CLINTON, S.C. – Idris Anderson rushed for 117 yards and two touchdowns and North Greenville defeated Presbyterian for the first time in school history, 34-17, on Saturday.
Anderson carried the ball only 13 times for the Division II Crusaders (2-3), who never trailed. The Blue Hose (0-4), who lead the series 4-1, were looking for their first win since 2008 after going 0-11 in 2009 and losing this season to Wake Forest, Clemson and The Citadel.
Tied at 7 after the first quarter, Willy Korn put North Greenville ahead 14-7 with an 82-yard touchdown pass to freshman Freddie Martino Jr. Presbyterian's Cam Miller kicked a field goal, then Korn hit Sean Wright with a 5-yard TD and Teryan Rucker scored on a 3-yard run.
Presbyterian's Brandon Miley threw his second touchdown pass, a 7-yarder to Jeremy Cole to make it 27-17 with 8:18 to go, but Anderson sealed the win with a 6-yard TD.
