PSAC Results for october 20

PSAC East

Shippensburg 42
Wext Chester 24

Kutztown 59
East Stroudsburg 33

LIU Post 20
Millersville 15

Bloomsburg 27
Cheyney 13

PSAC West

California 41
Gannon 0

Clarion 30
Lock Haven 28

Slippery Rock 38
Edinboro 31

IUP 31
Mercyhurst 13

In the East, Shippensburg came back from a 21-0 deficit after the first period and defeated a stumbling, bumbling West Chester team by a score of 42-24. West Chester muffed three sure interceptions, took any number of foolish penalties, and demonstrated a complete lack of any imagination with its play calling. Bloomsburg also did not have a banner day, but the Huskies did manage to beat Cheyney 27-13. Well, next weekend the PSAC East title will be decided as the two unbeatens--Bloomsburg and Shippensburg--clash down at Shippensburg. Who know what the outcome will be? I think I know who will win, but I am not saying so just yet.

In the PSAC West, IUP gave California a helping hand by beating Mercyhurst. Mercyhurst still has a chance to grab a share of the PSAC West title, but they will have to beat highly ranked California at home when the Vulcans come for a visit in the near future.

Getting back to the PSAC East, I attended the Shippensburg--West Chester game; and I must say I was very disappointed by the lack of discipline on the part of the Golden Rams by their taking a number of personal foul penalties at crucial moments in the game which prolonged Shippensburg drives and led to at least one TD. Furthermore, WCU's play calling was anything but imaginative. My opinion was voiced by several others sitting near me in the stadium. Almost all of WCU's running plays were to the left side of the field. The tendency was quite obvious. It was really like watching two games within one. The first quarter was all West Chester, and the rest of the game belonged to Shippensburg. Get ready, Bloomsburg Huskies! You have a major challenge facing you next weekend down in southern Pennsylvania. Husky picked 7 of 8 games correctly to advance his record to 49-15.

Games Involving Two Ranked Teams

#23 Hillsdale defeated #14 Saginaw Valley 34-17 in the GLIAC and #13 Missouri Western crushed #8 Pittsburg State 63-14 in MIAA action. Hard to believe! Husky missed both picks and his record sinks to the depths of 6-13 for such games. Rankings seem to mean nothing this year.

PSAC Players of the Week (Week 8)

Sunday, October 21, 2012

Slippery Rock's Jeff Thompson (Defensive) alongside Clarion's Ben Fiscus (Offensive) were selected as the West's PSAC Football Athletes of the Week for their performances in their team's victories.

In the east, Kevin Morton (Offensive) of Kutztown and Jake Metz (Defensive) of Shippensburg were named the East's PSAC Football Athletes of the Week for their performances on Saturday.

PSAC Athletes of the Week - Oct. 21
(Week 8)

PSAC West Defensive Athlete of the Week
Jeff Thompson, Slippery Rock
DE, Sr., Clairton, Pa./Clairton

Jeff Thompson led a Slippery Rock defensive effort that sacked Edinboro quarterback Cody Harris nine times, just one sack shy of the school record set in 1991 vs. California. Thompson registered 11 total tackles on the day, including five solo take downs. He chased Harris down on three occasions for a total loss of 23 yards, and also charted three quarterback hurries. One of Thompson's sacks came at first and goal for Edinboro on the Slippery Rock's nine yard line. His six-yard sack pushed Edinboro back so the Fighting Scots couldn't score at the end of the half to allow SRU to head into the locker room holding a 16-3 lead. Thompson's defense held the 2011 All-PSAC-West QB to a .470 completion rate in the 38-31 Rock victory after he entered the game with a .700 completion rate.



PSAC West Offensive Athlete of the Week
Ben Fiscus, Clarion
QB, Jr., Indiana, Pa./Indiana

Ben Fiscus completed 26-of-42 passes for 324 yards and three touchdowns to lead Clarion to a 30-28 come-from-behind win at Lock Haven. His three touchdowns passes were crucial - but none more important than the 3-yard game-winning touchdown to tight end Antony Becoate on the last play of the game. Fiscus led Clarion on a 90-yard, 12-play drive in the final 1:21 of the game. He completed a fourth-down pass to keep the drive alive, followed it with 24 and 32-yard passes in the last 30 seconds of the game to setup the game winning touchdown. His 32-yard pass to Aaron Barlow on the next to the last play was certainly a thriller, followed by the final play which saw Fiscus change directions four times before firing the game winner.


