OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) - The Kentucky Wesleyan College football team posted a convincing 46-6 win over Lake Erie College on Saturday for their third win of the season. The second Great Midwest Athletic Conference victory on the year is the most the conference wins for the Panthers since joining the G-MAC.
Chris Logsdon sent a 41-yard field goal right down the middle with less than a minute remaining in the second quarter to give Wesleyan a 19-6 lead at the break.
The Panther defense started the third quarter by forcing a three-and-out. Derek Barnes returned the punt 15-yards before Johnson Jr. dashed 42-yards for a touchdown. Logsdon's extra point attempt was good as the Panthers went ahead by 20.
It was déjà vu three minutes later as Johnson tabbed another 42-yard touchdown run.
The Panther defense shined in the matchup, blanking the Storm for the final 44 minutes of the game. Lake Erie was held to 159-yards of total offense and just 11-yards on the ground.
Corey Johnson Jr. was nearly untouchable on the offense, accumulating 156-yards on the ground for three touchdowns, two of which were 42-yard carries.
Wesleyan will hit the road for their final three games of the season. The Panthers head to Hillsdale, Mich. on October 27 to take on the Charger of Hillsdale College at 12 pm CT.
