Home Cooking: Neal's late TD leads Vikings past Bears

ELIZABETH CITY, North Carolina -- Elizabeth City State quarterback Daquan Neal scored the eventual game-winning touchdown as the Vikings defeated Shaw 28-21 on Saturday at Roebuck Stadium.

The quarterback scampered into the end zone from 15 yards out with 6:43 remaining to give the Vikings the seven-point advantage.

Neal completed 21-of-27 passes for 201 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions.

The junior quarterback added 45 rushing yards to give ECSU its first Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association victory on the season.

“I thought that he did a better job of managing the football game,” ECSU coach Earnest Wilson said.
With the Vikings (2-3, 1-1 CIAA) up 21-14 early in the fourth quarter, Shaw (0-5, 0-2 CIAA) tied the game on a Darron Downing 16-yard touchdown pass to Rahim Winston with 10:19 to go.
