DAVIDSON, N.C. – Davidson tightened its grip on first place with a 42-15 PFL victory against second-place St. Thomas, Saturday. Davidson roared out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter courtesy Coy Williams' 37-yard run and Louis Colosimo's three-yard pass to Jackson Sherrard. St. Thomas halved the lead early in the second quarter with Tommy Dolan's four-yard touchdown pass to Max Zimmerman. But Colosimo pushed the lead back to two touchdowns with his 19-yard pass to Jalen Staples after Aaron Maione's 57-yard kickoff return set up a short field. St. Thomas opened the second half with a scoring drive capped by a Hope Adebayo rushing score, but Davidson scored the game's final 21 points to seal the win. Davidson ran the ball 65 times for 392 yards and four touchdowns, including Aris Hilliard's eight-carry, 89-yard, two-touchdown effort.

Valparaiso 65, Presbyterian 55
VALPARAISO, Ind. – Nick Orekoya ran for four touchdowns, and Robert Washington ran for three more as Valparaiso held on for a 65-55 PFL victory against Presbyterian, Saturday. After Presbyterian scored the game's first touchdown, Orekoya ran for the next three touchdowns, and Washington tacked on a 61-yard touchdown run to end the first quarter with Valparaiso up 28-8. Ren Hefley, who threw for seven touchdowns in the game, tossed three touchdowns in a 20-point second quarter, including a 75-yard touchdown strike to Jalen Jones, as Valparaiso held a 38-28 halftime lead.

Presbyterian would close to within three points, 58-55, on Hefley's 27-yard touchdown pass to Jalyn Witcher. However, Valparaiso recovered the ensuing on-side kick, and neither team would piece together more than a 19-yard drive the rest of the game.
