VMI falls again, 31-21

The Charleston Southern Buccaneers earned their first Big South win of 2009 as they defeated the VMI Keydets 31-21 in a Big South Conference football contest played Saturday afternoon at VMI’s Foster Stadium in Lexington.

After a contest that featured three ties and multiple lead changes, CSU took command in the fourth quarter. An early field goal gave them the lead for good, and a VMI turnover led to a 12-yard touchdown run by B.J. Hackworth that accounted for the final margin.

With the win, Charleston Southern moves to 3-5 overall and 1-2 in the Big South, while VMI falls to 2-6 and 1-4 in conference action.

The Bucs’ victory is their fourth-consecutive win over the Keydets, and the visitors won despite allowing 335 rushing yards to VMI, including 160 to Howard Abegesah.

CSU quarterback A.J. Toscano was 19-of-24 for 193 yards, and completed passes to eight different receivers as the Bucs earned their first Big South win of the season.
