Spiders Open Season with Nail-biting Win at Duke

Durham, NC (WWBT)- For the third time since 2006, Richmond headed to Duke and came away from Wallace Wade Stadium with a victory.  The Spiders held off several Blue Devils drives late in the game to earn a 23-21 victory, marking Wayne Lineburg's first win as interim head coach.

After a scoreless first quarter, Richmond opened the scoring in the second, as Aaron Corp found Stephen Barnette from six yards out to give the Spiders the 7-0 lead.  It marked Barnette's first career touchdown catch.  Desmond Scott provided Duke with the equalizer, racing to the endzone for a 29 yard touchdown to tie the game at seven.  Darius McMillan recovered a fumble, Remington Hinshaw kicked a 29 yard field goal to put the Spiders in front at halftime, 10-7.

The two teams went back and forth in the second half until the score reached 23-21 in favor of Richmond.  Garrett Turner's one yard run put the Spiders in front with 10:12 remaining in the contest.  The Blue Devils got several chances, including a field goal attempt with less than two minutes remaining, but Will Snyderwine missed a 28 yard chip shot with 1:43 remaining that would have given Duke the one point lead.  Snyderwine would get another chance, but miss from 60 yards out.

Corp finished the day 14-of-31 for 193 yards, a touchdown and an interception.  Tre Gray pulled in a career-high eight catches for a career-best 129 yards through the air.  Defensively, Cooper Taylor paced the Spiders in his Richmond debut, tallying a game high 14 tackles, one for loss, forcing a fumble and breaking up a pass.  McMillan contributed 12 tackles and Colin Pehanick tallied a career-high nine tackles and a forced fumble.

Richmond holds its home opener on Saturday when Wagner visits Robins Stadium.  Kickoff is scheduled for 6:00 pm.