PSAC East Offensive Athlete of the Week
Kevin Morton, Kutztown University
QB, Sr., Abington, Pa./Abington

Kevin Morton set the Kutztown school record for passing yards for the second straight week with 490 passing yards to lead the Golden Bears to a 59-33 win over East Stroudsburg. Just seven days after his 479-yard performance that set the school record for passing yards in a game against Shippensburg, Morton threw for 490 yards and three touchdowns. He was nearly flawless going 35-of-42, an .860 completion rate, without tossing a single interception. Morton also found his way into the end zone for his own touchdown in the second quarter with 3:53 remaining in the half when he kept the ball for a 16-yard rushing touchdown.

PSAC East Defensive Athlete of the Week
Jake Metz, Shippensburg
DE, Jr., Harleysville/Souderton

Jake Metz had nine tackles in Shippensburg's 42-24 win over West Chester. He recorded two solo stops and seven assisted take downs while also registering two tackles for loss that added up to 12 yards. Metz recorded his ninth sack of the year, just one shy of the Shippensburg single season record set by Barry Johnson (1977), Ed Brown (1981) and Rob Davis (1991). Metz also broke-up a West Chester pass attempt. Metz played a vital role in the Raider's shutting out the Rams in the second half, as SU outscored West Chester 42-3 over the final 44:44 of the contest.

PSAC Schedule for Week 9 (October 27) Husky's picks listed below.

10/27/2012 7 p.m. * Gannon Lock Haven Lock Haven, Pa. Live Audio

Edinboro sabotages Mercyhurst's chances for a first place tie in the PSAC West, Shippensburg knocks off the highly ranked Huskies and wraps up the PSAC East, West Chester takes out its frustration on Cheyney (Too late Rams!), LIU Post wins at home, IUP beats Clarion, SRU falls to Cal at home (Vulcans won't lose twice at home.), Kutztown crushes Millersville, and Lock Haven at home breaks it losing streak. Assuming I am correct and Ship and Cal win their conferences, one of the questions remaining is whether anybody else from the PSAC besides California and Shippensburg will qualify for the playoffs in Super Region I. The other question is who will win the overall PSAC championship on November 10th. It will also be interesting to see where the ranked PSAC teams find themselves in the polls this week. I suspect Shippensburg will advance. Bloomsburg might drop a bit based on their less than stellar performance against a wek Cheyney team. Cal and IUP will probably remain about where they were ranked last week. Lastly, I will not be post the d2football.com or the AFCA polls untill Wednesday or Thursday, as I am off on a two bass fishing trip.

Junior Jake Metz Named PSAC Eastern Division Defensive Player of the Week
Metz was second on the team with nine tackles, including two for loss, with one pass breakup
By: Bill Morgal, Sports Information Director

10/21/2012 12:32:00 PM

Junior Jake Metz was named the PSAC Eastern Division Defensive Player of the Week on Sunday afternoon by the league office after a nine-tackle performance in a 42-24 come-from-behind victory at West Chester that improved the No. 13 Red Raiders to 8-0.

Metz had two tackles for loss in the game and was one of three defensive linemen – along with seniors Mark Kahlil Smith and Saeed Khateeb – who had a sack in Saturday’s game.

Overall, SU recorded eight tackles for loss as a team.

In addition to his nine tackles (two solo, seven assisted), Metz also had a pass breakup. His season sack total is now nine, leaving him one shy of tying the Shippensburg single-season record set by Barry Johnson (1977), Ed Brown (1981) and Rob Davis (1991).

Overall, Metz played a vital role in the Red Raiders shutting out the Golden Rams in the second half, as SU outscored West Chester 42-3 over the final 44:44 of the contest.

Shippensburg also did not commit a turnover in Saturday’s game while forcing four of its own.

The Red Raiders will host No. 4 Bloomsburg at 1 p.m. Saturday from SU Student Association Field at Seth Grove Stadium. More details about the game will be announced early on in the week. Shippensburg is planning a “RED OUT” and encouraging all who attend to wear red in support of the football team

West Chester Falls To No. 13 Shippensburg, 42-24

WEST CHESTER, Pa. - No. 13 Shippensburg scored 21 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to come from behind and defeat host West Chester on a Homecoming Weekend at John A. Farrell Stadium Saturday.

Rondell White went over 100 yards rushing for the fifth time this year and now has 1,000 yards rushing on the season. However, Shippensburg QB Zach Zulli threw for 345 yards and five TDs to lead the Red Raiders (8-0, 5-0 PSAC East).

West Chester (5-3, 3-2) held the nation’s top-ranked offense to just 27 yards on three possessions during a scoreless third quarter. However, the Golden Rams were shut out in the second half as the Red Raiders completed their comeback in the final 15 minutes.

