DAVIDSON, N.C. (AP) -- Antonio Hailstock rushed for 192 yards and caught a touchdown pass as Wingate beat Davidson 22-10 on Saturday night in the season opener for both teams.

Rip Smith also ran for a 26-yard touchdown and Chris Brewer kicked two field goals as the Bulldogs generated 428 total yards in the victory.

Davidson rallied to within 12-10 early in the fourth quarter when John Leverett scored from 7 yards out. But Smith scored two minutes later, and Brewer's 29-yard field goal with 1:51 remaining iced the game.

Hailstock rushed the ball 34 times on the evening and caught three passes for 82 yards.

Leverett led the Wildcat offense, rushing 21 times for 109 yards. Chris Costello also hit a field goal from 45 yards out.

Wingate won despite four turnovers, three coming on fumbles. Davidson quarterbacks were sacked 10 times on the night.
