BETHANY, W. Va. – Eisenhower alum Owen Trumbull threw a touchdown pass and Reynolds graduate Dreyvin Livingston kicked what proved to be the game-winning extra point as Thiel snapped its 41-game losing streak, with a 27-26 win over Bethany.

The 41-game skid was the longest current streak in college football at any level and their first victory since 2017, a 28-13 win over Bethany.

Jordan Collier tied the game on an 11-yard touchdown run with 6:18 to play in the fourth quarter, and Livingston’s extra point proved to be the game-winner.

Trumbull finished 8-of-12 for 111 yards and a touchdown in the win, while fellow D10 alum Jordan Volpe (Sharon) had six tackles (1 for loss) and Reynolds graduate Luke Faber had four tackles, including one for loss.

Trumbull’s touchdown pass covered 52 yards to Andre Rodgers in the first quarter. Fellow Eisenhower graduate Jared Beers also plays for the Tomcats.

Two of Trumbulls’ completions went to Bradford graduate Donnie Pattison for 19 yards.
