CLINTON, S.C. -- Tyler Huff threw for one touchdown and ran for another and Presbyterian rallied in the second half to defeat Gardner-Webb 24-14 on Saturday, the first victory of the season for the Blue Hose.
Presbyterian (1-9, 1-4 Big South) forced four turnovers and cashed them in for 21 points.
Gardner-Webb (3-7, 1-4) scored both its touchdowns in the second quarter for a 14-10 halftime lead. Kalen Whitlow hit Izaiah Gathings for a 10-yard scoring pass and A.J. Moses had a 1-yard touchdown run.
Presbyterian rallied with two touchdowns in the second half.
The first score was a 2-yard run by Jarius Jeter to cap an 80-yard drive that was set up by a wild play in which there were two turnovers. Gardner-Webb's Robert McKoy intercepted a pass and returned it 28 yards to the 1-yard line before fumbling. Presbyterian was credited with a team recovery for a touchback, resumed its possession at the 20-yard line and marched 80 yards to the go-ahead score.
PC's other touchdown was a 4-yard run by Huff early in the fourth quarter. That drive of 35 yards was set up by Rod Haygood's interception of a Whitlow pass.
The win snapped a 16-game skid that started Oct. 6 last year. Prior to Saturday, the Blue Hose's last win was against NAIA-member Lindsey Wilson (10-0) on Sept. 27.
