Junior DB Will Bain led the Middlebury defense with 16 tackles, including 9 solos.

Kelton closed by saying, "I liked the attitude of my guys. I love my guys. They fight down to the last play all the time. They came out and challenged a really good team and took it down to the wire and we had opportunities down the stretch. Though we are 0-4 and its not going the way we thought it would. We could have won that game very easily today. I'm proud of my guys for their effort."

Next Saturday Williams will host Tufts (0-4) at 1:30 PM on Weston Field.
