More news about: Sewanee

SEWANEE, Tenn. (Oct. 1, 2016)  Led by quarterback P.J. Settles, Southern Athletic Association (SAA) rival Rhodes compiled a conference record 683 yards of total offense en route to a 36-21 win over the Sewanee football team, Saturday, at historic Hardee-McGee Field at Harris Stadium.

The win is the fifth straight for the Lynx in the long-time series. Rhodes has now won the Orgill Cup every season since 2012.

Settles was outstanding as the Rhodes signal caller. The athletic quarterback finished with 384 passing yards and two touchdowns to go along with 108 rushing yards. His favorite target on the afternoon was all-conference receiver Brandon Box. Box finished with eight catches for 190 yards and a score.

Another big key for Rhodes was the play of tailback Roc Sherrell. The quick tailback finished with 162 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Sherrell also finished with one catch that went for 31 yards for another score.

Early on, Sewanee played well. After the Tigers received the opening kickoff, Sewanee marched 65 yards on seven plays. With 11:29 left in the first quarter, freshman quarterback Sam Hearn scrambled around the left side for the game's first touchdown.

Rhodes answered back on its first drive when Sherrell scored from 27 yards out.

The Lynx then scored four more times before Sewanee finally found the end zone again with 10:13 left in the third quarter. After taking advantage of a number of Rhodes miscues, Hearn ran for a one-yard touchdown.

Unfortunately, Kyle Edmiston answered for Rhodes with a pair of field goals to put the game away.

Sewanee's final touchdown came late in the fourth quarter when freshman quarterback Dane Quinn found the end zone with a seven-yard run.

As a team, Sewanee finished with 235 yards of total offense. Hearn finished with 79 passing yards to go along with 47 yards on the ground.

Micah Maes and Tony Dykes led the Tiger defense with seven tackles each.

Sewanee will now take a week off before returning to action after its bye week with a 1:00 p.m. game at Washington University, October 15th.
