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.

RB Taylor Harris (UD)

The University of Dayton Flyers scored 35 unanswered points on their way to a 48-14 win over the Valparaiso Crusaders Saturday at Welcome Stadium. Dayton improved to 4-1 overall and 2-0 in the Pioneer Football League, keeping Dayton in a first-place tie with San Diego and Drake.

Speaking of San Diego, the Flyers go on the road to San Diego this Saturday, October 9, Game time is 5:00 p.m. ET/2:00 p.m. PT.

UD scored first when Taylor Harris scored on a 19-yard run just under six minutes in the game. Valpo tied the game on the next possession when Nate Goergen hit Sean McCarty over the top of the defense for a 58-yard touchdown.

The Flyers scored the next 35 points, beginning with freshman Gary Hunter’s 82-yard kickoff return for a TD.

Hunter’s return was the first kickoff return for a touchdown by a Dayton freshman in the school’s ‘modern era’ (since 1920) and in all probability in school history. It was also the first by a UD player since Brad Thobe picked up an onside kick and returned it 43 yards against San Diego in 1998.

Andrew Zapinski scored twice for the Crusaders on the day. His first touchdown was on a two-yard dive with 10:50 to go in the game. His second TD was a 69 yarder for the final score of the day.

Zapinski was the game’s top rusher gaining 82 yards on four carries.

DT Mike Morante (UD)

Dayton outgained Valparaiso 443-200. The Flyers defense allowed just 33 net rushing yards, and sacked Valparaiso quarterbacks six times in the game.

James Vercammen led the Flyers with 12 tackles, including a sack, a fumble recovery and 2.5 tackles behind the line. Mike Morante had 2.5 sacks and Devon Langhorst added 2.0.
