Junior forward  (Middletown) netted Salisbury's first goal, and freshman forward scored the second and third goals. A pair of key saves by Farrace on two Hopkins penalty corners as time expired in the first half preserved the Sea Gulls' two-goal edge going into the second stanza.

  • Grier Puts on a Show, WVU Rolls Over Tennessee

    Posted 2018-09-02 15:09:41 by: Exec Exec

      (Sills, WV) CHARLOTTE – first opportunity to impress Heisman Trophy voters in front of friends and family in his hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina, was a smashing success.   And you can count Tennessee's first-year coach Jeremy Pruitt among the believers.   "In the second half, that guy made some throws and they made some catches," Pruitt said. "Then a close game gets out of hand. You can disguise some looks and muddy the water, but the guy is experienced and knows what he's doing out there."   Pruitt watched his Volunteer secondary get surgically dissected to the tune of 429 yards and five touchdowns – the most ever allowed by a Tennessee football team – in West Virginia's convincing, 40-14 season-opening victory today at Bank of America Stadium, home of the Carolina Panthers.   Grier's final passing totals included 25 completions in 34 attempts for a 228 passer rating. Eleven different players caught Grier passes, including three by tight ends and .   The majority of Grier's passing yardage and touchdowns came in the second half, which included a 20-point third quarter outburst that enabled WVU to take control of the game.   This came after a 65-minute lightning delay at halftime when strikes in the area forced two delays at 5:15 p.m. and 5:45 p.m.   When the two teams returned to the field, the older, more experienced Mountaineers with a veteran coaching staff benefited from the stoppage.   "I felt good about the continuity of our coaching staff and the extra time helped at halftime with adjustments," West Virginia coach said.   Two big pass plays from Grier, the first coming on third and 7 at the WVU 35 when he hit on a quick slant for 32 yards to the Volunteer 33, and the second going to  (ECU/Wilmington) on the very next play for a touchdown expanded WVU's lead to 20-7.   Grier was back at it the next time WVU got the ball following a Tennessee punt.
