ATCHISON, KS -- A Central Methodist University fourth quarter comeback attempt at No. 12-ranked Benedictine College was thwarted with an interception in the endzone Saturday afternoon at Larry Wilcox Stadium in Heart of America Athletic Conference football action.

The Ravens (5-1, 3-1 HAAC) won despite being outgained 345-261 by the Eagles (2-4, 2-3 HAAC). Central Methodist outrushed Benedictine 247-143 and held the home team 23 points below its season scoring average.

Two Bill Noonan touchdown passes in the first 15:15 of the game gave the Ravens a 14-0 edge before the Eagles' defense settled into the game. With 11:36 left in the first half, Conner White recovered a Noonan fumble at the Ravens' 45.

Central Methodist opened the second half by focing a three-and-out before marching 75 yards in nine plays. Jacob Jackson began to get in rhythm with the passing game, finding Jamall Williams for two of his season-high 14 completions before Cleave Perryman finished off the drive with a six-yard touchdown run seven minutes into the third quarter.

Cameron Fore scored late in the third quarter from two yards out on the ground, giving Benedictine another two-touchdown advantage. The Eagles answered on the next offensive series with a 15-play, 86-yard drive that lasted 6:45. Jackson cut the deficit to seven points on a fourth-and-goal quarterback sneak from one yard out.

The Ravens' Zach Keenan missed a 36-yard field goal wide right with 6:56 left in the game, giving Central Methodist a chance to tie the contest. Jackson found Williams for an 11-yard gain to advance the ball to Benedictine's 26-yard line. Central Methodist gained three additional yards on three downs before Jackson's pass to Williams was picked off by Ashton Stephens with under two minutes remaining in the game.

Central Methodist's defense got off the field in only three plays, giving the ball back to the offense at the Eagles' 37 with 20 seconds on the clock. Jackson completed a pass to Cody Skinner for seven yards, but a last-ditch hailmary attempt fell short.

Noonan was 12-of-20 through the air for 118 yards with two touchdowns and was sacked once. Fore rushed 14 times for 124 yards and one touchdown. Fore and Geoff Akpom caught one touchdown apiece.

Jackson threw for 98 yards on 23 attempts with one interception and was sacked once. The Tampa, Fla., native completed passes to seven different targets and also rushed eight times for 37 yards and one touchdown.

Burton Iosefa gained 75 yards on 17 carries for the Eagles. Perryman added 67 yards on 15 rushes with one touchdown. Reny Reis had 27 yards on five carries.

Iosefa had a team-high five catches for 35 yards. Williams caught four balls for 38 yards.

Cameron Humphrey totaled a game-high 12 tackles for the Ravens. Burl Brisbane and Andrew Jones had 10 apiece.

White came up with a team-high nine tackles, including 4.5 tackles for loss and one fumble recovery. Ryan Restemayer tallied eight tackles after missing the last game due to injury.

Central Methodist will return to Davis Field on Saturday, October 13 for the annual Homecoming game. Kickoff against Graceland University is set for 1 p.m. CT.
