Blazers ignite in second half against Rams

November 27, 2004

ALBANY, Ga. (AP) _ Vincent Brown ran for one touchdown and caught a pass for another to help Valdosta State overcome a 24-point halftime deficit to defeat Albany State, 38-to-24, in the quarterfinals of the Division II playoffs today.

The loss by Albany State (11-1) snapped its 19-game winning streak and also proved to be revenge for Valdosta State (12-1), which lost to Albany State, 24-22, in the season opener. Valdosta State meets West Chester (11-3) in the semifinals on December four.

Brown had 66 of his team's 161 yards on the ground, including a one-yard touchdown run in the second half. Fabian Walker threw for 203 yards and a touchdown, including a 26-yard strike to Brown.

Albany State's Uyl Joyner threw for two touchdowns and Antonio Atkins ran for another, while Adrian Arango made a 20-yard field goal, to help give their team a 24-to-nothing lead at the intermission. But it was all Valdosta State in the second half.

Besides Brown's two scores, Tyran Robinson rushed for two touchdowns for Valdosta State as part of the team's 38-point flurry in the second half.