The Golden Rams scored a touchdown on each of their first three possessions Saturday to jump out in front 21-0. White raced to paydirt from 17 yards out, capping West Chester’s first drive. Tom Shrader then snared an aerial from Mike Mattei (18 of 28 for 275 yards) and galloped 77 yards for a score three minutes later. Jim Kelly then caught a 42-yard pass from Mattei in the first minute of the second quarter to put the Rams well in control.

After two punts and a missed field goal on its first three possessions, Shippensburg answered West Chester’s trifecta with three straight TDs in the second quarter to tie the game with 1:10 remaining before halftime. Trevor Harman (5 catches, 81 yards) grabbed two of his game-high four touchdown passes during that spurt.

West Chester place-kicker Shawn Leo booted a 40-yard field goal with :01 left in the half to give the Golden Rams the lead heading into the break.

Zulli, who entered the game ranked second in Division II in passing, finished 29-for-49 for 345 yards and five TDs. He did not throw an interception. Though, West Chester defensive players dropped three would-be picks on the day.

Ronell Williams finished with a career-high 18 tackles on the day. Fellow linebacker Mike Culbreath had a career-best 14 stops.

Jim Kelly caught seven passes for 113 yards and a score for West Chester in the loss.

West Chester concludes its home slate next Saturday at 12 p.m. against Cheyney on Senior Day at John A. Farrell Stadium. West Chester University will honor the senior members of its football team, cheerleading squad and incomparable marching band before its game with the cross-county rival Wolves.

Tuck Tops 200 Yards Again as No. 20 IUP Wears Down Mercyhurst for 31-13 Victory

Harvie Tuck is averaging 214 yards over his last three games
Ryan Rebholz, Sports Information Director
10/20/2012 7:10:00 PM

Box Score

INDIANA, PA – Harvie Tuck (Akron, OH/St. Vincent-St. Mary) ran for 231 yards and two touchdowns as 20th-ranked IUP scored 24 second half points en route to a 31-13 victory over Mercyhurst in Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) West football action on Saturday at George P. Miller Stadium.

It was the fourth time this year that Tuck topped the 200-yard plateau as Division II's leading rusher now has 1,404 yards for the season. He also went over 4,000 career yards during the game and is currently second all-time at IUP with 4,085 rushing yards.

With the win, the Crimson Hawks go to 7-1 on the season, with a 4-1 record in the PSAC West. The loss drops Mercyhurst to 6-2, also 4-1 in the division.

Down 13-7 at the half, IUP wasted no time getting things going in the third quarter as Mike Box (Lawrenceville, GA/Collins Hill) hooked up with Terrill Barnes (Gettysburg/Gettysburg) on the fourth play for a 42-yard touchdown pass down the left sideline. Barnes had to go up for it, out-leaping the defender before beating him in a foot race down the sideline for the score.

With the Crimson Hawks holding a 14-13 lead, Mercyhurst responded with a long 17-play drive that saw the Lakers convert a fourth-and-three at the IUP 31-yard line. Four plays later Mercyhurst would again go for it on fourth down but the pass from Anthony Vendemia to Ozzie Lumpkin fell incomplete.

Fireworks came on IUP's first drive of the fourth quarter, as the Crimson Hawks took over at their own 20-yard line after forcing a Mercyhurst punt. On the first play Tuck would dash off left tackle for 40 yards to the Lakers 40-yard line before De'Antwan Williams (Woodbridge, VA/Woodbridge) matched the run with a 40-yarder of his own, this one going for a touchdown.

Lasting just those two plays, the drive went 80 yards, taking a coincidental 40 seconds off the game clock. The extra point from Brett Ullman (Baltimore, MD/Perry Hall) gave IUP a 21-13 lead with 10:01 left in the game.

After a Mercyhurst three-and-out, the Crimson Hawks put together another scoring drive as Tuck rushed for 44 yards on five carries as Ullman connected on a 30-yard field goal to put IUP on top 24-13 with 5:12 remaining.

The final score of the day came on the next IUP drive, as Tuck bolted 20 yards for a score on a third-and-two play with 1:53 left. The run capped off a great second half for Tuck, who ran 14 times for 154 yards and that score in the third and fourth quarters combined.

Tuck had four runs of over 20 yards, along with a pair of 18-yard dashes, and also added a 49-yard reception in the first quarter.

The Lakers took the lead in the opening quarter on their second drive, going 65 yards in 12 plays as Brandon Brown-Dukes ran it in from one yard out for the touchdown. The ensuing extra point try would get blocked by Carl Thornton (Beaver Falls/Beaver Falls) as the score stayed at 6-0 with 6:57 to go in the first.

