    导出博客文章(STATS) -- Wofford is known for its triple option offense, but the Terriers
    defense had the final say in a 15-14 victory over Charleston Southern in the
    first round of the FCS playoffs on Saturday.Tyler Vaughn scored on a safety just
    before halftime and Devin Watson intercepted two passes in the fourth quarter,
    sparking Wofford (9-3) into the second round next Saturday at No. 6 seed The
    Citadel (10-1). The Terriers tied for second in the Southern Conference behind
    the champion Bulldogs, who won their regular-season meeting 24-21 on the road
    Oct. 22.Wofford set up the rematch by improving to 14-0 all-time against
    Charleston Southern (7-4).Watsons second interception of Charleston Southern
    quarterback Shane Bucenell came at the Wofford 29 and he returned it 47 yards to
    the Buccaneers 24 with 1:09 left to play to seal the win. He also had six
    tackles.The last drive was huge, said Woffords 29th-year coach Mike Ayers.
    (Watsons) last play happened right in front of me and Devin was looking at the
    quarterback and when he saw him turn, he throttled back a little bit, and when
    the ball was released, he was already gone. It was a heck of a play. The defense
    answered the bell I dont know how many times.Vaughn dropped Bucenell in the
    Charleston Southern end zone with 2:19 left in the first half, which gave
    Wofford an 8-7 halftime lead.Wofford was held to 141 rushing yards -- less than
    half its average -- but senior fullback Lorenzo Long gained 96 yards and two
    touchdowns on 27 carries. His 32-yard scoring run with 2:32 left in the third
    quarter put the Terriers ahead 15-14.That was a heck of a football game and
    theyre a great team, Buccaneers coach Jamey Chadwell said. Theyre a classy
    program. I dont want to get beaten by anybody, but I know they do football the
    right way, so I congratulate them.Charleston Southern, the automatic qualifier
    from the Big South Conference, had two leads in the game -- after Bucenell threw
    a 7-yard pass to Jared Scotland late in the first quarter and on Bucenells
    2-yard run early in the third quarter.Darius Hammond led the Buccaneers rushing
    attack with 94 yards on 11 carries. Wofford has not allowed a 100-yard rusher
    this season.

    . Canada is now down to its 22-player limit, although but
    players wont be registered until Christmas Day. Changes could still be made as a
    result of a suspension or injury. One of the most high-profile whistleblowers on
    the international anti-doping front believes cyclings problems could linger for
    another decade or more and isnt sure sports will ever reach a point where clean
    competition is guaranteed.Frankie Andreu, who blew the whistle on teammate Lance
    Armstrong years before Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France
    titles, said cheating goes on in every corner of society and that sports should
    hope for continued strengthening of anti-doping programs to keep cheating at a
    minimum.In an interview with the World Anti-Doping Agency, Andreu lauded both
    WADA and the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency for trying to provide safe haven for
    whistleblowers to speak out when they see cheating.If theyre going to point
    something out, they dont want to feel like theyre out there by themselves and
    theyre thrown to the wolves and theyre going to start getting attacked every
    individual way, Andreu said.Andreus interview was released Thursday, the same
    day that Sebastian Coe, president of tracks world governing body, the IAAF,
    called now a golden opportunity for whistleblowers to step up.Yulia Stepanova,
    the Russian middle-distance runner who exposed secrets about the deep-rooted
    culture of doping in her home country, received assistance from anti-doping
    agencies in moving to an undisclosed home in the United States for her
    protection.dddddddddddd The IAAF allowed her to race in Europe this week as a
    neutral competitor and the International Olympic Committee is looking at
    clearing the way for her to do the same at the Rio Games.Stepanova and her
    husband, Vitaly, gave information that led to the IAAFs ban of the Russian track
    team from the Rio Olympics. They are portrayed as courageous heroes, and also
    examples of the impact whistleblowers can have on international sports.Andreu
    and his wife, Betsy, received much different treatment when they started
    speaking out against Armstrong in 2005, in part because of the cyclists
    worldwide popularity and the sway he held over his sport. They were ostracized
    by Armstrong, his team and others. It took years for USADA to get other cyclists
    to corroborate their stories.Andreu, who said making the Olympics was one of his
    greatest accomplishments, believes cycling has made positive changes, but has
    far to go before it can be considered a truly clean sport.Its just a shame that
    everything that went on in the 1990s is going to cast its spell for another 10
    or 15 years, he said. ' ' '
