LANCASTER, Pa. – Two turnovers proved to be the difference as Gettysburg handed Franklin & Marshall a 28-14 defeat in the Centennial Conference (CC) football season finale for both squads. F&M ends its season with a 3-7 overall, 3-6 CC record while the Bullets closed out 2011 with 6-4, 6-3 CC mark. 

On the seventh play of F&M's first series John Harrison threw a backwards pass toLamont Jackson which bounce off Jackson's hands and was recovered by Larry DelViscio at the F&M 20. The Bullets capitalized four plays later when Kyle Whitmoyer connected with John Pesce on a five-yard pass to give Gettysburg a 7-0 lead. 

F&M answered on its ensuing possession with a 94-yard drive.  Jackson racked up 54 yards on four carries on the drive; with the last carry resulting in a seven-yard score to even the game at 7-7.

After a three-and-out by the Bullets, F&M was poised to strike again, driving down to the Gettysburg six with a first-and-goal. Two plays later, Hugo Nolasco picked off Harrison at the two. The Bullets needed just eight plays to drive 98 yards which was capped off by a Freddy Caruso four-yard run to give the Gettysburg a 14-7 edge early in the second quarter and into the halftime break. 

Gettysburg went up 21-7 on its opening drive in the second half. Whitmoyer hit John Pesce for an 11-yard strike to cap of an 11-play, 71-yard drive. 

F&M responded on its next possession to cut the deficit to 21-14. The Diplomats marched 60 yards down the field on nine plays and Harrison hit John Kaschak for a nine yard score. 

The Bullets sealed the game with a 94-yard drive in fourth quarter that ended with a one-yard run by Ted Delia.
