Campus Corner: Swales Totals 115 All-Purpose Yards for Lock Haven


INSTITUTE, W.Va. — Junior running back Beau Swales (Clearfield) rushed for 78 yards on 22 carries in his first start for Lock Haven Saturday, but the Bald Eagles were denied a win in their opener when West Virginia State scored a touchdown early in the fourth quarter to pull out a 19-14 victory at Lankin Field.

Swales also caught two passes for eight yards and returned two kickoffs for 29 yards as he went over the 1,000-yard mark for all-purpose yards in his career.

After the game was delayed nearly 2½ hours because of lightning around Dickerson Stadium in the third quarter, the Bald Eagles struck for both of their TDs to grab a 14-13 lead that they were unable to protect.
