PAT block helps Ark.-Pine Bluff top Southern 22-21

Southern scored a touchdown with no time remaining, but Jarvis

Webb blocked the extra-point attempt to give Arkansas-Pine Bluff a

22-21 victory on Saturday night.

Webb, a 6-foot defensive back, deflected Matthew Hill’s PAT

kick, denying Southern an overtime chance after Joseph Dray hit

Slyvester Nzekwe with an 11-yard TD pass.

Stephen Jones had a 25-yard TD run with 1:30 remaining, and the

Golden Lions (4-3, 3-2 Southwestern Athletic) added a two-point

conversion for a 22-15 lead. The Jaguars (2-5, 2-3) raced 76 yards

in seven plays to what it hoped would be the tying score.

But Webb got in the way.

Hill missed a PAT try and 33-yard field goal attempt in the

first half.

Dennis Jenkins rushed for 111 yards and a touchdown on 18

carries for Arkansas-Pine Bluff, and Justin Billings added 101

yards on 16 attempts.

Jared Green had seven receptions for 141 yards and a touchdown

for Southern.