IUP took the lead on a 21-yard touchdown run by Tuck on the very next drive, a score that was set up by his 49-yard reception three plays earlier. Mercyhurst got back on top on the very first play of the second quarter as Vendemia scrambled and flipped over the top for a four-yard touchdown to make it 13-7.

Brown-Dukes had the most successful day for an opposing rusher against the IUP defense, running 30 times for 134 yards and a touchdown. The Lakers ended up with 143 rushing yards against a team that entered the game giving up less than 53 yards per game.

Vendemia finished 10-of-23 for 125 yards through the air, getting picked by Johnny Franco (Altoona/Tyrone) in the first quarter and was sacked twice. His top target was Paris Bruner who had three catches for 42 yards.

Averaging 390 yards and 34 points entering Saturday, the Lakers were limited by the IUP defense to 268 yards and 13 points, gaining only 13 first downs on the day.

IUP ran for 290 yards with Williams running nine times for 68 yards and a score to add to Tuck's total. Box finished 7-of-14 for 126 yards and a touchdown through the air, connecting with Barnes three times for 61 yards and that score.

Defensively Alexander Berdahl (Ashburn, VA/Bishop O'Connell) led IUP with 12 total tackles while Carl Fleming (Reisterstown, MD/Franklin) added 10 on the day. Chris Brown (Altoona/Bishop Guilfoyle) stepped up with seven tackles, including two behind the line-of-scrimmage while Shane Meisner (Greensburg/Hempfield ) and Thornton combined for IUP's two sacks.

The big win for the Crimson Hawks comes in advance of the release of season's first regional rankings on Monday. Bloomsburg and Shippensburg - which both have perfect 8-0 records - are expected to be ranked high, as is 7-1 California (PA).

IUP starts the final stretch of the regular season next weekend at home against Clarion (4-4, 2-3).

THIS IS AMAZING

#16 GRIFFONS GO APE IN THE JUNGLE WITH 63-14 WIN
Griffons score 56 unanswered points in rout
MWSU Athletic Media Relations
10/20/2012 5:23:00 PM


Michael Hill celebrates after scoring his fourth touchdown of the day in Saturday's 63-14 win at Pittsburg State

Box Score Season Stats | Career Stats

PITTSBURG, Kan. -- To say the Griffons upset the Gorillas Saturday afternoon would be an understatement.

No. 16 Missouri Western used 56 unanswered points to defeat No. 7 Pittsburg State 63-14. Michael Hill ran for 116 yards and Travis Partridge countered with 213 yards through the air. Hill had three scores on the ground and Partridge had four touchdowns.

Pittsburg came out ready on its first drive. After forcing Missouri Western to a 3-and-out, the Gorillas drove 87 yards on 11 plays, and quarterback Anthony Abenoja connected with wide-out John Brown on a 6-yard touchdown pass to cap the drive.

Behind 7-0, MWSU faked a reverse to Tarrell Downing and led Hill down the flat for an open 48-yard touchdown reception.

The Griffons defense then stopped the Gorillas for the majority of the game after the 7-7 tie. David Bass recorded three sacks, and also scored a touchdown on a tipped pass that ended up in the defensive end's hands. He took it 55 yards for the score to put the Griffons ahead 21-7.

Pittsburg couldn't do much offensively, and the Griffons continued to score points to take a 42-7 halftime lead.

Missouri Western eventually stretched its lead to 56-7, marking eight unanswered scores before Pittsburg put another touchdown in to make it 56-16. Raphael Spencer scored on a 12-yard run to end the game with MWSU on top 63-14.

Brandon Wright and Derek Libby both score on long receptions, as the Griffons found their downfield game Saturday.

The Gorillas ended with game with five turnovers, including three on downs. Brown finished with a game-high 13 grabs and 153 yards with the one score. It was the worst home loss for Pittsburg since a 63-0 loss to Tulsa on Oct. 31, 1914.

Up Next: Missouri Western goes back on the road in the MIAA to play undefeated Emporia State Thursday night in Emporia, Kan.

First-Place Hillsdale Chargers Make Statement

Final 1 2 3 4 T
Saginaw Valley (6-2) 7 3 7 0 17
Hillsdale (6-2) 7 3 14 10 34

October 20, 2012 – Last week, the Hillsdale College football team faced the GLIAC's best rushing offense and came out of Ferris State University with a victory. This week, the team was tested by the GLIAC's top passing offense. Test passed again.

