Beloit College scored a pair of fourth quarter touchdowns to break open a close game and defeat Knox College in Midwest Conference play 34-20 Saturday at the Knosher Bowl. Dillon Hess ran in a 4-yard touchdown with 12:09 to play and Raymond Thomas capped off the day’s scoring with a 3-yard run as Beloit (1-3, 1-2 MWC) outscored the Prairie Fire 13-0 over the final 15:00 and earned its first win of the season. The Prairie Fire took a 7-0 lead when sophomore quarterback Drew Diaz scored on a 5-yard run at the 11:06 mark of the second quarter and junior Doug Lillibridge connected on the PAT.  The lead could have been bigger, but Lillibridge missed a pair of first quarter field goals after Knox drove into the red zone on its first two possessions of the game.

Diaz completed 17-of-38 passes for 204 yards.  He also carried the ball eight times for 64 yards.  Senior running back Luke Northam added 53 yards rushing on eight carries as the Fire ground game piled up 236 yards. Brian Maughn was 23-of-33 for 359 yards and two touchdowns for the Bucs and Derek Carrier caught both of the TD passes and finished with seven catches for 153 yards. Zach Draus led the Beloit run game with eight carries for 71 yards.
