EMORY — Marshall Hollerith wasn’t Washington & Lee’s most productive running back Saturday at Selfe Stadium. But he still had plenty to show for his efforts.
The freshman scored on a 2-yard touchdown run with 3:55 remaining in the game, lifting the Generals to a 21-17 Old Dominion Athletic Conference win over Emory & Henry at Selfe Stadium Saturday.
Hollerith was only the third-leading rusher for W&L (3-2, 1-1) which churned out 441 yards on the ground on the Fullerton field turf.
Luke Terna rushed for 169 yards to lead the Generals, including a 73-yard scoring run in the second quarter. Quarterback Nick Lombardo rushed for 140 yards, including an 8-yard scoring run in the third quarter.
Washington & Lee got a 25-yard field goal from Matt Underhill for the 15-14 lead with 2:17 remaining in the third quarter. It was the Generals’ first lead of the game.
A 26-yard field goal by Wasps placekicker Austin Breed early in the final period put Emory & Henry (3-2, 0-2) on top again until Hollerith’s final go-ahead.
Former Gate City standout Joseph Vaughn led the Wasps in rushing with 79 yards, including a 1-yard TD run that initiated scoring in the first quarter.
Kyle Boden led E&H with 278 yards passing, including 7-yard scoring strike to Lucas Kirby. Josh Smith had nine catches for 84 yards and Cleo Cooper had 5 catches for 106 yards.
