NCAA Game Summary - Eastern Michigan at Kent State



(Saturday, November 19th)

Final Score: Kent State 28, Eastern Michigan 22

Kent, OH (Sports Network) - Spencer Keith threw for 173 yards and one touchdown to lead the Kent State Golden Flashes to a 28-22 victory over the Eastern Michigan Eagles in a Mid-American Conference bout at Dix Stadium.

Keith also scored a touchdown on the ground for KSU (5-6, 4-3 MAC), while Tyshon Goode finished with 129 yards and one touchdown on five receptions.

Dominique Sherrer rushed for 136 yards in the loss for EMU (6-5, 4-3), while Javonti Greene added 43 yards and one touchdown on the ground. Alex Gillett had a rough game for the Eagles, as the quarterback finished with just 84 yards through the air and was intercepted twice.

The first 15 minutes of action was dominated by the Eagles, as Kody Fulkerson connected on field goals of 27 and 44 yards, respectively, while Javonti Greene added a 32-yard touchdown scamper, giving EMU a 13-0 lead.

The Golden Flashes took over in the second stanza with two touchdowns, and went into the break with a 14-13 lead. The first score came from Trayion Durham who scored on a one-yard run, and that was followed by a three-yard touchdown run by Keith.

The Eagles went back on top early in the third quarter when Demarius Reed exploded for an 83-yard punt return. The extra point was unsuccessful, but EMU was still on top by a 19-14 margin.

After the crushing punt return, the Golden Flashes got back on track thanks to the leg of Freddy Cortez, as the kicker drilled field goals of 35 and 49 yards, respectively, giving KSU a 20-19 lead entering the fourth quarter.

Fulkerson's 40-yard boot early in the final frame put EMU back on top, 22-20.

Kent State responded later in the quarter when Keith connected with Tyshon Goode for a 70-yard touchdown pass. The two hooked up on the two-point conversion as well, which gave the Flashes a 28-22 advantage.

That is all the scoring Kent State would need to do, because the defense was able to shut down the Eagles the rest of the way, securing the team's fourth straight victory.