The Chargers played an outstanding second half on both sides of the ball and defeated 15th-ranked Saginaw Valley State University 34-17 before more than 1,700 fans at Frank "Muddy" Waters Stadium Saturday afternoon. Hillsdale improves to 6-2 overall and its 6-1 GLIAC record gives it sole possession of first place in the ultra-tough GLIAC North Division.

Next week, the Chargers play their home finale against longtime rival Grand Valley State University on homecoming.

This back-and-forth contest was dominated by Hillsdale in the second half, as the Chargers outscored the Cardinals 24-7 and possessed the ball for nearly 12 minutes in the fourth quarter. The defense got big stops on third and fourth down, and did an excellent job of corralling SVSU's productive and big-play passing game.

The turning point in the game came late in the third quarter. Hillsdale stopped the Cardinals deep in their own territory. SVSU was then flagged for two personal foul penalties on the subsequent punt return, giving Hillsdale 30 additional yards of field position. One play later, senior QB Anthony Mifsud lofted a perfect pass to senior H-back Cam White down the left sidelines for a 25-yard touchdown play that gave Hillsdale a 24-17 lead, one it would never relinquish.

Senior placekicker Colin McGreevy had a terrific game kicking, delivering two key field goals for the Chargers at different points in the game. His 36-yard field goal gave Hillsdale a 10-7 lead early in the second quarter. McGreevy then booted a 33-yarder one possession after White's touchdown catch to extend Hillsdale's lead to 27-17. McGreevy's second kick was crucial, because it gave the Chargers a two-score advantage with less than 10 minutes left in the game, thus allowing Hillsdale's defense to zone in on the SVSU offense.

Hillsdale's defense held the GLIAC's best passing attack to 117 yards below its average for the season, limiting the Cardinals to just 195 yards passing in the game. Cornerbacks Daniel Pittman and Ben Karaba each did a great job of open-field tackling, limiting the Cardinals' ability to get yards after the catch.

Junior LB Brett Pasche had a do-it-all game for Hillsdale, with 12 total tackles, one pass break-up, one quarterback hurry, and he blocked an SVSU field goal attempt in the first half that would have given the Cardinals a 13-10 lead at the time.

Linebacker Steven Embry had 11 total tackles, while Pittman led the Chargers with six solo stops and 10 in all. Linebacker Devin Moynihan, last week's GLIAC Defensive Player of the Week, recovered his third fumble in two weeks in an important sequence early in the game. Saginaw Valley State fumbled a punt return, and Moynihan pounced on the loose ball for the recovery at the Cardinals' 12-yard-line. Two plays later, senior RB Joe Glendening produced the first points of the game with a touchdown from 11 yards out.

Glendening powered through a big and physical Cardinal defense for 121 yards on 26 carries, including the first-quarter touchdown where he carried two defenders with him. Sophomore Issac Spence filled the role of "closer" admirably for the Chargers from his running back position, gaining 45 yards on 10 carries including a game-icing touchdown run in the fourth quarter.

Mifsud set a career-high for pass completion percentage, going 12-for-14 for 196 yards and two touchdowns. Sophomore WR Brett Miller, who celebrated a birthday Friday night, delivered two huge catches for the Chargers, good for 78 yards. White had four receptions for 58 yards and a score, while junior Andrew Mott hauled in a perfectly-thrown and executed 29 yard touchdown pass.

Hillsdale has now defeated Saginaw Valley State in each of the past three years, the first time that's happened since 1991-93.

A second straight loss from Pittsburg State (Kan.) caused a shakeup in the AFCA Division II Coaches’ Top 25 Poll from No. 7 on down, but the top six teams remained unchanged. Colorado State-Pueblo held onto the No. 1 spot with 24 first-place votes, followed by Winston-Salem State (N.C.) at No. 2 with six first-place votes. New Haven (Conn.), Bloomsburg (Pa.), Northwest Missouri State and Ashland (Ohio) round out the top six.

Missouri Western State rebounded from its first loss of the season to upset then-No. 7t Pittsburg State, 63-14, moving the Griffons up four spots to No. 12. The Gorillas dropped 15 places to No. 22 with the loss. Hillsdale (Mich.) beat then-No. 15 Saginaw Valley State (Mich.), 34-17, and jumped back into the poll at No. 24. Also entering the poll for the first time since 2009 is Charleston (W.Va.). The Golden Eagles, ranked No. 25, recorded a 27-14 victory over West Liberty (W.Va.) to move its record to 7-1.

