JEFFERSON CITY — Down by two points, Carson-Newman College had a chance to take the lead in the
final minutes of the game with a field goal, but instead elected to go for it on fourth down.
Running back Tyron Douglas was stuffed at the 2 yard-line. Wingate scored on a 54-yard run from
Lantigua Nestor while trying to run out the clock to secure a 33-24 victory over Carson-Newman at Burke-
Tarr Stadium on Thursday night.
Wingate (3-2, 2-0 South Atlantic Conference) extended its win streak over the Eagles (2-2, 1-2) to three
games, holding C-N out of the end zone in the second half after trailing by four at the end of the second
Carson-Newman had lost only one fumble coming into the game, but turned it over on a botched hand-off
on the opening offensive play setting Wingate up on C-N's 19. All it took was two plays for the Bulldogs to
take the lead on a touchdown run from Nestor.
The Eagles didn't waste their next chance with the ball. Quarterback Brandon Haywood guided the team
downfield on an 11-play, 59-yard drive. After letting running backs Brandon Baker and Douglas do most
of the work pushing the team into the red zone, Haywood took it the final 5 yards to tie the score, 7-7.
C-N held Wingate to a three-and-out and stormed ahead. Haywood again kept the ball for a score,
barreling through the Bulldogs defense for a 21-yard run.
Facing a long third down on C-N's next possession, Haywood evaded the Wingate rush long enough to
fire a deep pass downfield to Luther Walker to set up the Eagles' third score. This time it was Douglas
taking the ball in from the 5.
Down two scores, Wingate woke up, scoring on a 75-yard strike from quarterback Robbie Nallenweg to
wide receiver Chris Bowden on a busted coverage. Bowden caught the ball right between the hashes with
no C-N player in sight, cruising into the end zone.
C-N answered back with a 35-yard field goal from former Morristown West High School standout Curt
Duncan, but Wingate was able to use the six minutes left on the clock to pull within four, with a 13-play
drive capped by a 1-yard touchdown dive from Lantigua.
