Bucs Look for Consistency as Second Half of Season Begins

More news about: Beloit

Beloit College Buccaneers (2-3, 2-2 MWC)

at Lake Forest College Foresters (0-5, 0-4 MWC)

Saturday, October 9, 2010, 1:30 p.m.

Farwell Field, Lake Forest, Illinois

 

The Game:  The Bucs stay on the road for a second straight week as they take on the winless Foresters of Lake Forest College.

 

The Teams:  The Buccaneers had their comeback run out of time in a 24-21 loss at Grinnell College last Saturday.  The Foresters dropped a defensive battle at Carroll University in a 15-7 loss in Waukesha.

 

The Coaches:  Chris Brann is in his fifth season as head coach of the Buccaneers.  He is 2-2 against the Foresters, 1-1 at Farwell Field.  Jim Catanzaro is in his second season as head coach of the Foresters.  He is 0-1 against Beloit.  This is the first time he's facing them at home.

 

The Series:  The Buccaneers and Foresters are meeting for the 77th time in a series LFC leads 35-30 with 11 ties.  Beloit has won two straight in the series for the first time since they won five straight from 1988-92.  The Foresters' most recent win in the series came on September 29, 2007, 44-36 in Beloit.  The two programs first met during the 1891 season, a 10-4 Lake Forest victory.

Buccaneers Last Time Out:  The Buccaneers were on their way to erasing a 17-point deficit but ran out of clock as they fell at Grinnell College 24-21 last Saturday afternoon.  The Bucs had pulled to within three with 6:49 remaining on a Brian Maughn to Derek Carrier 15-yard scoring pass and the ensuing Maughn to Julian Ross two-point conversion pass.  But the Pioneers ran off all but three seconds of the remaining time to secure the win.  Beloit struck first on a Maughn to Carrier 82-yard pass play with 5:55 left in the opening quarter.  Grinnell evened it up just over a minute later on an 18-yard scoring pass to end the first quarter 7-7.  GC jumped out in the second quarter to grab a 24-7 lead at the break.  A short scoring pass at 13:29 of the quarter made it 14-7 followed by a 27-yard field goal at 4:59.  The Pioneers then tacked on a one-yard run with 1:45 left before the break to take their comfortable lead into the lockerroom.  While the Buccaneer defense held the Pioneers scoreless in the second half the offense started their comeback late in the third quarter on a Dillon Hess one-yard run.  But the kick failed and Beloit trailed 24-13 heading into the fourth.  That set up the only score of the final quarter from Maughn to Carrier.  Maughn finished 24-45 with two interceptions for 329 yards and the two scoring tosses.  Carrier made eight catches for 150 yards while Odin Grina had six catches for 81 yards and Ross six catches for 45 yards.  On defense Matt Fogerty and Ryan Koons led the way with nine tackles each.  Tony Baratti had eight.  Chris Juels recorded the only Buccaneer interception, picking off a third-quarter pass.

Last Time vs. the Foresters:  The Buccaneers couldn't get it going on the ground so they happily went to the air in a 29-22 Homecoming Game win over Lake Forest College on October 3, 2009, at Strong Stadium.  LFC struck quickly to grab the lead less than three minutes into the contest. Beloit battled back to take a 7-6 lead (LFC missed the point-after) on Dillon Hess' two-yard run.  Eddie Boyd then got his first collegiate score on a 20-yard pass from Brian Maughn late in the second quarter to make it 14-6. But the Foresters responded quickly and tied it on a short pass and the ensuing two-point conversion to make it 14-all at the break.  The Buccaneers jumped back on top midway through the third quarter on a Maughn to Julian Ross 69-yard hook-up for a score. CJ Yoakum turned a botched point-after snap into two points with a conversion run.  Derek Carrier then caught a 23-yard scoring pass from Maughn midway through the fourth quarter to put the Bucs up 29-14 with just 8:30 left.  Lake Forest wouldn't quit and marched down the field, getting a short TD pass and a two-point conversion pass with 6:19 left to make it 29-22. But Beloit ran out the remaining time with several big third down plays for the win.  The Bucs, who had 424 yards in offense, got 355 passing yards from Maughn with the three scoring passes. Julian Ross caught ten passes for 187 yards while Andrew Christensen and Derek Carrier both caught four passes for 64 and 62 yards, respectively.  On defense, Tony Baratti had 13 tackles, nine solo, and grabbed his third interception of the season to go with two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. Quentin Layne and Kyle Hansgen each had a sack.

 

Individual Accolades:  Brian Maughn's 329-yard, two TD day at Grinnell moved him up on several Beloit career passing lists.  He is now #4 all-time in completions (281), yardage (4,099) and touchdowns (30).  And his 57% passing ranks #1 all-time…Julian Ross needs seven catches to overtake Mike Meteyard (1993-96) in career receptions for Beloit.  It would also give him the all-time record in all three receiving categories (receptions, yardage, TDs)…Derek Carrier, who had 150 receiving yards on eight catches last Saturday, needs 35 yards to move into the fifth spot on the career receiving yardage chart.  He also needs just three more TD catches to move him into third in that career category.  Three more scores would also tie Ross' record for single-season TD receptions…Tony Baratti has moved within 20 of becoming the first Buccaneer with 400 career total tackles…

 

Up Ahead for the Bucs:  The Buccaneers head back home for two straight games at Strong Stadium, hosting Ripon College next Saturday and Monmouth College on October 23.  They then travel to Lawrence University in Appleton on October 30 before closing out the season on November 6 at home against Illinois College.
