BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ7) -- Amherst County committed 7 penalties and 2 turnovers last week in a blowout loss to George Washington. The Lancers tried to clean up the mistakes Friday at Blacksburg.
The home crowd was fired up because the Bruins led 22-6 at the break.
And they add to it on the second half kickoff. Brian Mitchell scoops it off the ground and Mitchell is busting loose. Some shoddy tackling from the Lancers as Mitchell makes a house call and the Bruins were on cruise control at 29-6.
Antwan Cole tries to keep the Lancers in the mix. He cuts it up and picks up first down yardage and Amherst had something cooking.
Two plays later it's CJ Rose on the keeper to get the Lancers a bit closer.
But the Bruins close the door as Luke Goforth finds Mitchell in the endzone for the touchdown. Blacksburg knocks off Amherst 38 to 18 the final.
