BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. -- Kenny Cook had two touchdowns and 113 yards receiving as Gardner-Webb beat Furman 28-21 in the season opener for both teams.

Cook's diving 5-yard touchdown catch early in the fourth quarter gave Gardner-Webb its only lead of the game and turned out to be the winning score.

Gardner-Webb trailed by 14 in the third quarter but two short touchdown runs by Juanne Blount cut Furman's lead to 21-20. Blount's latter score was set up by an interception by Ivan Toomer. Blount finished with 158 yards rushing.

Lucas Beatty also had a big day for Gardner-Webb with the two touchdown passes and 276 yards. His 49-yard pass to Cook in the third helped set up Blount's first touchdown.

Dillon Woodruff became the first true freshman quarterback to start an opener for Furman since 1956, but went just 7-for-16 with two interceptions.
