    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.

    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.

    With the score tied at 7-7 after one quarter, Salisbury scored on the first play of the second quarter as Johnson connected on a 28-yard TD pass to WR Mark Higgins, capping an eight-play, 80-yard drive. Sophomore RB Francis Bryant extended the lead to 21-7 with a five-yard touchdown run three minutes later.

Johnson then capped the first half scoring with a 13-yard touchdown run, putting the Sea Gulls ahead 30-7 at halftime. 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.

    by DJRamFan
    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,...
