McClelland, Williams help San Diego beat Dayton

SAN DIEGO (AP) Keith Williams threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, Dallas Kessman ran for 102 yards and two scores, and Troy McClelland had a late interception to help San Diego beat Dayton 40-29 in a key Pioneer League game Saturday night.

San Diego (6-1, 4-1) scored 20 fourth-quarter points on touchdown runs by Kessman, Chris Campano and Williams.

Kessman tied the game on a 7-yard run early the fourth quarter, but a bobbled hold on the ensuing PAT left it tied at 26-26.

Dayton (5-2, 3-1) then capped a 10-play, 67-yard drive with a 24-yard field goal by William Will about five minutes later.

After exchanging punts, Campano scored from a yard out and San Diego led 33-29 with 2:31 left.

On the ensuing Dayton drive, McClelland picked off a Will Bardo pass and returned it 27-yards, to the Dayton 14 and Williams added a 13-yard touchdown run.
