NCAA Game Summary - Virginia Tech at East Carolina



(Saturday, September 14)

Final Score: Virginia Tech 15, East Carolina 10

Greenville, NC (Sports Network) - Logan Thomas threw for 258 yards and two touchdowns, and the Virginia Tech defense held strong as the Hokies knocked off the East Carolina Pirates, 15-10, in non-conference action from Dowdy- Ficklen Stadium.

Demitri Knowles was heavily involved in the passing game for the Hokies (2-1), as he finished with 99 yards and a touchdown on eight catches.

Shane Carden threw for 158 yards and a touchdown for the Pirates (2-1), although he was also intercepted three times in the loss.

Carden got the scoring started with a 22-yard touchdown pass to Bryce Williams less than two minutes into the game.

Later in the first quarter, Virginia Tech struck back with a 30-yard scoring strike from Thomas to Knowles, capping an 11-play, 70-yard drive that ate up six minutes of game clock.

The score remained tied until ECU's Warren Harvey kicked a 44-yard field goal to give the Pirates a 10-7 lead at the 8:49 mark of the third quarter.

However, VT answered with a 10-play, 75-yard drive, punctuated by a three-yard touchdown pass from Thomas to D.J. Coles. Cody Journell missed the extra point as the Hokies clung to a three-point lead.

Still trailing by three with just over two minutes remaining in regulation and the ball at their own 10-yard line, the Pirates had one last chance to tie or go ahead. Instead, Carden was sacked on first down and James Gayle stripped the ball in the end zone for a Hokies safety.

Journell missed two field goals and an extra point on the day. However, the Hokies defense headlined the victory, as they racked up seven sacks, 11 tackles for loss and three interceptions.
