MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - Dustin Peters was 8-for-16 passing for 125 yards, including a 56-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Mason, and also rushed for a team-high 98 yards for Martinsburg as the Bulldogs opened their season with a commanding 29-3 road win over Morgantown, which came into the game ranked fifth in the Charleston Daily Mail state poll.

Martinsburg was ranked second.

"This is a huge win for us on the road against such a great program, especially coming in with fresh faces and with some inexperienced players," said Martinsburg head coach David Walker. "I'm very pleased with how we reacted under pressure."

Two rushing touchdowns - Peters from 5 yards and Jordan Fields from a yard out - gave Martinsburg a 14-3 lead going into halftime. Brett Rogers added a 5-yard TD run in the third quarter and James Jordan added a 28-yard field goal with 4:41 left in the game to complete the rout.

The Bulldogs were exceptional on defense as well, allowing Morgantown just 149 yards of total offense.

"Our defense really kept us in the game," said Walker. "We're not where we need to be offensively yet, but we're still getting better. Dustin (Peters) did what you expected a senior quarterback to do. He led our team, and that's what we expect."

Ben Miller threw for 93 yards on 9-of-18 passing for the Mohigans (0-1), while Tyler Anderson had a team-high 42 receiving yards.
