Western Carolina ends 10-game losing streak with 20-17 win

CULLOWHEE, N.C. (AP) Will Jones threw a touchdown pass and ran for a score, Richard McCollum kicked two field goals and Western Carolina snapped a 10-game losing streak with a 20-17 win over Division II-member North Greenville on Saturday.

Trailing 17-13 with 5:31 to play, Jones faced fourth-and-8 on the North Greenville 14 when he hit Connell Young on an 8-yard pass for a first down. Jones hit Clayton Bardall on the game-winning 7-yard pass on the next play, ending a losing streak that dates to last season.

McCollum's 25-yard field goal capped Western Carolina's opening drive but his 41-yard attempt in the second half was blocked by Rodney Evans.
