DiIonno sets mark as Hopkins rolls, 35-17

September 12, 2004|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Johns Hopkins quarterback Zach DiIonno passed for 371 yards and four scores, and the Blue Jays pulled away late for a 35-17 win yesterday over Kean in Union, N.J.

DiIonno's 371 yards on 24-for-36 passing ranks as the second-highest single-game total in Blue Jays history. Only John Guglielmo's 477-yard effort against Georgetown in 1991 stands above DiIonno's total. His four touchdown passes were the most by a Hopkins quarterback since Guglielmo threw for a school-record six in the win over the Hoyas.

Kean freshman quarterback freshman A.J. Roque set a record for the Cougars (1-1) with 289 yards through the air.

Hopkins (2-0) led 21-14 at the half and pulled away with a pair of touchdown passes from DiIonno to Brian Wolcott. DiIonno hit Wolcott with an 11-yarder in the third quarter and a 14-yarder about halfway through the fourth, capping a seven-play, 80-yard drive.

Wolcott finished with eight receptions for 137 yards.

Anthony Triplin (Gilman) caught two touchdown passes from DiIonno in the second quarter, a 46-yarder down the middle for a 14-7 lead and a 23-yarder for a 21-14 advantage. Triplin had seven catches for 132 yards.
