CHARLESTON - Another stellar effort from Glenville State's defense went for naught here Saturday afternoon as host Charleston eked out a 17-10 homecoming victory in a Mountain East Conference game.
Glenville State, which dropped to 2-4 overall and 2-3 in the MEC, managed only a 36-yard field goal by Josh Brown on its three trips to the red zone. On the season, the G-men have came away with just 11 scores in 23 red zone opportunities.
C.J. Stallworth's 46-yard touchdown run and Torie Wagner's 37-yard punt return for a six-pointer allowed the Golden Eagles (3-3, 3-1) to forge ahead 14-0 as Brown's field goal made it 14-3 at halftime.
The Pioneers' lone score came on the second half kickoff when Quin Thornton took it the house from 92 yards out.
Puma Nuredini's 30-yard field goal just four ticks into the fourth quarter were the final points of the contest.
GSC signal-caller Sean Steele hit 21 of 40 passes for 122 yards. He was picked off three times, the final coming on a Hail Mary attempt at the end of the game.
Rahman Lee was limited to 55 yards on a dozen attempts in the setback. Teammate Delvon Purvis grabbed eight receptions for 91 yards.
UC's Leighton Steele had game-highs of 27 carries and 111 yards.
GSC, which was led defensively in tackles by James Johnson (nine), Devin Cain (8.5) and Elijah Sala (seven) along with getting a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and an interception from Gary Henderson, returns to action at 1 p.m. next Saturday when Virginia-Wise comes to Morris Stadium.
