Wolverines Dominate Husson
BANGOR, Maine - Six different players scored their first career touchdowns for No. 13 Wesley College in a 72-0 pounding of Husson.
Sean Hopkins (Georgetown, Del./Sussex Central), Larry Jackson (Dade City, Fla./Cardinal Gibbons), Mike Asiedu (Yonkers, N.Y./Gorton), Steven Koudossou (Waldorf, Md./Westlake), Joe Bonato (Petersburg, N.J./Ocean City) and Derrick Bender (Freehold Borough, N.J./Freehold) each found the endzone for the first time in a Wolverine uniform in the game.
The Wolverines' defense stifled the Eagles all day, limiting Husson's offense to just 98 yards, including a negative 15 on the ground.
Wesley scored early and often in the first half, building an insurmountable 55-0 lead at the intermission.
Matt Barile (Bel Air, Md./Fallston) took the opening kickoff 79 yards for a touchdown as the Wolverines took a 7-0 lead just 14 seconds into the contest.
After the Eagles went three and out, the Wolverines took over at the 50 yardline. Wesley methodically ran off an 11-play drive capped by a four-yard plunge by Shane McSweeny (Bensalem, Pa./Bensalem) for a 13-0 lead with 8:17 left in the first quarter.
Husson fumbled the next kickoff and Askia Jahad (Williamstown, N.J./Williamstown) recovered for the Wolverines at the Eagle four. Jahad got the carry on first down and punched it in for a 20-0 lead just 16 seconds after the previous score.
Wesley needed just one play on its next possession, as well. After a Husson punt, McSweeny hit Steven Koudossou for a 77-yard touchdown and a 27-0 lead.
The Eagles went three and out again and Wesley took over at its own 32-yardline. McSweeny completed passes of 20-plus yards before hitting Hopkins with a three-yard strike and and a 34-0 lead after one quarter of play.
Husson's offense finally found its legs on the opening drive of the second quarter, moving into the red zone. Asiedu, however, put an end to the threat with an interception he returned 90 yards for a touchdown to give Wesley a 41-0 lead.
Two more punts by the Eagles resulted in two more touchdown passes for McSweeny before the half. Jackson caught his first touchdown as a Wolverine on a two-yard play that capped a 10-play drive. Koudossou hauled in a 29-yard strike, their second scoring connection of the half, with 1:25 left in the period to make it 55-0.
The opening drive of the fourth quarter resulted in six straight runs, capped by a four-yard touchdown run by Bonato.
The final score of the game came with 8:43 to go when Bender picked off an Eagle pass and took it 22 yards to paydirt.
McSweeny went 13-of-18 for 228 yards and threw four touchdowns for the second straight contest.
Koudossou caught just two passes, but made them count. He had 106 yards and scored twice. Robinson led the ground attack with a career high 10 carries for 57 yards.
For the Eagles, Kash Keezer finished 11-of-32 for 113 yards, but was intercepted three times and sacked four more. Shabashe McIntosh caught six passes for 46 yards.
Stephen Dance had 12 tackles, while Kyle Vanidestine added 10.
