  • SUNY Brockport at Salisbury Game Preview

    SUNY Brockport (1-0) at Salisbury (1-0)
    Sea Gull Stadium
    Salisbury, Md. 1 p.m.
    September 11, 2004

    Salisbury Notes

    Coming off a 31-14 win at Catholic in last week's season opener, Salisbury opens its home schedule with this week's Atlantic Central Football Conference clash against conference newcomer Brockport.
    Salisbury and Brockport are meeting for just the second time. Salisbury won the only prior meeting in 1985 with a 43-0 shutout of the Golden Eagles. Current Sea Gull defensive coordinator Robb Disbennett was SU's starting quarterback in that game and passed for 172 yards and two touchdowns in the victory.
    Despite being just the second week of the season and the first ACFC game for both Salisbury and Brockport, Saturday's game could be pivotal in the conference's 2004 championship chase. Brockport, which has made four straight NCAA playoff appearances, and Salisbury, winner in 16 of 20 games the last two years, have been tabbed as first and second in the ACFC's preseason coaches poll.
    Junior RB Leroy Satchell rushed for 104 yards and two touchdowns and the Sea Gull special teams added two punt blocks and a punt return touchdown in last week's non-conference victory at Catholic. Satchell scored on runs of two and 17 yards and sophomore Byron Westbrook scored on a 68-yard punt return as the Gulls built a 21-0 first half lead. Junior Brock Boland's 32-yard field goal pushed the SU lead to 24-6 at halftime. Senior John Hunt's three-yard TD run early in the fourth increased the lead to 31-6 before Catholic added their second touchdown in the closing seconds.
    Salisbury had its nine-game home winning streak snapped in the last game of the 2003 home season with a one-point loss to Shenandoah. That streak had started in the 2001 season and carried over all or part of three seasons. All told, the Sea Gulls have a 13-8 record on home turf during Coach Sherman Wood's first five seasons.
    The Sea Gulls finished with 340 yards in total offense in last week's game, averaging 4.8 yards per play. SU rushed 55 times for 235 yards while adding another 105 yards through the air. The Sea Gulls recorded 15 first downs and finished with a nearly 10-minute advantage in possession time (34:59 to 25:01). Defensively, the Gulls limited Catholic to 242 total yards, and registered three sacks on the afternoon. The Sea Gulls were penalized 14 times for 115 yards.
    Brockport Notes

    Brockport trailed Cortland 17-12 at halftime. But in the third quarter the Golden Eagles had the ball for 13:02 and thus kept the Red Dragons' first defensive unit on the field for all but 1:58 of the quarter. The Golden Eagles scored TDs on three of their four possessions of the third quarter.
    The receiving corps featured new starters but Kevin Beaumont and Mike Mahoney combined for nine catches and 150 yards with a TD.
    Brockport has now won 41 of the last 43 regular season games, and the program is 37-8 since the start of 2000. The Golden Eagles avenged a loss at Cortland two seasons ago, and Rocco Salomone is now 8-2 in his career against the Red Dragons.
    This week's game at Salisbury will be the first conference game in Brockport's football history. The program began in 1947.
    The only meeting against Salisbury came in 1985, when the Golden Eagles were shutout, 43-0 in the final home game of the season at Special Olympics Stadium.

    Walther notches sixth straight double digit tackle performance

    BROCKPORT, NY— John Walther ( Dansville, NY/Dansville) registered his sixth consecutive game with at least 10 tackles, but the SUNY Brockport football team (2-3; 2-1 ACFC) dropped a 42-17 decision to 13 th ranked Ithaca College (4-0) this afternoon at Butterfield Stadium.

    Entering the game, Brockport had posted a 4-2 record against the Bombers in the last six years, including last year’s 21-20 victory in Special Olympics Stadium.

    After a scoreless first quarter, the Golden Eagles took a 7-0 lead with 10:15 left in the half, when quarterback A.J. Covella (Rochester, NY/Spencerport) connected with Mike Mahoney (Webster, NY/Webster Schroeder) from 10-yards out for the touchdown.

    Ithaca responded with a four-yard touchdown run by Jamie Donovan to knot the score at 7-7.

