Eph head coach Aaron Kelton was encouraged with today's flow of the game noting the difference in the game was, "not being able to make a play when we needed to." Kelton praised Adam Marske's ability to manage the game and get first downs. 

On the day the Adam Marske connected on 28 of 49 passes for 276 yards and one TD, while Middlebury's McCallum Foote hit on 20 of 37 for 247 yards and two TDs. Foote was intercepted once.

Sophomore DL James Howe and sophomore LB James O'Grady led the Eph defense with 8 and 7 tackles, respectively.  Coach Kelton was also pleased with freshman DB Mike Davis and freshman DB Justin Harris' play today. Both made big plays throughout the game that shifted the momentum Williams's way.

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.
