Chattanooga bests Elon 20-9

Keon Williams rushed for 118 yards and two touchdowns as

Chattanooga bested Elon 20-9 in a Southern Conference matchup

Saturday.

Elon (2-6, 1-3) scored first, as a John Gallagher 19-yard field

goal capped a 16-play, 80-yard first quarter drive. Chattanooga

(5-2, 3-1) answered with a nine-play, 75-yard drive of their own,

culminating in Williams’ 4-yard TD run. Gallagher’s second field

goal of the day, from 30 yards out, cut the lead to 1, but

Chattanooga marched right back for 65 yards in 12 plays as Williams

punched one in from two yards for the 14-6 halftime score.

The Mocs added two Nick Pollard field goals, from 32 and 19

yards, in the second half, while Elon could only answer with

Gallagher’s third field goal of the day, a 23-yarder in the third

quarter.

Mike Quinn passed for 237 yards for Elon, despite a heavy rain

much of the afternoon.
