Missed Fg Costs Hopkins

October 18, 2009|By From Sun staff and news services

Sophomore defensive back Kenneth Turner intercepted three passes and junior Clifton Budd led the Bowie State offense with 54 rushing yards as the Bulldogs recorded a 14-0 homecoming victory over St. Paul's on Saturday to keep them unbeaten in the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association and move them to 6-2 overall.

Turner returned an interception 37 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter to give the Bulldogs a 7-0 lead.

Midway through the fourth quarter, Larry Dixon (Dunbar) recovered a fumble to ensure the shutout.

Ursinus 16, Johns Hopkins 14: : Blue Jays junior Alex Lachman was wide left on a 35-yard field-goal attempt with 27 seconds remaining, and the visiting Bears (3-3) escaped with a victory despite their having just 9 yards of offense in the second half.

In a game featuring 20 punts, it was an error early in the game by the Hopkins punting unit that ultimately proved to be the deciding factor in the two-point loss. A bad snap sailed over the head of Blue Jays punter Max Islinger and he swatted the ball out of the back of the end zone for a safety to give the Bears a 2-0 lead midway through the first quarter.

Ursinus grabbed a 16-7 lead and held on to it until late in the third quarter, when the Blue Jays (5-2) went 46 yards in seven plays and cut the nine-point deficit to two on a 1-yard touchdown run by Andrew Kase.

After a Blue Jays timeout late in the game, Lachman drilled a 35-yard attempt, but Ursinus had called timeout and forced another try. This time, he hooked it just wide and the Bears secured the win.

McDaniel 16, Muhlenberg 9: : With the Green Terror clinging to a one-point lead, Sam Cox (Towson) recorded a sack, fumble recovery and 36-yard touchdown to seal the win for the visiting Green Terror in the Centennial Conference.

McDaniel (4-2) ended a 13-game road conference losing streak.

After Nick DeLuca kicked a 21-yard field goal in the first quarter, Matt Cahill caught a 32-yard touchdown pass to make it 10-0 in the second.

The Mules closed to 10-9 late before Cox put the game away.

Ithaca 20, Frostburg State 10: : The Bobcats (0-7) fell to the Bombers (5-2) as Ithaca senior quarterback Brian Grastorf threw three touchdown passes.

The Bombers withstood a late rally, stopping the Bobcats twice on downs in the fourth quarter. After Frostburg State's only touchdown pulled the Bobcats to within 13-10, the Bobcats intercepted a Bombers pass and drove to the Ithaca 28 early in the fourth.

Ithaca sophomore cornerback Spence White intercepted a Frostburg pass on the Bobcats' next play, and the hosts' final drive ended when junior strong safety David Ahonen broke up a fourth-down pass.

Lake Erie 28, Salisbury 7: : The visiting Sea Gulls (3-3) struggled offensively and ultimately fell to the Storm (5-3), which limited Salisbury to 207 total yards.

Salisbury started slowly as the Sea Gulls struggled to move the ball and found themselves down 21-0 after one quarter. The Storm benefited from three touchdown runs in the period, including 26- and 48-yard scampers by quarterback Sean Bedevelski. Lake Erie scored a touchdown late in the second quarter to make it 28-0 at the half.
