Notre Dame College football impressive in win over Charleston

Oct. 1—A month ago, Notre Dame College looked like a football team out of sorts in a 31-14 season-opening loss at Ashland.

A month later, the Falcons look like a team that will be difficult to beat down the stretch.

Oct. 1 at Mueller Field, NDC started fast when Jay Sharp took the opening

 kickoff 99 yards to the house and never looked back in a 49-24 victory.

The Falcons improved to 4-1, and 4-0 in the Mountain East Conference,

with a game at Frostburg State on deck Oct. 8. NDC also got good news across the conference as Concord —

which entered Oct. 1 at 4-0 and 3-0 in the MEC — lost at Fairmount State, 10-9. The Falcons are alone in first place in the MEC.

said NDC senior offensive lineman Adam Reigler of his team scoring 97 points in its last two games.

"The sky's the limit for this offensive line. I'm really excited to see what happens in the future."

 "It's a blessing to be able to block for this running back group."

The Falcons had 452 yards of total offense, including 279 on the ground. Defensively,

they forced four turnovers — two interceptions and two fumble recoveries — and had 4.5 sacks.

Charleston scored on a Javonte Howard TD pass late in the first quarter

to make it a 14-10 game but after that it was all Falcons.
