JOPLIN -- John Brown broke loose for a 27-yard run on a key third-down play and three plays later Pitt State punched in the game-clinching score in a 26-14 victory over Missouri Southern in the Sonic Miner's Bowl Saturday (Nov. 10).

The Gorillas end the season 7-3 overall and 7-3 in the MIAA, while the Lions wrap up the year at 6-5 overall and 6-4 in MIAA action.

Pitt State led 20-14 facing 3rd-and-5 at the MSSU 30 when Brown took the direct snap from center and scooted upfield for the key first down to the MSSU 3.

Jason Spradling scored three plays later on a one-yard run with 2:33 to play in the game.

Brown also caught three passes for 72 yards, passing Ronnie West for the all-time Pitt State receptions record. He ends the season with 124 receptions for 2,189 yards.

The Gorillas took a 10-7 lead at halftime, but the Lions quickly drove the ball down the field in four plays to open the third quarter and grab a 14-10 edge.

Pitt State wasted little time to land its own counter-punch, driving 90 yards in six plays. Luke Rampy broke loose on a 44-yard run to give the Gorillas a 17-14 lead with 10:21 to play in the third period.

Connor Frazell, who booted a 28-yard field goal with 11 seconds to play in the first half, added a 22-yard field goal for a 20-14 edge with 2:01 remaining in the third period.

The Gorillas totaled 371 offensive yards, including 299 rushing yards in the contest. The Lions rushed for 216 yards and compiled 253 total yards.

Ne'Ronte Threatt rushed 11 times for a game-high 144 yards and two touchdowns for Southern. Briceton Wilson had 14 carries for 80 yards for Pitt State.
