HUNTINGDON, Pa. – Juniata scored 14 points after McDaniel pulled within 10-7 with 12:25 to play in the game to secure a 24-7 Centennial Conference (CC) football victory on Saturday.

Joe Rollins (Temple Hills, Md./Surrattsville) ran for 106 yards on the day for the Green Terror (0-8, 0-7 CC), recording his fourth 100-yard rushing day of the season. Ryan Yamada (Brookeville, Md./Good Counsel) threw for 147 yards on 13 of 26 passing and his first collegiate passing score.

Ward Udinski led the Eagles (2-6, 1-6 CC) with 306 yards passing, completing 18 of 26 passes with a touchdown. He also ran for another 65 yards and two scores.

Juniata engineered a 16-play drive that consumed 7:46 keyed by a 22-yard Deonte Alston run and 20-yard Udinski-to-Dominic Bornman pass play but the drive stalled after 80 yards. The Eagles were forced to settle for a 21-yard Scott Andrews field goal to take a 3-0 lead with 9:02 to play in the second quarter.

On 2nd-and-8 from the Juniata 21, a 78-yard pass play to Michael John set up a one-yard touchdown run by Udinski to stretch the lead to 10-0 with 9:29 to play in the third quarter.

Dinambi Butler (Washington, D.C./Archbishop Carroll) fought his way to the end zone for his first touchdown, capping a 12-play, 89-yard drive with a 10-yard reception from Yamada to draw the Green Terror within 10-6. Ryan Lutes (Lawrenceville, N.J./Lawrenceville) converted the extra point to make it a 10-7 game with 12:25 remaining.

The Eagles immediately responded after the kickoff went out of bounds giving the hosts the ball at their own 35. A 28-yard completion to De'Sean Popley on the sideline set up a first-and-goal at the McDaniel 9. One play later, Udinski went on a keeper to stretch the lead to 17-7 with 9:24 on the clock.

Juniata secured the victory with a 30-yard touchdown pass on fourth-and-10. Udinski hit Quadir Christian over the middle to make it a 24-7 game with 2:56 to play.

McDaniel had opportunities on either side of halftime. Taking over at its own 46 after a 20-yard Rollins punt return, the Green Terror moved inside the 25 before a pair of incomplete passes in the end zone in the final 10 seconds kept it a 3-0 game at halftime.

McDaniel also took its first possession of the second half but failed to convert a fourth-and-2 from the Juniata 20.

Zach Martin (Clarksville, Md./River Hill) led the defense once again with his second blocked kick in as many weeks, blocking a 27-yard field goal attempt late in the third quarter. He also had eight tackles, including 2.5 for loss.

Aqil Tweedy (Stafford, Va./Colonia Forge) made three catches for 58 yards. Keith Woodrow (Taneytown, Md./Francis Scott Key) made four grabs for 45 yards while Sean Montgomery (Bethesda, Md./Archbishop Carroll) had five catches for 34 yards.

The Green Terror returns to action in the home finale against Susquehanna on Saturday. Game time is 1 p.m.
