Richmond opens new stadium with 27-21 OT win

Sep 18, 2010 - 10:51 PM RICHMOND, Va.(AP) -- Tyler Kirchoff scored on a 16-yard run in overtime and Richmond won its first on-campus football game in 82 years with a 27-21 victory over Elon on Saturday.

After playing off campus in a city-owned stadium about 5 miles from campus, about 8,700 turned out for the opening of Richmond's $25 million Robins stadium. It was the school's first home game since 1928.

Richmond's Latrell Scott won his first game as a head coach.

The Spiders (1-1) took a 21-14 lead with 1:41 left in the fourth quarter on Kendall Gaskins' 8-yard touchdown run. The Phoenix (1-2) tied the score as time expired when Scott Riddle threw a 25-yard scoring pass to Aaron Mellette.

But Kirchoff answered with his game-winning score, helping Richmond improve to 9-1 all-time in overtime games.

Mellette set an Elon record with 18 catches for 195 yards, including a TD catch in the first quarter.
