Guiles Breaks LVC TD Mark In Stevenson Rout

More news about: Lebanon Valley

ANNVILLE, Pa. Ben Guiles broke the all-time record for career rushing touchdowns with a three-score effort to lead Lebanon Valley in a rout of Stevenson, 61-37, in the first meeting between the programs at Arnold Field.

Guiles carried the ball just 10 times, but three of them were for touchdowns as he surpassed Charlie Parker '10 with his 36th career score. Colt Zarilla was an efficient 17-of-25 for 236 yards and two touchdowns in just under three quarters of play as LVC (3-1, 1-1 MAC) blew out to a 27-0 lead in the second quarter on the way to a 48-6 halftime advantage.

The Dutchmen scored eight touchdowns in all, including an 88-yard pick-six by Andrew Burkholder and the first career TD catches from Yahya McIntyre and Jimmie Miller, as well as Conrad Heisey's first on the ground. Kicker Sean Fakete set an LVC single-game record for scoring with a pair of field goals and seven PATs.

The first half was an offensive clinic by the Dutchmen, who scored on all seven possessions as they rolled out 333 yards of offense before the break.

"That first half was a gem. They're a dangerous football team in my mind," said Head Coach Jim Monos. "They've got some people at wide receiver who can go the distance. We didn't give up any big plays and we were methodical on offense, which I was really pleased about."

The LVC defense generated three turnovers, with Kevin Smith forcing a pair of fumbles and Nate Kauffman and Bryan Kasper had recoveries to go with Burkholder's interception. Jason Gigous led LVC with seven tackles and a forced fumble, while freshman Dachonn Johnson had five stops and a break-up in second-half play.

"I give them credit, they stayed with their kids while we went with some young guys," Monos said. "We said to our guys at halftime, you're going to get a chance to play and this is your shot."

Conrad Heisey led all Dutchmen with 72 yards rushing and a touchdown, while Brendan Kain had 47 yards on five carries. Zarilla spread out the receptions, with Yahya McIntyre catching three passes for 64 yards and a score, Tim Picerno grabbing five for 35 yards and a touchdown, and Matt Mankiewicz getting three passes for 63 yards.

Stevenson's Jared Jorgenson, a late decision to start at quarterback, was 27-for-44 for 269 yards and three scores with an interception; Patrick Diamond led all rushers with 90 yards and a touchdown, while Jae DeShields caught two TDs as part of a 92-yard effort.

LVC will enjoy a bye week before heading to rival Albright on Oct. 8.


Game Notes
LVC's coaches participated in the AFCA's Coach To Cure MD game to raise awareness of Duchenne's Muscular Dystrophy ... It was only the ninth 60+ point game in LVC history and first since hanging 63 on Bridgewater in 1989 ... The 61 points was a record for LVC in a MAC game ... Fakete tied the record for most PATs in a game with seven, and had a chance at an eighth but a bad exchange on the snap ended with holder Jake Zeigler trying to run it in ... Burkholder's 88-yard interception return for a touchdown was the second-longest in LVC history and longest since 1962, when John Kimmel took one back 100 yards ... Guiles ran just 10 times for 60 yards, which puts him just 36 yards away from surpassing Rick Coleman '78 for second on the yardage list ... The senior also moved past Parker on the all-time scoring list with 228 points, and he sits 38 points back of Adam Brossman '08's record ... Neither team had a sack ... The sides combined for 927 yards of offense (LVC 518, Stevenson 409) ... LVC racked up 252 yards on the ground despite missing starting right tackle Zach Nace and starting left guard Brendan Kozub ... Four players on offense had their first career starts: Evan Fink(FB), Yahya McIntyre (WR), Mike Attanasio (LG), and Chris Taggart (RT) ... LVC punted just once, in the fourth quarter ... LVC was 8-for-8 in the red zone and 2-for-2 on fourth down.
