Barton College Falls 30-28 in First Game in Over 70 Years

WILSON – In a unique game where both squads were playing their first football games in over seventy years, the Barton College Bulldogs fell 30-28 to Erskine on Saturday afternoon.

Barton started the game with a bang on a reverse pass from wide receiver Kameron Johnson to quarterback Tyler Flippen for a 58-yard touchdown. Flippen, a former Northern Guilford standout, managed to complete the offensive trifecta, passing and running for a touchdown on the day as well.

Eastern Randolph’s Jordan Terrell led the Bulldogs on the ground rushing and added a rushing touchdown in the second quarter and a receiving score in the fourth quarter to bring the Bulldogs within two points.

Dionte Osbey was in the backfield afternoon, racking up three sacks and ten tackles on the afternoon. Graham Walston from North Johnston was 4 of 4 on extra points attempts. Former Cleveland star Jacquez Durham’s big kickoff return at the beginning of the game set up the game’s initial score.

Barton (0-1) will host Wingate (0-0) on March 13th at Electric Supply Company Field at Truist Stadium.
