Gardner-Webb defeats Charleston Southern, 27-10

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. -- Lucas Beatty threw for a touchdown and Jordan Day nailed two field goals as Gardner-Webb defeated Charleston Southern 27-10 Saturday.

Beatty was 20 of 33 for 134 yards. Day hit a field goal from 34 and 26 yards. Kenny Cook caught Beatty's lone touchdown pass, a 4-yarder, to cap a 12-play, 86-yard drive in the second quarter. The Runnin' Bulldogs (6-5, 1/3 Big South) scored 20 unanswered points in the first half.

Charleston Southern (10-2, 3-1) scored early in the third when Elijah Lee intercepted a Beatty pass and returned it 17 yards for a Buccaneers touchdown. But Gardner-Webb's J.J. Hubbard answered with a TD on the following possession on an 87-yard kickoff return. Mark Deboy kicked a 22-yard field goal for the Buccaneers.

The game was only the second loss of the season for the Buccaneers, who are in second place in the Big South.