There are four Top 25 matchups this week, with the first being a Top 10 battle as No. 4 Bloomsburg travels to No. 10 Shippensburg (Pa.) for a pivotal Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference contest. The other matchups feature No. 5 Northwest Missouri State traveling to No. 16t Washburn (Kan.), No. 15 Emporia State (Kan.) hosting No. 12 Missouri Western State and No. 23 Grand Valley State (Mich.) traveling to No. 24 Hillsdale.

As one can see, the people in the know in Super Region I are aware that Shippensburg is grossly underrated in natonal polls. I am quite suspicious of those rankings in Super Region II. Super Region III is also a muddle by my way of thinking, as the teams from the MIAA are clearly the best in the Super Region. I have no issues with the rankings in Super Region IV. (Where have you gone Grand Valley State?)

Games Involving Two nationally Ranked Teams

In the MIAA, Missouri Western (12) defeats Emporia State (18). In the PSAC, Bloomsburg (5) LOSES to Shippensburg (13)--It won't even be close. In the MIAA, Northwest Missouri (3) whips Washburn (17). There you have my picks, such as they are. I'll be amazed if I get two of three correct, as rankings mean nothing this year--like I said earlier. Hoping for the best, except in the case of Bloomsburg-Shippensburg. I hope the Huskies prove me wrong. Well, it is into nitty-gritty time now that the super regional rankings are being posted. Incidentally, sometimes the super regional rankings can indeed be a bit "screwy", but I think they are on target in the Super-Region I. Bloom has to beat Shippensburg to make the pollsters look bad. Don't think it is going to happen. Ship is the real deal! Possession is nine tenths of the law. If Bloom can exercise that basic tenet, then they have a chance. Nor can they play careless, unimaginative, un-opportunistic football like West Chester did against Shippensburg whereby the Golden Rams gave the game away to Ship. To tell you the truth, as a Bloom fan, I will be afraid to look at the results of the game on Saturday. I just hope the Huskies aren't humiliated. That's how good I think Shippensburg is. Go Huskies and make me look bad!

I am still shocked over Missouri Western's lop sided win over Pittsburg State. Mo Western lost at home to Missouri Southern State, though that was a rivalry game.
I wonder if two of these MIAA teams will reach the semifinals.

Ollie, so am I! I couldn't believe that score. I picked Pittsburg State to win. Like I have said, the rankings can be thrown to the winds this year. Incidentally, I still think the MIAA is the strongest Div II conference in the nation. Too bad only one team will be able to advance to the national semi-finals due to the way the playoffs are structured. The Div II playoffs will indeed have a different look this year with some "new" teams. The playoffs ARE not that far off. Frankly, I see NWMSU as the team to beat in that Super Region. thanks for posting. Ciao!

Last night, #!2 Missouri Western defeated #18 Emporia State by a score of 57-28 thereby shattering Emporia State's hopes for advancing in the national rankings. This team from Missouri Western is shaping up as a team to be reckoned with. Husky finally got one right. His record for such games moves up to 7-13. Well he also got it right with Shippensburg beating Bloomsburg 49-42 and NWMSU blowing out
Washburn to up his record to 9-13. Husky might get back to .500 before the year is out :D. It will be Ship against Cal (MAYBE) in the overall PSAC championship game. Cal was upset by SRU yesterday and are now in a mathematical three-way tie for first place with IUP and Mercyhurst. The question is will anybody else from the PSAC, besides the two conference winners, make the Div II playoffs in Super Region I.

Shippensburg won the big showdown in the PSAC East today over Bloomsburg by a score of 49-42. Bloomsburg made a gallant comeback to tie the game at 42 after trailing 35-7 at halftime. Once again, it has become evident that there are no good defensive teams in the PSAC, and I think it is high time that some PSAC coaches start looking for some stellar defensive players when recruiting. Congratulations to Ship, and good fortune to them in the PSAC championship game in two weeks against the team from the PSAC West. I hasten to add, although Ship has a super offense; when they get up against the likes of Winston-Salem--or whomever outside of the PSAC-- in the post-season, the Red Raiders may find learn what it is like to play against a good defense and things may not be quite so easy. They escaped today, but today may have been their last escape; as the PSAC West champ is waiting in the wings. Kudos also to Bloom for making a game of it after trailing 35-7. Way to go, Huskies. See you guys next week for the West Chester game. Huskies are still in the Div II playoff hunt. Needless to say, this has been a tough day for me, who is a lifetime Huskies fan. I'll get back to you with all the PSAC results later tonight. There are some late starting games. It looks like I picked all the games involving nationally ranked teams correctly. Wow! I finally did it. I guess some good things come with the bad. Ciao!

