Final: Charlotte 49ers 52, Campbell 7


The Charlotte 49ers opened their new era of college football by pounding Campbell 52-7 Saturday before a sold-out crowd at Richardson Stadium.

Playing the first game in school history, the 49ers made sure there was never any doubt in the outcome, with linebacker Mark Hogan intercepting a pass and returning it 32 yards for a touchdown on the Camels' second play of the game.

Charlotte, playing as NCAA Football Championship Subdivision independent this season, then scored on its first offensive possession when redshirt freshman Justin Bolus caught a 1-yard touchdown pass from Matt Johnson.

Charlotte rolled up 488 yards in total offense (211 rushing, 277 passing).

The non-scholarship Camels (who play in the FCS Pioneer League) had four turnovers.

Johnson, who was spelled in the second half by backups Lee McNeill and Patrick O'Brien, completed 19 of 29 passes for 282 yards and three touchdowns.

A crowd of standing-room-only crowd of 16,660 watched the game in Charlotte's new stadium, which has a listed capacity of 15,314 seats.

The 49ers are home again next week against Chowan, an NCAA Division II team that plays in the CIAA. It will be the Hawks' first game of the season.

My bet is that Charlotte beats NC-Central by more than Duke.

UNC-Charlotte 49ers got off on the good foot to a rock solid start and made their school proud and looked good for a rookie even though Campbell was obviously lower tier with poor coaching.

Even the greatness of Appalachian State University football would give a semi thumbs up and maybe that one day many many years down the road you can be somewhat near to that upper level as the Mountaineers.
In 2014 you will see the real deal and find out.

ps At least for once in its history the city of Charlotte was made to look good in post secondary football. Hopefully your pro team learned something.

The UNC 49ers proved itself the classy superior football in Mecklenburg especially over that godawful terrible sucky nauseating outrageously overpaid low class NFL bunch of sleeze seedy retarded hoodlum bums downtown. Yikes !!!

Former Wake Forest coach Lambert was a class act with his well coached team. Very clean operation and a role model for kids.

And no nutty sport writers to screw it all up either ...

What a fantastic day for the city and for Charlotte Athletics.

The television production appears to have been produced by a high school AV class. Play by Play and color team were pretty good but I think the school could have done better.

Radio show much better on 730ESPN Charlotte. Although a friend attending game said signal was weak. Much better than TV Crew.

TV production returned to plays late, showed 3-5 seconds of cameras facing the ground. No REPLAYS! The need to improve on this as it was difficult to watch. My TV has a GREAT picture yet this game put it to a challenge.

Good experience but I wish they could improve TV coverage

OK Sparky (Justin).....congrats on your first victory, but don't get carried away with predictions. You beat a team today that DOES NOT do scholarships! Essentially a team full of sub-par high school wannabes not good enough to get offers to play anywhere else. OK....with that said, I'll make this prediction....NC Central will beat your boys by as much as Duke beat them!

Another prediction... just like we would never get a team... or we would never get good players... or we would never win a game....

Lambert should be ashamed for running up the score! Going for 2 so early?? Is he trying to prove a point? He is lucky no one got hurt!

Yo, haters. That all you got? Ya'll must be a bunch of non-scholarship haters.

I left the game early around the beginning of the 3rd quarter because it was in the bag and I had friends waiting in my mom's basement on the lake.

I think I am gonna sell my tickets for the next game, the novelty has already come and gone.