    SUNY Brockport regained the lead, 10-7, with 1:25 remaining in the half on a 28 yard field goal from Adam Lanctot (Pittsford/Pittsford Mendon), but Ithaca took the lead for good less than a minute later when Josh Felicetti fired a 13-yard touchdown pass to Dan Ross.

    The Bombers pushed their lead to 21-10 in the third quarter, when Felicetti tossed his second touchdown pass of the game to Justin Esposito from 20-yards out.

    A five-yard touchdown plunge by Brian Wise (Newfane, NY/Newfane) capped a 15-play, 80-yard drive, to pull Brockport to within 21-17, but the Golden Eagles could come no closer, as Ithaca scored three consecutive touchdowns, including an 85-yard interception return by Tom Blumenauer to seal the victory.

    Covella paced the Golden Eagles offensively, rushing for a team-high 65 yards on 16 carries, and connecting on 24 of his 34 passing attempts for one touchdown and two interceptions. Wise churned out 163 All-purpose yards, with 36 rushing yards, 34 receiving yards, and 93 yards on kick returns. Mahoney made four catches for 29 yards. Walther recorded a team-best 11 tackles, while Joe Pereira ( Rochester, NY/ Greece Athena) made 10 stops.

    The SUNY Brockport football team will be back in action next Saturday at St. John Fisher, with a 7 p.m. kickoff time.

    Brockport Stuns #25 Wesley, 47-0
    by DJRamFan
    Luke connects on school record four touchdown passes

    BROCKPORT, NY – Freshman quarterback Zack Luke ( Cambridge, NY/ Cambridge) threw for 263 yards and four touchdowns as the Golden Eagles stunned Wesley College, 47-0, in an Atlantic Central Football Conference (ACFC) game Saturday in Brockport.

    Wesley (7-1 overall, 3-1 ACFC) came into the game as the 25 th ranked team in NCAA Division III and were held to minus 3 yards rushing and just 87 yards through the air.

    Brockport (3-4, 3-1) opened the scoring with a Brian Wise (Newfane, NY/Newfane) 15-yard touchdown run as Luke led the team on a 12-play, 69-yard drive midway through the first quarter. Wise finished with 96 yards rushing, 51 yards receiving and 49 yards on returns for 196 all-purpose yards.

    Three minutes later Wise was on the receiving end of a 39-yard Luke scoring pass to put the Golden Eagles up 14-0. Luke was 13-of-22 passing for 263 yards and tied the school record with the four touchdown passes in a game. The effort tied Jim Higgins who tossed four scoring passes in a game twice in 1990.

    Wesley answered with a 13-play drive that stalled at the 10 yard line and the Wolverines had a 27-yard field goal attempt blocked by Dale Buck (Oakfield, NY/Oakfield-Alabama) as time ran out in the first quarter.

    Brockport scored two more times in the second quarter as Adam Lanctot (Pittsford, NY/Pittsford-Mendon) booted a 21-yard field goal and Luke completed a 39-yard scoring pass to Matt McCormick (Peru, NY/Peru) giving the Golden Eagles a 24-0 lead at halftime.

    In the third quarter, Brockport took advantage of Wesley mistakes to tack on another 16 points. Steve Marriott ( Fairport, NY/Fairport) recovered a Wesley fumble at the 45 yard line and three plays later Luke found Mike Mahoney (Webster, NY/Webster-Schroeder) in the endzone for a five-yard scoring pass. Mahoney led all Brockport receivers with 89 yards on five catches.

    The next Wesley drive was two incomplete passes and a quarterback sack pushing the Wolverines to their own 13 yard line. The first Brockport play after the punt was a 42-yard scoring pass from Luke to fullback Robert Miles ( Niagara Falls, NY/ Niagara Falls).

    Near the end of the third quarter, Wesley punter, Jake Reuter (Mullica Hill, NJ/Clearview Regional) tried to recover a snap that sailed over his head and ended up kicking the ball out of the endzone for a Brockport safety as the Golden Eagles went ahead 40-0.

