Wise, Va. - Georgetown College fell just short of a stylish comeback, losing at the University of Virginia at Wise by a score of 28-21 on Saturday.

The Tigers, who overcame a 14-0 halftime score, were down 28-21 with 37 seconds left in the game and looked to score but Mike Lewis' pass was intercepted at the five-yard line by Virginia-Wise's Marcus Bratton. It was Lewis' fourth interception on the day.

Georgetown didn't find the endzone until 1:57 remaining in the third quarter, when freshman fullback Dustin May scored on a one-yard run.  That started the Tiger late surge, with Lewis scoring on a 16-yard run with 12:56 to go in the fourth quarter before senior running back Nik Blair scored on a one-yard run with 8:08 left in the contest. Lewis finished the day 10-of-25, passing for 161 yards but four turnovers, including the costly final pass.

UVA-Wise was paced by senior quarterback Brad Robbins, who was 13-of-21 passing for 265 yards and three touchdowns, including a 65-yard pass to Jason Lovett to put the Highland Cavaliers up 21-0 with 5:37 remaining in the third quarter.

Georgetown senior running back Ted Sberna (shown above) had 18 carries for 158 yards for the Tigers and was named one of the College Fanz players of the game. The Cavaliers' Robbins was also selected by the College Fanz NAIA Football Game of the Week broadcast team.  Each school's athletic fund was presented a $1,000 donation by College Fanz in recognition of the outstanding players of the game

The Tigers fell to 3-2 on the year and 1-1 in Mid-South Conference play while Virginia-Wise evened things up at 3-3 and 2-1.  Next up for Georgetown is Kentucky Christian University on Saturday.  The game will be played in South Point, Ohio and kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m.
