Hindered by a season-high five turnovers, Shippensburg was no match for Winston-Salem State in its Division II playoff game Saturday.

Winston-Salem State, ranked No. 2, romped past No. 15 Shippensburg, 37-14, to advance to the quarterfinals against Indiana (Pa.).

Shippensburg (11-2), the PSAC runner-up, pulled within 7-6 in the second quarter on Brian Sourber's 63-yard interception return for a touchdown. But Winston-Salem (12-0) answered with three touchdowns in the quarter to take a 28-6 halftime lead.

Shippensburg quarterback Zach Zulli completed 25 of 56 passes for 218 yards and one touchdown with three interceptions. He finished with 54 TD passes, tying the D-II single-season record. Jacob Baskerville caught 9 passes for 114 yards.
