Scott Riddle threw two touchdown passes, including the game-winner in the third quarter, to help lead Elon to a 27-23 victory against The Citadel last Saturday.

Riddle completed 18 of 32 passes for 237 yards with two touchdowns and an interception for the Phoenix (6-1, 4-0 Southern Conference). Brandon Newsome added 134 yards on 14 carries.

After Sam Keeler's 29-yard field goal opened the scoring for the Bulldogs in the first, Riddle hit Terrell Hudgins on a 70-yard touchdown pass to give the Phoenix a 7-3 lead to end the quarter.
The score was 16-13 at halftime.

The teams traded scores to open the third quarter as Elon's A.J. Harris rushed for an 11-yard touchdown and The Citadel's Blanchard threw his third touchdown, a 29-yard pass to Roberts, to give the Bulldogs a 23-20 lead halfway through the third.

But Riddle hit Bo Williams for a 10-yard touchdown pass at 5:53 in the third to put Elon ahead for good at 27-23.

Good night, game over, drive safely.
