Diving TD catch lifts Towson past St. Francis (Pa.) 35-28

TOWSON, Md. (AP) Christian Summers made a diving catch into the end zone with under five minutes to play as Towson capped a second-half rally and defeated Saint Francis (Pa.) 35-28 Saturday night.

Ellis Knudson completed 10 of 22 passes for 301 yards and two touchdowns - both to Summers after halftime - as the Tigers (1-1) rallied to beat St. Francis (0-2) which had forced a fumble on Towson's first play of the game, returning the miscue 89 yards for the early 7-0 lead.

Summers raced 94 yards up the right sideline to tie the game at 28.

After Towson took the lead in the closing minutes, the Red Flash sacked Knudson on fourth down to get one final shot from the 38 with two seconds left.

A scrambling Zack Drayer was pushed out at the 11 as time expired.

Drayer ran for one score and passed for 160 yards, twice hitting Kamron Lewis for TDs.
