HICKORY, N.C. -- The Alderson Broaddus football team lost to No. 18 Lenoir-Rhyne University 62-24 Saturday afternoon at Moretz Stadium.

The Battlers (4-5) trailed by just 11 points at the end of the first half of Saturday's loss. Quarterback Wilson Vaughn (Glen Allen, Va.) hit tight end Cooper Schroeder (Canonsburg, Pa.) for a 21-yard touchdown strike and then connected with Paris Person (Washington D.C.) for a two-yard TD toss with 10 seconds remaining in the opening half.

Vaughn was 26-for-38 for 221 yards and two touchdowns against the Bears (9-1), but also heaved three interceptions, two of which were returned for touchdowns.

L-R completed just one pass in the game and left the rest of the offense to its running game. The Bears racked up 442 yards on the ground and averaged 9.2 yards per carry. Teverrius Jones carried the rock seven times for 110 yards and Isaiah Whitaker rushed for three touchdowns.

Schroeder finished the game with a team-high 71 receiving yards for the blue and gold. He caught two touchdowns, including a TD pass from freshman Dakota Bruggeman (Knoch, Pa.) in the closing minutes.

Tailback Brandon Jones (Williamsburg, Va.) led ABU with 157 yards rushing on 22 carries. He is just 43 yards shy of breaking the 1,000-yard mark for the season.

ABU hosts Cumberland University Saturday, Nov. 16 at AB Stadium. The Senior Day game and season finale is scheduled for a noon ET kickoff.
