Green throws 3TDs in Columbia’s 28-7 win over Wagner

Joe Green threw for three touchdowns to three different receivers and Columbia never trailed in a 28-7 win over Wagner on Saturday.

Bryson Canty, Wills Meyer and Cameron Burt each scored touchdowns for Columbia. Ryan Young ran for 117 yards on 24 carries and reached the end zone for the Lions (3-1).

Wagner’s Nick Kargman threw for 296 yards and a touchdown but was intercepted twice. His 8-yard scoring pass to Rickey Spruill 47 seconds into the fourth quarter reduced the Seahawks’ deficit to 21-7. Green’s 29-yard scoring pass to Meyer with 4:36 sealed it.

Columbia saw its three-game defense scoring streak — a program record — come to an end. The Lions moved to 4-0 all-time against the Seahawks (0-5). The series started in 2015 but Saturday marked the first meeting since 2017.