Another Important PSAC Game

Slippery Rock upset first place California in the PSAC West today 28-26. This result means that IUP could now win the PSAC West, should Cal lose to Mercyhurst next weekend up in Erie. If both IUP and Mercyhurst win next weekend, they will both end up with the same record in the PSAC West; but IUP beat Mercyhurst earlier this season which fact I would assume would serve as the tiebreaker. If Cal beats Mercyhurst and IUP beats Clarion, I would assume Cal's early season win over IUP would serve to give Cal the West title. It's all over in the East, as Shippensburg's win over Bloomsburg wins them the title. The question now is whether Bloom can come back and beat West Chester and Slippery Rock and gain a spot in the Div II super regional playoffs. As a result of the loss today, Bloomsburg will drop from a sure spot in the playoffs to being "on the bubble". Another loss to WCU or SRU will most likely eliminate the Huskies. The same is true for California. Here are all of today's PSAC results. Right now I see Winston-Salem, Shippensburg, New Haven, maybe a team from the WVIAC, and two other teams to be chosen making the playoffs. It's an interesting scenario. There is much at stake next weekend in the games between Bloom and West Chester and Cal and Mercyhurst.

PSAC East

Shippensburg 49
Bloomsburg 42

West Chester 59
Cheyney 14

East Sroudsburg 45
LIU Post 37

Kutztown 59
Millersville 3

PSAC West

Slippery Rock 28
California 26

Mercyhurst 24
Edinboro 21

IUP 45
Clarion 0

Gannon 13
Lock Haven 7

Husky broke even on his picks going 4-4. His record is now 53-19. Next weeek's PSAC schedule is as follows:

11/3/2012 12 p.m. * California (Pa.) Mercyhurst Erie, Pa. Live Stats Details
11/3/2012 12:00 p.m. * Indiana (Pa.) Gannon Erie, Pa. Live Stats Live Video Live Audio Details
11/3/2012 1:00 p.m. * West Chester Bloomsburg Bloomsburg, PA Details
11/3/2012 1 p.m. * Edinboro Clarion Clarion, Pa. Details
11/3/2012 1:00 PM * East Stroudsburg Millersville Millersville, PA Live Stats Live Video Live Audio Details
11/3/2012 1 p.m. * Lock Haven Slippery Rock Mihalik-Thompson Stadium Details
11/3/2012 1 PM * Cheyney Shippensburg Shippensburg, PA Live Stats Details
11/3/2012 1:05 p.m. * LIU Post Kutztown Kutztown, Pa. Details

Husky's PSAC Picks for November 3. I see Mercyhurst over Cal in a mild upset, IUP destroys Gannon, Bloomsburg at home edges West Chester, Edinboro wins over Clarion, East Stroudsburg has no trouble with Millersville, Slippery Rock rolls over Lock Haven, Shippensburg crushes Cheyney, and Kutztown wins at home over LIU Post. Hope everybody gets through the great storm well and intact.

Huskies Drop Wild One to Shippensburg

10/27/2012

SHIPPENSBURG – In a battle of nationally ranked, unbeaten teams 10th-ranked Shippensburg University scored with five seconds left to knock of 4th-ranked Bloomsburg University, 49-42, on Saturday in a PSAC (Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference) Eastern Division matchup in front of over 7,100 fans at Seth Grove Stadium.

With the win, Shippensburg improves to 9-0 and wins the PSAC Eastern Division title with a 6-0 record. Bloomsburg falls to 8-1, 5-1 in the PSAC East.

Bloomsburg, which trailed 35-7 at halftime, tied the score at 42-all with 2:39 to play on a 52-yard touchdown pass from Tim Kelly (Camp Hill/Cedar Cliff) to Ryan Dickerson (Harleysville/Souderton).

The Red Raiders though got the ball back at their own 17-yard line and marched down the field with quarterback Zach Zulli completing a two-yard scoring pass to Bryan Barley for the game winning points. A key play on the drive was a holding call on Bloomsburg on a third-and-10 play when Zulli's pass had gone incomplete.

Bloomsburg had one last play, but Kelly's pass was incomplete ending the game.

“We played very well on all sides of the ball in the second half, and that was the only way we were going to be able to bring this back,” head coach Danny Hale said. “We did everything we needed to do and created turnovers against a team that doesn't turn the ball over very much.”

Junior running back Franklyn Quiteh (Tobyhanna/Pocono Mountain West) finished with 31 carries for 268 yards and four scores, while Kelly was 11-for-27 passing for 158 yards and a touchdown. Dickerson finished with five catches for 108 yards and one score.

