McCloud scores twice, Savannah St wins 1st, 23-3

By The Associated Press

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Jaylen McCloud ran for two touchdowns and Savannah State won its first game, 23-3 over Charleston Southern on Saturday night.

McCloud's 5-yard run with 1:17 to play wrapped up the win. It was a two-play, 12-yard drive after Charleston Southern turned the ball over on downs.

A 3-yard run by D'Vonn Gibbons with four minutes left in the first quarter and McCloud's 2-yard run with five minutes left in the second gave the Tigers (1-4) a 14-0 lead. The Buccaneers kicked a field goal on the final play of the first half.

Savannah State picked up two points in the third quarter when the defense forced Buccaneers quarterback London Johnson into an intentional grounding penalty in his own end zone.

The Tigers only attempted seven passes, completing one, but had 213 yards rushing.

Charleston Southern (1-3) was limited to 33 rushing yards on 34 attempts thanks to five sacks and had 90 yards passing.
