Frazier scores three TDs but Tigers drop opener

Junior quarterback Connor Frazier rushed for two touchdowns and threw for another but the Towson Tigers dropped their season opener to Central Connecticut State, 31-27.

Neither team could punch the ball in the endzone in the first quarter but on the first dive of the second quarter Frazier took off and ran 24 yards into the endzone for give Towson the 7-0 lead.

On the ensuring drive, however, Blue Devil’s quarterback Nick SanGiacomo found Tyrell Holmes and completed the 38-yard touchdown pass to tie the game in less than 90 ticks of the clock.

It would be back to defense for the rest of the first half as the team’s went into the break tied 7-7 but midway through the third quarter SanGiacomo found Brandon Hollomon for a five-yard touchdown pass to put CCSU up.

Running back Darius Butler responded on the next drive with a seven-yard dash into the endzone and CCSU running back Rob Hollomon counters with a three-yard touchdown run on the next possession.

With the clock winding down in the third quarter the Tigers got the ball and tied the game again in just six seconds after Tanner Vallely and Frazier hooked up for a 19-yard touchdown pass.

But again, CCSU has a response. After a 10-play drive that lasted over four minutes Ed Groth booted in a 27-yard field goal to give them Blue Devils the lead once again.

That, though, was not the end of it for the FCS runner ups last season. With 8:52 left in the game Frazier scrambled out for a career-best 49-yard touchdown to give Towson the 27-24 lead, leaving it up to the defense to stop the Blue Devils to preserve the victory.

While they certainly did that on the next drive, the first time they did that after a Towson score all game, the Tigers were forced to punt on their next drive and gave the Blue Devils five minutes to do something.

And what they did was drive 80 yards on 11 plays in over four minutes, ending it with a one-yard punch into the endzone by Rob Hollomon for what would be the final 31-27 sore.

Towson had 36 seconds remaining to attempt a Hail Mary but could not connect.

You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
