Slowley scores 4 more in SCSU win

Rashaad Slowley rushed for 236 of his career-high 288 yards in the second half and scored four touchdowns as the Southern Connecticut State football team rallied from a two-touchdown halftime deficit for a 38-24 win over Assumption in Worcester, Mass., on Saturday.
The Owls (4-1 overall, 3-0 NE-10), who have won four straight, outscored the Greyhounds 31-3 in the second half.
Slowley started things early in the second half with a 71-yard touchdown run on the second play after the break.
On the ensuing Assumption possession, Michael Escobar intercepted a Greyhounds’ pass that the Owls turned into three points on a 33-yard field goal by Christopher Hazelton.
Assumption (1-4, 0-3) countered with a field goal to restore the lead to seven points, but the Owls’ defense kept the Greyhounds off the scoreboard the rest of the day.
Slowley scored on a three-yard run with 4:46 left in the third quarter to tie the score at 24.
The game was still in doubt late in the fourth, but the Owls assembled an 11-play, 83-yard drive over 4:48 that culminated on a five-yard run by Slowley.
Defensive back Kamal Mgaresh put the game out of reach with a 53-yard interception return to make it a 38-24 final.
SCSU quarterback Kevin Lynch finished 20 of 38 for 213 yards. Willie Epps and Andre Privott each had six catches for 95 and 58 yards, respectively.
Davel Campbell led the defense with nine tackles.
