After a season-opening loss at Christopher Newport (Va.), the Kean University football team bounced back with a gritty, come-from-behind performance on Saturday.
Junior kicker Aryeh Moslavi kicked his second field goal of the day, a 24-yarder, with 10:24 remaining to lift Kean to a 15-14 victory over Bridgewater State (Mass.) at Swenson Field in Bridgewater, Massachusetts.
Trailing 14-10, Kean (1-1) opened the fourth quarter with a safety 26 seconds in, to cut the Bears lead to 14-12.
After the ensuing free kick, the Cougars took over in good field position at their own 47-yard line and promptly put forth a 13-play drive that stalled at the Bears 7-yard line. Moslavi, who had kicked a 28-yarder in the first quarter to give Kean a 3-0 lead, booted the eventual game-winner to cap the scoring at 15-14.
Junior quarterback Charles App, who compeleted 8-of-15 passes for just 69 yards, threw a 9-yard TD pass to Ben Guarino with 1:51 left in the first quarter to give Kean a 10-0 lead after one quarter for its only TD of the game.
App also rushed for 58 yards on 19 carries.
Junior running back Brian Matthews rushed for a game-high 105 yards on 30 carries for Kean, which returns home Friday night to face The College of New Jersey (0-1) in a New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) matchup. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
Defensively, junior linebacker Darin Hungerford finished with eight tackles, including three for loss and forced a fumble for the Cougars. Senior linebacker Robert Meade III added six solo tackles to go along with one interception in the second interception. The Cougars limited the Bears to 258 yards of total offense and forced four turnovers.
