Westminster College junior running back Kalyn Davis rushed for 143 yards and a touchdown as the Blue Jays prevailed over Crown (Minn.) in a 24-7 UMAC win in their final home game of the season Saturday.
The win was the second in a row for Westminster, which improved to 4-5 on the season and 4-3 in the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference. Crown suffered its third consecutive loss in dropping to 3-6 overall and 2-5 in the UMAC.
Junior kicker Brad Hammel put the Blue Jays in front on a 34-yard field goal with 5 minutes, 9 seconds remaining in the second quarter. Davis — who finished with 22 carries — then made it 10-0 on his 1-yard touchdown run with 3:38 to play in the third quarter.
Sophomore running back Taylor Dobbins increased Westminster's lead on a 3-yard touchdown run with 13:46 left in the game. Crown answered with its only score on a 3-yard touchdown pass from Jared Gilmore to Cole Mistretta with 8:22 to go.
The Blue Jays then sealed their victory on a 1-yard touchdown pass from sophomore quarterback Wyatt Ellis to freshman wide receiver Travion Mosby with 3:52 remaining.
Ellis completed 17-of-26 passes for 181 yards and no interceptions, while Mosby had five catches for 60 yards as Westminster accumulated 415 yards of total offense.
Dobbins gained 85 yards in 14 attempts as the Blue Jays finished with 234 yards rushing.
Westminster's defense limited Crown to 213 yards of total offense and forced four turnovers.
The Blue Jays finish their season with a UMAC matchup at Northwestern (Minn.) at noon next Saturday.
