More news about: William Paterson

WAYNE, N.J. – The William Paterson football team (0-3, 0-2 NJAC) suffered a 41-14 loss to Rowan (3-0, 2-0 NJAC) Sept. 16 during the Pioneers' home opener.

 

Senior Kelvin White, Jr. and junior Kyle Fanning found the end zone for WP. Sophomore linebacker Corey Anthony paced the defense with 10 tackles.

 

The Profs scored on their first possession after back-to back runs of 35 and two yards by junior Anthony Diorio. Senior Tyler Knighton kicked the PAT and Rowan owned a 7-0 advantage 2:11 into the contest.

 

After the two teams exchanged punts, Knighton connected on a 26-yard field goal with 2:52 remaining in the opening period. A 47-yard Jamel Smith punt return less than two minutes later allowed the Profs to finish the quarter with a 17-0 edge.

 

Rowan produced the only points of the second period on a 39-yard Naldy Tavarez-to-J.J. Kulcsar post play 81 seconds before halftime.

 

Diorio opened the third quarter with a 69-yard score (31-0, 14:40), and after turnovers on three consecutive snaps, the Profs converted for three points on a Knighton 34-yard field goal (34-0, 9:58).

 

Junior Cahsim Henry picked up 44 total yards on three consecutive carries, and after a 15-yard Prof personal foul, White found a gap on the left side of the field and ripped off a 26-yard TD. Sophomore Brandon Harley's extra point was good, making it a 34-7 margin with 8:37 to play in the third.

 

Sophomore defensive back Kameron Kennedy picked up a fumble and returned it 52 yards to the end zone, pushing Rowan ahead by a 41-7 count with 41 seconds on the clock in the third period.

 

Freshman linebacker Bryan King recovered a Prof fumble inside the Rowan-15, and four plays later Fanning took a pitch left and crossed the goal line with 2:47 left for the game's final points.

 

Sophomore quarterback Mike Yarosz was 4-for-16 for 42 yards and an interception, while Henry picked up 60 yards on 10 rushing attempts. Four different WP players came down with a reception.

 

Anthony finished with 10 tackles and junior linebacker Charles Faulkner had nine. Sophomore linebacker De'Shaun Morris added 2.0 sacks and a forced fumble.

 

Tavarez went 10-for-17 for 94 yards and a score under center, and Diorio rushed 12 times for 153 yards and two touchdowns. Kulcsar caught seven passes for 75 yards and a TD.

 

Sophomore defensive backs Nate Lanier and Joe DiBara each made six tackles for the Profs.

 

William Paterson will host No. 24 Wesley Saturday, Sept. 23, at 1:00 p.m. at Wightman Stadium.
