The Citadel holds off Furman closing out with a 19-14 win

CHRALESTON, S.C. (AP) Jordan Black ran for two touchdowns, and Dominique Allen's 1-yard plunge with 2:13 left gave The Citadel a 19-14 win over Furman Saturday night.

Malik Diggs sealed the win intercepting P.J. Blazejowski with 1:33 to play.

Furman took an early 7-0 lead when Blazejowski connected with Andrej Suttles on a 12-yard pass. The 5-play, 25-yard scoring drive was set up when Quinlan Washington fumbled the opening kickoff for The Citadel (2-0 Southern Conference, 2-0).

The Bulldogs assembled a 16-play, 75-yard drive capped by Black's 1-yard touchdown run.

Black scored again on a 1-yarder, set up when Furman's Aaquil Annoor fumbled a punt return at his own 4-yard line. The missed PAT made it 13-7 at halftime.

Furman (0-1, 0-2) reclaimed the lead when Blazejowski carried the ball on a 1-yard score for a 14-13 advantage with 1:19 left in the third.
