More news about: Gallaudet

WASHINGTON - After stumbling out of the gate, Gallaudet University picked itself up and scored three consecutive touchdowns against Union (N.Y.) College to take its first lead of the game on a warm Saturday afternoon before 604 at Hotchkiss Field. The visiting Dutchmen answered with back-to-back touchdown drives to survive, 31-21, in the first meeting between these non-conference football foes.

Gallaudet sophomore quarterback Timel Benton (Columbia, S.C.) had a career game as he completed 12 of 23 passes for 224 yards and two touchdowns, all career-high totals. Benton's favorite target was senior slot Joell Dixon (Brandywine, Md.) who caught three passes for 132 yards and two touchdowns. Benton connected with Dixon on a 72-yard touchdown pass late in the second quarter to cut the Union lead to three, 17-14, right before the half.

In the third quarter, Benton and Dixon connected again on a 40-yard pass, down the left side of the field, as Dixon kept his eye on the ball and hauled it in for the score at the 3:55 mark. That gave Gallaudet (0-3) its first lead of the game at 21-17.

Union (2-1) started the ensuing drive at midfield after a strong return by Derek Khnaizir (three returns, 98 yards) that set-up a six-play, 50-yard drive. Dutchmen quarterback Nick Cascione (13 of 20, 169 yards) hit Packy Brown (six receptions, 44 yards) for the second time in the game for a touchdown. The pair connected on the first drive of the game. Union took a 24-21 lead into the fourth quarter.
