Norfolk State foils Savannah State rally

By The Associated Press
NORFOLK, VIRGINIA -- Nico Flores found Xavier Boyce for a 35-yard touchdown pass on the final play of the first half, capping an 80-yard drive, and Norfolk State held on to defeat Savannah State 33-21 in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference game Saturday.

Javon Moore's 49-yard interception return had given Savannah State (1-8, 0-6) a 21-17 lead. The Tigers had scored 21 second-quarter points to overcome a 17-0 first-quarter lead by the Spartans (3-7, 1-6), but they were unable to score again.

Conley Smith's 2-yard scoring run in the third quarter, his third touchdown of the game, put Norfolk State ahead 30-21, and Everett Goldberg added a 47-yard fourth-quarter field goal.

Randy Maynes carried 32 times for 116 yards and Flores 14 times for 116 yards for the Spartans, who had 234 yards on the ground. Flores also completed 17 of 28 passes for 213 yards, with two interceptions.
