Today's games

September 15, 2001|By Bill Free

Western Maryland (1-1) at Gettysburg (1-1)

Site: Musselman Stadium

Time: 1 p.m.

Series: Gettysburg leads, 41-12-1

Radio: WTTR (1470 AM)

Outlook: Western Maryland awoke from an opening-game slumber that resulted in a 29-20 loss to Bridgewater to smash Susquehanna, 63-27, last week. Green Terror QB Jamie "Boo" Harris threw six touchdown passes and ran for another. Coach Tim Keating substituted early and often in the mismatch. More of the same is expected today. Gettysburg doesn't appear to have the talent to stay with the four-time defending Centennial champs.

Methodist (0-2) at Salisbury (1-1)

Site: Sea Gull Stadium

Time: 1 p.m.

Series: Salisbury leads, 6-4

Radio: WICO (1320 AM)

Outlook: Salisbury RB Tony Ellis (144 yards rushing and eight receptions for 61 yards) and FB Sean Montpetit (two touchdowns and 81 yards rushing) continued to be impressive last week. But this time they didn't have enough help as the Sea Gulls lost to William Paterson, 26-13. Senior linebacker Pat Brannan had 12 tackles in the loss. Methodist was sacked by Guilford, 28-6, last week as QB Dustin Daniels threw four interceptions. But he did pass for 226 yards.

Johns Hopkins (1-0) at University of Rochester (1-0)

Site: Edwin Fauver Stadium

Time: 1 p.m.

Series: First meeting

Outlook: Both teams enjoyed easy opening-day victories. Hopkins rolled over Washington & Lee, 34-3, and Rochester beat St. John Fisher, 44-6, behind senior QB Jeff Piscitelli (22 of 35 for 280 yards and three touchdowns). For Hopkins, Kevin Johnson led all rushers with 59 yards on 12 carries. The Blue Jays discovered some depth, with three of their four touchdowns coming from reserves. Third-string tailback Adam Cook scored a touchdown in his first collegiate game, and fellow backups, FB Kyle Miller and RB Harrell Lightfoot, also scored touchdowns.