Defensively, Jarrett Pidgeon (Barnegat, NJ/Southern Regional) had 13 tackles, while Terrell Oglesby (Philadelphia/Northeast Catholic) had eight tackles. Both seniors brought down an interception as Pidgeon took his 39 yards for a touchdown.

“We're all tough kids here and we pride ourselves in not quitting,” Pidgeon said. “Looking ahead, we just need to play every game like we did in the second half today. Games like this are the reason we come to Bloomsburg.”

For Shippensburg, Zulli finished 35-for-60 with two interceptions for 496 yards and seven touchdowns and also rushed for 80 yards. Trevor Harman caught seven passes for 172 yards and three scores.

Quiteh opened the second half with a 67-yard touchdown run, moving him into fifth place in the PSAC in career rushing yards to pass former Red Raider John Kuhn and pulling the Huskies to within 35-14 with 14:13 left in the third quarter. Quiteh has rushed for 4,825 yards in over three seasons in the maroon and gold.

Pidgeon answered the Quiteh run with a 39-yard interception return for a touchdown the following possession to bring the game to 35-21 just 1:39 into the third quarter. The two touchdowns equaled the number of third period scores allowed by Shippensburg all season entering Saturday.

After a trade of punts and a missed field goal opportunity for Shippensburg, the Red Raiders were able to increase their lead to 42-21 on a 45-yard scoring pass from Zulli to Trevor Harman with 3:21 to go in the third.

The Huskies, though, answered that score with a long, 14-play, 83-yard drive, mainly on the legs of Quiteh. The junior carried 10 of the 14 plays and went the final nine yards for the score to make it 42-28 with 12:29 to play.

On the next possession, sophomore linebacker Justin Shirk (Harrisburg/Central Dauphin) forced a Red Raider fumbled at their own 43 with Bloomsburg's DJ Robinson (Sinking Spring/Conrad Weiser) recovering. After a two-yard run by Quiteh, Kelly hit Dickerson for 12 yards to the Shippensburg 29-yard line. Quiteh then went the final 29 yards for his third score to make it 42-35.

After a trade of punts, the Red Raiders took over at their own 41-yard line with 6:23 to play. Moving the ball into Bloomsburg territory Zulli was brought down by senior defensive end Larry Webster (Hagerstown, MD/Elkton), who forced a fumble with Shirk recovering giving the Huskies the ball back and setting up Kelly's game-tying throw to Dickerson.

“We came out in the second half and did exactly what we needed to do,” Quiteh said. “Coach Hale told us at halftime that our character was going to be tested and we would be faced with adversity, and we kept our heads in the game and put points on the board.”

The comeback was needed after the Huskies found themselves in a 14-0 hole before their offense even stepped on the field. Shippensburg used the opening kickoff to get on the board first with a 39-yard TD pass from Zulli t Harman. Bloomsburg then fumbled the kickoff to give the Red Raiders the ball deep in Huskies territory. They scored on the first play of the drive on an 18-yard pass to running back Mike Frenette to take a 14-point advantage less than three minutes into the game.

Shirk gave the Huskies with some defensive momentum to lead to the first BU score of the day. Shirk rushed up the middle on a fourth-and-short and made a strong hit on Zulli to force a bad pass and an SU turnover on downs.

Bloomsburg went six plays, 79 yards to score its first touchdown of the game off a 13-yard run by Quiteh. Kelly ran a season-long 26 yards on the drive and had some great receiving efforts by Dickerson and senior tight end Dylan Manni (Bensalem/Bensalem) to move the Huskies downfield.

Webster forced Shippensburg's first punt of the day late in the first quarter with a big sack up the middle on third down, giving him a team-high 10.5 sacks for the season.

On its opening play of the second quarter, Shippensburg tossed a 63-yard touchdown pass to extend the Raider lead to 28-7. Following a Kelly interception, the Raiders then took it 13 plays for 87 yards with Zulli throwing a two-yard touchdown to lead 35-7.

Oglesby stepped up for the Huskies defense with his team-leading third interception of the season, ending a Shippensburg school-record streak of 200 consecutive passes without an interception for Zulli. The Huskies though could not take advantage of the turnover and turned the ball over on the final play of the half when Kelly was intercepted deep in Shippensburg territory.

“They're a very effective football team, and we just made too many mistakes today,” Hale said. “This was a big physical game and it takes a lot out of you. Right now we will lick our wounds, but there is still a lot of season left. If we finish the season off well beginning with next week at home, we could have a great shot at the postseason.”

The Huskies return home next week for their final home game of the regular season. They host West Chester at Danny Hale Field at Redman Stadium on Saturday, Nov. 3 for a 1 p.m. kickoff.
