SAN DIEGO, Calif. – San Diego clinched a share of the 2017 Pioneer Football League title – its fourth consecutive year with at least a share of the crown – with a 45-15 victory against Drake, Saturday, at Torero Stadium. San Diego quarterback Anthony Lawrence threw for four touchdowns and 326 yards on 27-of-36 passing. Three of his touchdown throws came in a 24-point burst that broke the game open on either side of the halftime break.

Riley's one-yard run with 41 seconds left in the third quarter gave the Dolphins a 20-14 lead. Valparaiso would cut the lead to three points on Dimitrios Lastona' 20-yard field goal. However, the Crusaders final drive was denied when Trevor Tufano intercepted a pass in the end zone. Riley ran for 90 yards on 14 carries in the win.

Davidson held a 15-7 lead after Trevor Smith's second field goal early in the second quarter. Smith would lead Campbell to consecutive scoring drives and the Camels led 21-15 at halftime and would not look back.
