CLINTON, S.C. -- Lucas Beatty threw for 209 yards and a touchdown and the Gardner-Webb defense came up with two late stops to hold off Presbyterian for a 20-13 win Saturday.
After Tamyn Garrick found Arthur Williams for a 19-yard touchdown to pull Presbyterian (3-8, 1-4 Big South Conference) within seven, 20-13, the Gardner-Webb defense forced the Blue Hose offense to turn the ball over on downs on each of the next two Presbyterian possessions to secure a win for the Runnin' Bulldogs.
Presbyterian got the ball on its own 28 yard line with 1:38 remaining but its final drive stalled on the Gardner-Webb 20 when Garrick's pass to Jeremiah McKie fell incomplete on fourth-and-2.
