Javelinas Use Fake FG to beat Central Washington in Opener

Posted: Updated:

ELLENSBURG, WA (Javelinas Athletics) - Texas A&M-Kingsville head coach David Calloway called for a trick play late in the fourth quarter and senior kicker Matt Stoll made his coach look like a genius in his head coaching debut running 17 yards on a fake field goal attempt for the game-winning touchdown with 6:48 remaining in a 21-14 victory over Central Washington on Saturday.

Kingsville made the surprise play stand by holding off a late drive as Lamont Hills recovered a fumble at the 2-yard line with under 10 seconds to go. The Wildcats had picked up a first down at the two after a pass interference call in the end zone against Ronnie Ford on a tight play.
The game was tight throughout with neither team able to gain a lead of more than seven points as the Javelinas won for the third straight season in the opener against the Wildcats. Kingsville has won five straight opening games.

The Javelinas fell behind 7-0 when CWU linebacker Ridge Nielsen intercepted a Rios pass and returned it 31 yards for a score 1:22 left in the opening quarter.

However, Kingsville responded with pair of quick touchdowns.

On second-and-5 from the 40, Anthony Washington took the ball around the left end and carried the ball 60 yards for a score with 45 seconds left in the opening quarter.

Senior defensive end Robert Williams intercepted a Justin Lane pass and returned it 17 yards to the CWU 17. Two plays later, Rios connected with Robert Armstrong for a 15-yard touchdown completion just 46 seconds into the second period.

Jordan Todd scored CWU's only offensive TD of the game when he tied the game at 14 with a 6-yard run midway through the second quarter.

The score remained tied at 14 until Stoll's improbable touchdown run on the fake.
Washington finished with 93 yards on 15 carries in his first start. Rios finished 16-of-28 with a TD and an interception in three quarters of play. Dean Brantley was 6-of-8 for 55 yards in the final period. Armstrong had 10 catches for 93 yards and a score. As a unit the offense had 353 yards of total offense on 77 plays.

The Javelina defense was solid throughout the contest limiting the hosts to 202 yards of total offense. It was the Wildcats lowest offensive total in seven years.

In his first game with the Javelinas, Brandon James led the way with 12 tackles, while Lamont Hills and Ricky Marshall each seven tackles. Trevor Pesek, Steve Maeweather and Marshall each had a sack for the Hoggies.

Stan Langlow had 13 tackles, while Gabe Bruno had three sacks.
The Javelinas return to action Saturday at noon when they face Monterrey Tech at AT&T Stadium noon.
