    Covella ties school record for completions

    BROCKPORT, NY-The SUNY Brockport football team (0-2) jumped out to a 23-7 halftime lead, but fell victim to a second half rally by defending Atlantic Central Football Conference champions and 12th ranked Salisbury State (2-0), this afternoon, dropping a 35-30 decision to the visiting Sea Gulls at Special Olympic Stadium.

    After being limited to 248 yards by Cortland in the opener, the Golden Eagles had 408 yards of offense against Salisbury, including 293 in the opening half.

    The Golden Eagles opened the game with a nine play, 74-yard drive, capped by a 13 yard touchdown pass from A.J. Covella (Rochester, NY/Spencerport) to Matt McCormick (Peru, NY/Peru) giving SUNY Brockport a 7-0 edge.

    On the ensuing possession, Golden Eagle defensive end Dale Buck (Oakfield, NY/Oakfield Alabama) stripped the ball from Sean Fuller, and Tim Weber (Rochester, NY/Gates-Chili) pounced on the ball. On the first play of the SUNY Brockport drive, Covella tossed a 42-yard strike to Mike Mahoney (Webster, NY/Webster Schroeder) on a flea-flicker, and connected with him again for a 15-yard touchdown pass, pushing the Brockport lead to 13-0.

    The Sea Gulls responded with an 11-play, 70-yard drive, culminated with a five yard touchdown scamper by quarterback Dustin Johnson.

    With just under six minutes remaining in the half, SUNY Brockport's special teams came up with a big play of their own, when Matt Miller (Amherst, NY/Amherst) blocked a Salisbury punt, and Kevin Beaumont (Rochester, NY/West Irondequoit) returned it 25 yards to put Brockport ahead 20-7.

    Late in the first half, Damien Aliseo (Toms River, NJ/Toms River South) recovered a Johnson fumble, setting up a 22-yard Adam Lanctot (Pittsford, NY/Pittsford Mendon) field goal, as the Golden Eagles took a 23-7 lead into the locker room.

    The Sea Gulls exploded for four unanswered touchdowns in the second half, including scoring receptions to Jamar Garner and Joseph Early, and runs from Johnson and Leroy Satchell. Salisbury's final score of the game came on a 23-yard run from Johnson, and gave the Sea Gulls a 35-23 lead.

    With 4:36 left in the game, SUNY Brockport went on a six play, 56 yard drive, capped by a Covella touchdown pass to Mike Calderon (Eden, NY/Eden), pulling the Golden Eagles to within 35-30.

    After forcing a Salisbury punt, Brockport had the ball at their own 20 with 1:59 left in the game. Two plays after a 17-yard completion to Brian Wise (Newfane, NY/Newfane), Covella was intercepted by Terrance Dorsey, ending the threat.

    The Sea Gulls held a 24-18 edge in first downs, and rushed for 309 yards. The Golden Eagles were successful through the air, gaining 322 passing yards, marking the first 300-yard passing game since 1994. Covella tied a school record for completions, connecting 25 of his 37 passing attempts,...

    by DJRamFan
    Defense comes up big for Brockport

    BROCKPORT, NY—The SUNY Brockport football team (2-2; 1-1 ACFC) limited visiting Frostburg State to just 21 rushing yards, and picked up a 19-14 victory this afternoon at Special Olympics Stadium.

    The win was the sixth straight for Brockport over the Bobcats, as the Golden Eagles improved to 10-4 in the series.

    The Golden Eagles forced a Bobcat punt after six plays on Frostburg’s first possession of the game, and capped a nine-play, 87-yard drive when A.J. Covella (Rochester, NY/Spencerport) hit Kevin Beaumont (Rochester, NY/West Irondequoit) with a 13 –yard scoring toss with 7:19 remaining in the opening quarter.

    SUNY Brockport added to their lead with 8:45 remaining in the first half, when Adam Lanctot ( Pittsford, NY/Pittsford Mendon) hit a 37-yard fieldgoal.

    The Golden Eagles added another score towards the end of the opening half, when Covella found Mike Mahoney (Webster, NY/Webster Schroeder) kneeling in the endzone from 13-yards out, sending Brockport into the intermission wit a 17-0 lead.

    Frostburg responded in the third quarter, taking the opening kickoff 87-yards on nine plays, capped by a one-yard touchdown run from quarterback Jimmy Ward.

    Late in the third quarter, after Brockport turned the ball over on downs at the Frostburg one-yard line, John Walther ( Dansville, NY/Dansville) trapped Ward in the endzone for a safety, pushing the Golden Eagle’s lead to 19-7.

    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.

McCormick had nine receptions for 91 yards. Walther was the team’s leading with 13, including two sacks. Joe Pereira ( Rochester, NY/Greece Athena) and Tim Weber (Rochester, NY/Gates-Chili) also had a pair of stops behind the line of scrimmage.

    by DJRamFan
    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.

    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.

    The Golden Eagles play the final three games of the season on the road beginning...
