CHARLESTON, S.C. -- Patrick Hall ran for 129 yards and two touchdowns and Gardner-Webb held off Charleston Southern 35-25 Saturday in its Big South Conference opener.

The Runnin' Bulldogs (3-3, 1-0) scored two touchdowns in a 22-second span to lead 14-3 with 5:30 left in the first quarter.

Hall scored on a 7-yard run, then after Gerald Stevenson fumbled the ensuing kickoff, Chandler Browning scored on a 1-yard quarterback sneak.

Stevenson, who had a school-record 389 all-purpose yards for Charleston Southern (2-4, 1-1) returned a kickoff 92 yards for a score and caught a 13-yard TD pass to make it 21-17 at halftime.

Gardner-Webb led 28-17 after a 22-yard TD pass from John Rock to Juanne Blount, but Stevenson scooped up the attempted squib kick and ran 81 yards to score. The two-point conversion made it 28-25 with 7:32 left.

Hall sealed the win with a 2-yard TD run with 2:00 left.
