Kelly leads Virginia Union to 50-21 win over St. Augustine's

RICHMOND, Virginia -- William Stanback had scored three touchdowns in the Panthers two wins prior to facing St. Augustine’s.

On Saturday, it was Lavatiae Kelly’s turn.

Kelly caught three of Shawheem Dowdy’s five touchdown throws, Stanback rushed for over 100 yards for the fourth time this year while scoring twice, and Virginia Union moved to 2-0 in the CIAA with a 50-21 win over the Falcons in their second game at Hovey Field this season.

It was the Panthers third win in a row after playing three straight games on the road.

Kelly’s touchdown catches came from 16, 20 and 46 yards. He finished with eight catches and 100 receiving yards.

The 6-2 190-pound junior transfer from Tennessee State chuckled when asked if he has caught three touchdowns before.
