Holland and Joe Crosby oi
Charlotte stoodout on defense.
Virginia Union got on the
scoreboard first on a 48-yard
punt return by Ken Brown
and lead throughout the first
half on the passing of senior
quarterback David Joyner.
A&T rallied from behind
twice before reaching the end
of the first half deadlocked.
"I was pleased with the
poise our team maintained
throughout the second half,"
said A&T head coach Hornsby
Howell, explaining "when
Union made a bid to comeback
late in the game, our ground
attack was able to run off the
time on the clock and (Va.)
didn't have time to complete
the comback."
The Aggies took the second
half kickoff to a lead they
never relinquished. In the
meantime, the Aggie's de
fense did riot allow Virginia
Union but six offensive plays
in the third period and held
them to a mere 29 yards
rushing for the game.
After VU took the early
lead, A&T fought back for a 7-6
score when Larry Bonham
zone-yard plunge got the Ag
gies on the boards and Tur
ner's kick failed.
A 38-yard strike from Joy
ner to Judge Thomas gave
the lead back to VU, but the
Aggies used-a 69-yard drive,
for a touchdown and Turner's
extra point for the 13-all tie at
halftime. James Crowder of
Monroe, N.C. got the six points
on a 4-yard pass from Turner.
A 1-yard run, ending a 75
yard drive and Turner's 8
yard keeper ended the scoring
for the Aggies and a 30-yard
touchdown heave from Joyner
to James Peay kept VU in the
game until the final whistle.
A&T has an opening date on
its schedule for Saturday, Sep
tember 11. The Aggies will
make their Greensboro Me
morial Stadium debut Satur
day, September 18, with a 7:30
p.m. showdown with mighty
