University of Dayton senior running back Taylor Harris scored two second half touchdowns and ran for 101 yards to lead the Flyers to a 17-7 win at Central State in the Xenia, Ohio suburb of Wilberforce.

Dayton trailed 7-3 at the half.

Harris’ two-yard run with 9:33 to play in the third quarter gave Dayton a 10-7 lead, then his 17-yard run with 1:35 to play in the game clinched the game for Dayton.

After a scoreless first quarter, CSU executed a perfect out-and-up pass route, quarterback Jeffery Brooks connecting with wide receiver Steve Heard down the sideline for a 49-yard TD pass to take a 7-0 lead. Dayton got on the board two possessions later when Nate Miller hit a 28-yard field goal.

The Dayton offense responded with its longest drive of the day, going 80 yards (70 of it on the ground) in 15 plays to set up Harris’ second TD of the day.

For the second straight game Dayton pounded it on the ground in the second half to earn the win. The previous week in the win over the Marist, UD ran for 80 of its 125 rushing yards in the second half. Against the Marauders, 133 of its 177 yards on the ground came after halftime.

Dayton is now 3-1 on the season.
