More news about: Montclair State

Senior running back Chris D'Andrea (Union, NJ / Union) rushed for 193 yards and a touchdown as MSU took over sole possession of first place in the NJAC with the victory.

Montclair State held the Pioneers to just 121 yards of offense in the victory while forcing six turnovers, including four interceptions, two by Chad Faulcon (Cranford, NJ / Cranford).

Punt returner Dan Keegan (Fairfield, NJ / Fairfield) returned a punt 53 yards on the first possession of the game giving MSU great field position at the WPU 30. A 15-yard penalty was tacked on putting the ball at the 13. However, Montclair could not capitalize and then came away with no points as Stanley Howard (Somerset, NJ / Franklin) blocked Jake DelVento's (Island Heights, NJ / Toms River South) 32-yard field goal.

After WP went three-and-out on its next possession, Keegan brought back a punt 44 yards as Montclair began its drive at the Pioneers' 28. This time the Red Hawks would cash in as D'Andrea ran in from a yard out with 5:01 left as Montclair State led 7-0.

The lead grew to 10-0 in the second quarter as DelVento connected from 41 yards out to cap off an 11-play, 56-yard drive as the Red Hawks took that margin into halftime.

In the third quarter, the Red Hawks forced one those turnovers by William Paterson as Sotiris Spilitopoulos (Dover, NJ / Dover) sacked Joe Salame (Lodi, NJ / Lodi) forcing a fumble that was recovered by Jeff Koubek (Howell, NJ / Freehold Township) near midfield.  Montclair drove to the WPU 8 and scored as Drew Cathey (East Rutherford, NJ / Becton Regional) hit Keggan for a touchdown. But the play was nullified by a clipping penalty and the Red Hawks setted for a 43-yard field goal by DelVento for a 13-0 lead with 4:12 left in the third.

Iachetta accounted for the final score as he picked off a Salame pass and returned it for the touchdown with 3:46 left.
