Rams Win on Homecoming

October 14, 2006

Albany -- The Albany State football trailed at halftime of Saturday's homecoming game against Clark Atlanta, but came back in the second half to win 24-13.

Freshman Gary Neavins carried the ball 17 times for 137 yards and two touchdowns in the victory.

Quarterback Terrance Ransom was an efficient 10 of 15 for 95 yards, including a TD pass to James Dorsey to seal the game in the 4th quarter.

Clark Atlanta's Michael Porter started the scoring off with a 74-yard fumble return for a touchdown in the 1st.

ASU could only muster a field goal in the first half, but took a 10-7 lead on a Neavins touchdown in the 3rd quarter.

The Panthers answer back, but the Rams blocked the extra point, and trailed 13-10.

Neavins scored his second TD of the game on a 42-yard run early in the 4th to give Albany State the lead, and Clark Atlanta would fumble the quarterback exchange on their ensuing possession.

The Rams would take advantage of the great field possession with the Ransom to Dorsey touchdown, and improve their win streak to five games.

The game with the Panthers does not count in the conference standings, but ASU leads the SIAC at 4-0.

They play on the road at Tuskeegee next week at 1pm.
