Game Notes
Notes from the Lake Forest Game: 
DB Vince Salucci blocked got the tenth blocked kick of his career in the first quarter last Saturday, knocking away Lake Forest's point-after attempt following their first TD…With his five catches for 118 yards and two TDs last Saturday, WR Derek Carrier  has had 100-plus receiving yards in eight of his last nine games.  He's also caught at least two touchdown passes in three straight games and four of his last five…WR/P Dillon Hess is averaging 36.4 yards per punt (30-1092), which is the best single-season average in Beloit history to date.

The Series:  The Buccaneers and Red Hawks are meeting for the 97th time, the oldest Football series on the Beloit College books.  Ripon leads the series 63-29 with four ties.  The Red Hawks have won nine of the last ten, with the lone Beloit win in the streak coming in 2005 (28-22 in Beloit).  The teams first met in the second game of the 1893 season, a 22-0 Beloit win.  The Bucs won the first six meetings, including back-to-back games during the 1895 season, before Ripon got their first series victory in 1906, 4-0.  Included in the first six Buccaneers victories were scores of 82-0 (1895) and 78-0 (1900).  The 82-0 win ranks as the second-largest margin of victory in Beloit history while the 78-0 victory is #3.  (#1 is a 115-0 win over DeKalb in 1913.)

Buccaneers Last Time Out: Beloit got into an early hole and couldn't quite get themselves back out in a 27-17 loss to Lake Forest College last Saturday afternoon at Strong Stadium.  Lake Forest scored the only points of the first quarter on a three-yard pass from Pete Scaffidi to Kevin Davis but Vince Salucci blocked the point-after and LFC led 6-0 after one.  The Foresters tacked on a 61-yard pass and run from Scaffidi to Davis less than a minute into the second quarter to make it 13-0 before Mat Kahl booted a 26-yard field goal at the 10:54 mark to make it 13-3.  But Lake Forest scored on a 14-yard pass from Scaffidi to Austin Sobey just over a minute later to lead 20-3 at the break.  Beloit cut into the deficit at 10:24 of the third quarter on a 31-yard Brian Maughn to Derek Carrier scoring pass to make it 20-10.  But LFC answered three minutes later on a one-yard run by Al Mitchell that capped a nine-play, 60-yard drive to go back up 27-10 thru three.  The Buccaneers scored the only points of the fourth quarter on a Maughn to Carrier scoring play covering 57 yards to close to within 27-17 with 8:09 remaining but that's as close as they'd get.  Maughn finished with 211 yards passing while Carrier caught five passes for 118 yards and the two scores.  Terence Steward and Zach Draus led a strong rushing attack for the Bucs with 74 and 73 yards, respectively.  Scaffidi finished with 247 yards thru the air and the three TD tosses.  Davis caught five of the passes for 146 yards.  Mitchell finished with 107 yards on the ground.  The Foresters out-gained the Bucs 404 to 392.  On defense, Salucci finished with ten tackles, eight solo, while Zach Bock had nine.  Luke Butts led LFC with ten tackles and also intercepted a pass.  Aidan Price had seven tackles and an interception, returning it 27 yards and leading to the Foresters second TD in the second quarter.

Last Time vs. the Red Hawks: Beloit battled toe to toe with league-leader Ripon College at Strong Stadium before the Red Hawks used their run game to get some scoreboard separation as the Bucs fell 35-20 on October 16, 2010.  Beloit lit the scoreboard first late in the opening quarter when Brian Maughn hit Derek Carrier on a 12-yard scoring pass.  That lead held up until Ripon capped a drive with a three-yard TD run by KJake Marshall with 14 seconds left in the half to make it 7-all at the break.  The Buccaneers retook the lead five minutes into the second half on Dillon Hess' five-yard TD run.  The kick hit the right upright and Beloit led 13-7.  The Red Hawks grabbed the lead for good with 2:44 remaining in the third quarter, capping a 14-play drive with a one-yard scoring run from Marshall.  They held that 14-13 lead entering the fourth quarter.  A nine-play drive by RC in the first three minutes of the fourth finished with a five-yard scoring run by T.J. Pierce to put Ripon up 21-13 with 12:30 left.  They then made it 28-13 five minutes later on a 39-yard scoring run from Josh Pasek.  The Bucs battled back, pulling to within eight at 28-20 with 6:26 left when Maughn connected with Andrew Christensen on a 31-yard scoring play.  But the Red Hawks ate up another five minutes of the clock, scoring from six yards out on Pierce's second touchdown of the game at the 1:21 mark to regain their advantage at 35-20.  The Bucs drove to the Ripon five on their ensuing possession but turned the ball over on downs with nine seconds left.  Offensively Beloit finished with 192 yards through the air while Ripon ground out 350 yards rushing.  Terence Steward led the Buccaneer rushing attack with 61 yards on 15 carries.  Maughn was 12-29 for 192 yards.  Christensen caught four passes for 85 yards and Carrier five passes for 72 yards.  Pierce and Marshall both finished with 92 yards rushing for Ripon.  Defensively, Tony Baratti had a game-high 14 tackles, 11 solo, while Matt Fogerty had 12, eight solo.  Joe Carmody recovered a fumble to go along with nine tackles.  Jared Anderson had six tackles for RC while Kurt Roeder and Kyle Roy both had five.  Tim Dreger had the only sack of the game.

Up Ahead for the Bucs:  Beloit stays on the road for a second straight week, traveling to Monmouth College for a 1:00 p.m. MWC game.  They then play at Strong Stadium for the final time in 2011 when they host Lawrence University on Senior Day October 29.
