Storm strikes late to claim Captain’s Wheel with win over Gannon

Lake Erie College came back from 10 points down and won its season opener, 13-10 over Gannon University on Thursday.

Brendan Gallagher threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Cole Gordon that gave Lake Erie its only lead of the game, which was good for the win.

On defense, Admiral King graduate Cameron Bryant made seven tackles and recorded two sacks.

The win was Lake Erie’s first in four meetings with Gannon after suffering defeats by margins of two, one and six points the previous three seasons. The victory also means the Captain’s Wheel, a new trophy honoring the winner of the annual Gannon-Lake Erie matchup, will be staying in Painesville this year.

The Storm is in action next on Saturday when they travels to Michigan Tech University for their Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference opener.
