Adam Neugebauer’s overtime 13-yard touchdown pass to Jon Meadows capped off a frantic finish and lifted West Virginia Wesleyan (7-2, 4-2) to a 31-24 victory against Glenville State (4-5, 3-3).
Both teams had potential game-winning field goals blocked during a wild final 1:38 of regulation. GSC’s Eddie McKay had a 23-yard effort tipped, while Wes Hanson blocked a 33-yard try by WVWC’s Kevin Karpiak.
The Wesleyan defense clinched their squad’s victory in overtime after Neugebauer connected with Meadows for a touchdown during the Bobcats’ possession. GSC quarterback Gabe Profitt was sacked by Jonas Celian and was forced into three incompletions to end the game.
Profitt completed 13 of 28 passes for 236 yards for GSC. Jordan Griffin caught six passes for 121 yards, while Joe Mesadiue rambled for 122 yards on 22 carries.
Neugebauer hit on 26 of 44 passes for 357 yards and three scores. Jon Meadows, who established a WVWC single-season record for catches during the win, made nine catches for 139 yards. Julien Valentin rushed 26 times for 99 yards.
