    SALISBURY, MD. -- Junior quarterback Dustin Johnson rushed for 159 yards and one touchdown and added 95 yards passing and two more touchdowns through the air to lead Salisbury to a 46-21 Atlantic Central Football
    Conference victory over SUNY Brockport. The Sea Gulls (2-0 overall, 1-0 ACFC) seized control of the game by outscoring Brockport 23-0 in the second quarter. Brockport falls to 1-1 overall, and 0-1 after playing in the school's ACFC debut.

Johnson registered the eighth 100-yard rushing game of his career and amassed his third highest single-game rushing total

    Boland's second field goal of the game (28 yards) and a three-yard TD run by Brockport's Jon Brown (Rochester/Greece Arcadia) accounted for the third quarter scoring as Salisbury carried a 33-14 lead into the fourth quarter. The Sea Gulls sandwiched fourth quarter touchdown runs by fullbacks John Hunt (seven yards) and Leroy Satchell (five yards) around a 44-yard TD pass from Brockport QB AJ Covella (Rochester/Spencerport) to WR Matt McCormick (Peru/Peru Central) to account for the final 46-21 margin.

    The Salisbury defense forced four turnovers and recorded five sacks in the game. Chris Barr paced the defense with 10 tackles, while Brad DeHaven and Billy Leinemann added eight tackles each. DeHaven registered four of SU's five sacks and forced two fumbles.

    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,...

    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 improved to 4-2 while the Bombers fell to 4-2 after the non-league contest.

Brown had 12 carries for 57 yards and the touchdown. John Walther (Dansville) led the Golden Eagles wtih 12 tackles, two for losses, an interception and a sack. He intercepted Josh Felicetti (Doylestown, PA/Center Bucks East) at the Ithaca 47 with 9:44 remaining in the fourth quarter to stop a Bombers' drive.

    Jamie Donovan (Washington, DC/Sidwell Friends) led the Bombers with a career high 28 yards on 37 carries with a touchdown. He is the first 200-yard Bomber back since 1992 and first Ithaca runner over 100 yards against Brockport since 1998. Felicetti was 16 for 34 with two touchdowns and 187 yards, and had four passes intercepted. Vince Dargush (Amsterdam) led Ithaca with five catches for 62 yards and a touchdown.

    SUNY Brockport at Salisbury Game Preview

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

    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...

    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. 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.
