Newberry College defeats Wingate 41-35 in double overtime

The Wolves survive a second half rally by Wingate to maintain a share of the first place lead in the SAC.

NEWBERRY, S.C. — A wild day at Setzler Field ended with a 41-35 double-overtime win for Newberry College over Wingate.

The Wolves were up 7-0 in the second quarter when a tipped pass ended in an 80-yard touchdown connection from Dre Harris to Deshun Kitchings.

Newberry led 21-14 when a fake field goal ended in a 30-yard touchdown run by holder Olin McCurry.

In the second half, Wingate rally from a 35-17 deficit to force overtime. But in the second overtime, Mid-Carolina product Cade Ruff hooked up with Bryson Woodruff on a 25-yard touchdown and Alex Smith's interception sealed the win for Newberry who improved to 8-2 overall, 6-1 in the SAC. Newberry can clinch at least a share of the regular season title with a win next week at Limestone.
