More news about: Nichols

CASTINE, Maine - Sophomore Quillian Respass (Huntington, N.Y.) tallied 536 total yards (331 pass, 205 rush) and eight total touchdowns in Nichols College's 63-52 loss at Maine Maritime Saturday afternoon in New England Football Conference (NEFC) action.

Senior captain Dylan Rimsky (Denville, N.J.) hauled in nine of Respass' 19 completions for 158 yards and one score as the Bison (1-6, 0-5 NEFC) racked up 609 yards of total offense. Respass threw touchdown passes to four different receivers as freshmen Chuck Wooding (Glastonbury, Conn.)Xavier Livingston (Huntington, N.Y.), and Grant Klimek(Toms River, N.J.) each found the endzone.

Respass also tied the program record for most rushing touchdowns in one game (four), which was accomplished by Matt Fox against UMass Boston in 2000 and again by Anthony Smith against Bridgewater State in 2003.

The Mariners (1-5, 1-3 NEFC) were led by Billy Wetherbee and Michael Fahey, who combined for 426 yards and six touchdowns. Wetherbee rushed for a career-high 247 yards on 20 carries and scored twice. Fahey added 178 yards on 21 carries and hit paydirt four times.

Maine Maritime scored on its opening possession. Fahey capped a nine-play, 84-yard drive with a 13-yard sprint. Wetherbee's two-point conversion run gave the Mariners an 8-0 lead. The Bison answered on the ensuing possession when Respass found the endzone on a 26-yard run. Klimek's PAT attempt sailed left to keep the Mariners ahead 8-6.

Both teams traded a pair of scores to make it 24-19 MMA with 5:48 left before the break. Ryan O'Neal put Maine Maritime ahead 16-6 with an eight-yard run before Respass found Klimek on a 13-yard scoring strike.
 
O'Neal found the endzone again on a 13-yard sprint to put the Mariners up 24-14 before Rimsky hauled in a 36-yard touchdown pass from Respass to close the gap to 24-19 with 5:48 left before halftime.
 
Nichols forced a turnover on downs on Maine Maritime's next possession, then marched 75 yards in 1:16 and took its first lead when Respass found Wooding on a 10-yard scoring strike. The Bison converted the two-point play and took a 25-24 lead with 53 seconds left.
 
On second-and-one from the MMA 41, Wetherbee broke loose for a 53-yard run to the Nichols six. Fahey took care of the rest with a six-yard scoring run to give the Mariners a 32-25 halftime lead.

Maine Maritime opened the second half with four unanswered scores to lead 63-25 with 13:08 left in the fourth. Wetherbee scored on runs of 67 and 25, while Fahey reached the endzone on runs of one and four yards.

Nichols finished the game with four unanswered touchdowns. Respass scored on runs of 10, 20 and 26 and hooked up with Livingston on a 44-yard pass.

Defensively, sophomore Connor Richard (Londonderry, N.H.) led the Bison with nine tackles (six solo) while junior Kris Williams (East Hartford, Conn.) notched eight (seven solo). The 63 points are the most allowed by a Nichols team since a loss to Western Connecticut State in the 2000 ECAC Championship (L, 63-10, November 10, 2000).

The Bison play at Curry next Saturday, November 9 at 1 p.m. The Mariners host Salve Regina next Saturday at 1 p.m.
