Maryville College junior Darrell Tate fights for more yardage during the season opener with Huntingdon College last month.

The Maryville College football team delivered one for the ages last week, outlasting USA South Athletic Conference foe Methodist University, 36-30, in four overtimes last Saturday at Honaker Field. The Scots (2-2, 1-0) visit Shenandoah University (1-3, 0-1) for another league rumble on Saturday. Kickoff in Winchester, Va., is 4 p.m.

WBCR radio, AM 1470, will have the broadcast.

Maryville got a game-winning, 12-yard touchdown run from junior Darrell Tate in holding off the Monarchs last week. The Scots also got a pair of touchdown catches of 42 and 19 yards from sophomore Wesley Idlette, along with three Andrew Noboa field goals of 37, 36 and 25 yards. Two of Noboa’s kicks came during bonus football. Backup quarterback Chris Shelton had a 1-yard touchdown pass to Jeff Turner in the first overtime. Maryville linebacker Kyle Chewning, the 2008 USA South Defensive Player of the Year, earned USA South Defensive Player of the Week for his efforts against Methodist, finishing with 15 total tackles, two of them sacks. Chewning accounted for seven solo stops, with three of his tackles accounting for 15 yards of lost Monarch offense.
