3rd quarter update: UNC Pembroke 38, Charlotte 49ers 15

UNC Pembroke extended its lead to 38-15 after three periods, but the 49ers got a sign of life with a touchdown late in the quarter that cut the Braves lead to 38-15.

The Braves, who led 21-8 at halftime, got a touchdown on their first possession of the second half when Elliott Powell scored on a 5-yard run.

Pembroke then got three more points on a 46-yard field goal by Connor Haskins to increase the lead to 38-8.

The 49ers made it 38-15 on a 4-yard TD pass from Matt Johnson to H back C.J. Crawford with 2:01 left in the quarter.
