The Lenoir-Rhyne University Football Team (1-1) picked up its first win of the year with a 22-10 triumph over North Greenville (1-1) Saturday evening at Moretz Stadium.

Lenoir-Rhyne sophomore quarterback Jarrod Kellar (Shinnston, W.Va.) threw for 170 yards and two touchdown passes while sophomore running back Nelson Brown (Salisbury, Md.) added 106 yards on the ground and a score as the Bears held a dominating edge in time of possession – 43:26-16:34 – in the victory.

The Bears found the end zone on their first three possessions including four and five-yard touchdown receptions by freshman Jordan Mann (Apex, N.C.) and sophomore wideout Jaquay Mitchell (Bailey, N.C.) in the first quarter.

North Greenville was limited to just 199 yards of total offense as the Bears simply kept the Crusaders off the field.
