The Captains were looking to go 3-0 in conference play -- NewsChannel 3's Ian Preston has the full recap:

Christopher Newport hosted Ferrum on Saturday night.

Captains looking to stay atop the USA South Atlantic Conference -- Ferrum just looking for their first win.

First quarter, Ferrum not playing like an 0-3 team....Tim Reynolds runs in for the TD...he also plays a mean guitar, we hear....Ferrum is up six.

CNU would start getting, Raland Gordon literally takes the shirt off of the runner's back!

Second quarter, the CNU offense gets some wind in their sails. Marcus Marast hits Rudy Rudolf for the big gainer -- that sets up a TD pass to Loudon...7-6, Captains.

Marast is a good dual threat quarterback, though. He shows off his scrambling ability all the way into the end zone for the touchdown. 14- 6, CNU.

Second half, CNU breaks it open. It's Marast once again to his favorite target, Rudolph...the 58 yard air strike....21-12, CNU.

CNU holds on to win 21-19...they stay atop the conference.
