EXCELSIOR SPRINGS, Mo. -- Jake Craig booted a pair of fourth quarter field goals and the Pitt State defense got a key fourth-down stop against Concordia-St. Paul with 3:05 remaining to propel the Gorillas to a 13-9 victory over the Golden Bears in the 2010 Mineral Water Bowl.

Concordia (8-4) jumped out to a 9-0 lead against Pitt State (6-6) thanks to a 51-yard field goal by Steven King and a 27 yard halfback pass from Sam Campbell to Charles Gilbert.

The Gorillas finally swung momentum to their favor late in the third quarter when Briceton Wilson capped a 14-play, 80-yard drive with a three-yard touchdown run, drawing Pitt State within two points, at 9-7, with 56 seconds remaining in the stanza.

Quarterback Zac Dickey broke loose for a critical 37-yard run on a 3rd-and-20 play from the PSU 10 yard line in the drive.

The Pitt State defense limited Concordia to just 49 yards of total offense in the second half, after the Golden Bears compiled 149 yards in the first two periods.

Craig bombed a 46-yard go-ahead field goal with 11:09 remaining to put Pitt State in front 10-9.

Seventeen seconds later, Pitt State's Nate Dreiling forced a Concordia fumble, giving the Gorillas the ball at the CU 48.

Nine plays, and four minutes of game clock later, Craig extended Pitt State's lead to 13-9 with a 36-yard field goal with 6:47 remaining.

Concordia moved the ball into Pitt State territory, but its seven-play drive stalled at the PSU 44 when quarterback Spencer Ohm threw incomplete for Gilbert on 4th-and-4. Kendall Davis broke up the play for the Gorillas with 3:05 to go.

Wilson and the Gorillas ran out the remainder of the clock, converting three first downs on the drive before running out the clock at the Concordia 9 yard line.

Wilson gained 78 of his game-high 93 yards in the second half to earn the Mineral Water Bowl Offensive MVP award. He carried the ball 21 times in the contest.

Dickey added 90 yards rushing on 15 carries, while Terrance Isaac rushed 21 times for 69 yards.

Dreiling recorded a game-high 16 tackles in the contest. He entered the game needing 16 stops to reclaim the national statistical lead in total tackles.

Johnny Row added 12 tackles with 3.0 TFLs, a fumble recovery and 0.5 QB sack to garner the MWB Defensive MVP award.

Ohm completed 13 of 25 passes for 73 yards, while Campbell rushed 15 times for 61 yards for the Golden Bears.

Pitt State improved to 2-0 in its Mineral Water Bowl appearances. The Gorillas posted a 35-27 victory over Bemidji State in the 2006 Mineral Water Bowl.
