Valdosta wins Division II title

Posted: Sunday, December 12, 2004

FLORENCE, Ala. (AP) — Valdosta State rallied to win its first NCAA Division II championship Saturday, with Fabian Walker throwing two touchdown passes and running for another score in the Blazers' 36-31 victory over Pittsburg State.

Valdosta State (13-1) forced four turnovers and held Pittsburg State (14-1) to 371 of total offense — 243 yards below the Gorillas' average. The Blazers intercepted two passes and recovered two fumbles.

Valdosta State's Terrence Bell intercepted two passes, including a momentum-changer late in the first quarter after the Gorillas had taken a 14-0 lead.

''All season long we've bent, but we've come up with turnovers at the right time,'' Valdosta State coach Chris Hatcher said.