    Brockport added a Garet Lynch ( Valley Stream, NY/ Springfield Gardens) five-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter for the final score.

    Senior John Walther ( Dansville, NY/Dansville) led the Brockport defense with 11 tackles while Marriott added nine stops, one sack, a fumble recovery and a pass break-up.

    Frostburg added a final score with just 2:21 remaining, when Ward found Mike Perlozzo on a two-yard touchdown pass.

    The Bobcats nearly had one final possession, when Kevin Culbert sacked Covella on third-and -10 at the Frostburg 41, but a roughing the kicker penalty on the ensuing punt allowed Brockport to run the clock out to seal the win.

    The Golden Eagles netted 357 yards of offense, and limited Frostburg to 265. Brockport outgained the Bobcats 77-21 on the ground, and 280-244 through the air. Each team turned the ball over once.

    Wise turns in big game for Golden Eagles

    NEWPORT NEWS, VA - It was the Brian Wise (Newfane, NY/Newfane) show for the SUNY Brockport Football team as the Golden Eagles won their first game of the season with a slim 14-7 victory over The Apprentice School in Newport News, Virginia Saturday.

    Wise was the leading runner, receiver, and return man for the Golden Eagles (1-2 overall, 1-1 Atlantic Central Football Conference), who could not muster much else on offense. Wise led the team with 71 yards on the ground including a 3-yard run in the first quarter for a touchdown to give Brockport an early 7-0 lead. Wise added a team-leading 42 yards receiving on six catches and had kickoff returns for 32 yards and punt returns for 89 yards. All totaled, Wise gained 234 all-purpose yards.

    Late in the second quarter, Brockport took a 14-7 lead as quarterback A.J. Covella (Spencerport, NY/Spencerport) connected with tight end Mike Bond (Fairport, NY/Fairport) on a six-yard touchdown pass.

    ACFC Week 3 preview

    Apprentice School (0-2, 0-1) at SUNY Brockport (1-1, 0-1)
    Special Olympics Stadium
    Brockport, N.Y. 1 p.m.

    Apprentice Notes

    This is the first meeting in any sport between Apprentice School and SUNY Brockport and the first time the Builders have faced a New York team since 1995 when they met Cortland State.
    Sophomore QB Rameriz Crumbley was named to the ACFC Offensive Honor Roll this week for his performance last Saturday at Frostburg State. He was 10-of-16 for 96 yards and helped lead the Builders to a nearly 13 minute advantage in time of possession.
    The Apprentice School defense has been nothing short of shocking in the first two games as they have allowed a total of 36 yards rushing. Frostburg State had 11 yards for the game, with 10 of those coming in the last quarter. Kean rushed for 25 yards in the season opener.
    Senior Ricky Doles continues to be the jack of all positions for the Builders. He's the leading receiver with 15 catches for 107 yards, leading returner averaging 10 yards per punt return and 38 yards per kickoff return, and the leading punter averaging 29 yards per punt. He earned ACFC Special Teams Honor Roll for this week after a 38 yard kickoff return, two punt returns averaging five yards per and three punts averaging 34 yards per kick.
    Brockport Notes

    Senior QB Bob Darnley had success at home last season. He had three touchdown passes in each of the four regular season home games in the 2003 season.
    Senior DB Troy Anderson, a three-year starter, recorded his 100th career tackle in last week's game at Salisbury.
    SUNY Brockport started out 1-1 two seasons ago but then won six straight and later reached the NCAA's. Three years ago, the Golden Eagles also were 1-1 and stood 1-2 before winning seven straight games and reaching the playoffs.
    Brockport opens the home season this week. The Golden Eagles 10-1 in the last 11 regular season games at Special Olympics Stadium.
    Only two road games remain, and after next week, only one more contest awaits.
    Brockport has never faced Apprentice. This is the second straight week that the Golden Eagles will face an opponent for the first time, and both are new ACFC rivals.
    SUNY Brockport will attempt to keep a streak alive of consecutive home opening victories. The last time Brockport lost a home opener was in 1998 to (then future ACFC rival) Buffalo State, 34-27. The Golden Eagles have won five straight home openers and seven of the last eight.
