Benedict 5, Livingstone 3 - Clearly, offense wasn't the highlight of this day. Both teams combined for only 27 yards rushing, with Livingstone only mustering eight. The deciding play: following a long kickoff after Livingstone's second quarter field goal and then a holding penalty which backed Livingstone up to their own one yard line, Benedict's Chris Williams tackled Jarius Richardson in the end zone for a safety. But it was a big win for Benedict - they'd lost 12 in a row dating back to the 2014 season.
