Toreros hold off Campbell, saves PFL home winning streak
TORERO STADIUM (11/07/2015) With the Campbell offense threatening to take the lead with a minute left to play, Jamal Agnew picked off Kameron Bryant at the USD one-yard line for the game-saving interception, allowing the University of San Diego Toreros to hold on for the 31-27 win, their 22nd straight against a Pioneer Football League opponent at home.
Making his return from a collarbone injury that kept him out since week one, Jonah Hodges rushed for 79 yards on 15 carries. Jereke Armstrong ran for 57 yards and a score, while Dallas Kessman lead all rushers in touchdowns with two.
Led by Bryant who utilized his mobility to complete 20 of 36 passes for 306 yards and a touchdown, the Fighting Camels (5-5, 3-4 PFL) put up more points on the Toreros than any other PFL opponent this season.
The top receiving target for the Camels was Aaron Blockman who hauled in five catches for 115 yards.
“I believe Campbell is the most improved team in the Pioneer Football League,” USD head coach Dale Lindsey said during the post-game interview.
“Coach Minter has assembled a very nice team and the players are well coached. Our two first half turnovers really hurt us and also gave them some life. They were really good on third down conversions and their receivers were just out-jumping our guys. Today was the perfect storm for one of those games, but it is a win and we’ll take it.”
