CLINTON, S.C. (AP) - Deonte Davis’ 32-yard interception return for a touchdown with 1:46 left to play gave Presbyterian the edge over Western Carolina 19-14 on Saturday.

Davis’ score was the second interception TD for Presbyterian. The first came two plays into Western Carolina’s first possession after the game-opening kickoff when Ed Britt picked off the Catamounts Troy Mitchell and returned it 25 yards for the score.

The Blue Hose (3-2) led 13-7 at the break but a Mitchell TD pass late in the third quarter gave the Catamounts (3-2) a 14-13 lead that they were able to maintain until late in the fourth.

Presbyterian’s Kaleb Griffin was 15 of 26 and 133 yards passing. Demarcus Rouse carried 22 times for 87 yards.

Mitchell finished with 10-of-24 and 141 yards passing. He was injured in the third quarter and replaced by Garrett Brown who threw the interception that won the game for the Blue Hose.
