Gallaudet improves to 5-0, defeats Norwich for the first time

More news about: Gallaudet

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University defense thwarted Norwich University's last ditch effort to try and extend Saturday's Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) game as the Cadets fumbled near the goal line as time expired and the Bison celebrated a 30-22 victory.

Gallaudet (5-0, 2-0 ECFC) remains undefeated as the Bison continue its best start in program history, as a NCAA Division III program, since 1987 when GU won its first five games to start the season. After several near misses, Gallaudet defeated Norwich for the first time in five tries. All five games in the series have been decided by 10 points or less.

The Bison racked up 375 yards of total offense and rushed for 304 yards, the fourth game this season they have surpassed 300-yards as a team. The team also passed for 71 yards, a season best total. The Bison were 5-for-5 in the red zone and held the ball for 38 minutes, 20 seconds. Gallaudet leads all Division III football teams in time of possession. GU held Norwich to 238 yards of total offense, 108 came on the ground.

Gallaudet trailed briefly, 7-6, in the first quarter and into the start of the second quarter before the Bison regained the lead and scored three consecutive touchdowns before the half.

Sophomore quarterback Quentin Williams (Chesapeake, Va.) scored two touchdowns during the 21-0 second quarter as he plunged in from a yard out and two yards out. Sophomore running back Braxton Baker (Webb City, Mo.) scored from four yards out at the 1:47 mark, as he ran to the corner of the end zone and snuck in right inside the pylon. A quick three-and-out allowed the Bison to get the ball back and score right before the intermission. A 52-yard pass by sophomore quarterback Todd Bonheyo (Frederick, Md.) to senior running back Mike Hantge (Hutchinson, Minn.) set the stage for Williams' second touchdown. GU led 27-7 at the half.

Bonheyo finished the game 3-for-4 for 71 yards and one first quarter interception, which led to Norwich's first touchdown. Bonheyo rushed the ball 13 times for 54 yards.

The Bison added to their lead in the third quarter as GU marched 23 yards on eight plays in over four minutes to set-up sophomore kicker Chase Magsig's (Hudsonville, Mich.) 32-yard field goal. Magsig made 3-of-4 point after attempts in the game.

Gallaudet's defense was stout in the third quarter as it caused four consecutive three-and-out possessions and four punts by Norwich (2-3, 1-1 ECFC). The Cadets converted 4-of-17 third down possessions.

Junior linebacker Gregg McConville (Frederick, Md.) led the Bison with 12 tackles, 2.5 tackles for a loss of seven yards and recorded 1.5 sacks for a loss of six yards. Junior Jaris Alleyne (Waldorf, Md.) added nine tackles and had one pass breakup. Senior Adham Talaat (Springfield, Va.) and freshman Jacy Pedersen (Fremont, Calif.) recorded a sack each and freshman Carneilus Smith (Chesapeake, Va.) had a half sack and three quarterback hurries.
