Lexington, VA -- Sophomore wide receiver Colton Ward (Charlotte, N.C./Charlotte Country Day) totaled 203 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns to propel the Washington and Lee football team to a 41-14 Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) win over Guilford on Saturday afternoon at Wilson Field.
Ward caught seven passes for 61 yards and a touchdown, rushed eight times for 34 yards and racked up 108 kick return yards, including an 86-yard touchdown return in the third quarter. For Ward it was his second kick return for a touchdown in the past two weeks, tying the W&L record for kickoff return touchdowns for a season (2) and career (2).
The Generals (4-3, 3-1 ODAC) jumped out to a 14-0 first quarter lead on a 1-yard touchdown run by sophomore fullback Ryan Sullivan (New Providence, N.J./New Providence) and a 17-yard touchdown reception by sophomore wide receiver Garrett LeRose (Lebanon, N.J./Hunterdon Central). W&L added to its lead on a 2-yard touchdown run by junior quarterback Greg Tweardy (Bethel Park, Pa./Bethel Park) with 11:08 remaining in the third quarter, but Guilford answered as sophomore running back Branden Lindsey (Reidsville, N.C./Rockingham County) scored on a 7-yard touchdown pass from sophomore quarterback Chris Gammon (Graham, N.C./Graham) to cut the lead to 20-7 with 7:20 remaining in the third period.
Ward then responded with his 86-yard kickoff return on the ensuing kickoff and, sandwiched around a 1-yard touchdown reception by GC sophomore wide receiver Chris Barnette (Semora, N.C./Person), caught a 22-yard touchdown pass from Tweardy for a 34-14 lead. Sophomore running back Will Hatfield (Madison, W.Va./Scott) capped the scoring on a 7-yard touchdown run with 4:17 remaining in the game.
Ward led the Generals offense, while Tweardy completed 17-of-26 passes for 192 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed for nine yards and a touchdown. Senior wide receiver Taylor Callaham (Atlanta, Ga./McDonogh) caught four passes for 81 yards, including a 49-yard reception to set up the game's opening score. Senior linebacker Lloyd Wilson (Austin, Texas/Stephen F. Austin) paced the defense with nine tackles and a sack.
Guilford (0-7, 0-3 ODAC) was led by Gammon, who completed a career-high 17 passes (33 att.) for 124 yards and two touchdowns. Sophomore wide receiver Micah Rushing (Albemarle, N.C./Albemarle) caught five passes for 53 yards and freshman defensive back Bryan Cook (Hayesville, N.C./Hayesville) led the defense with seven tackles and an interception.
