35-0 W over Loughborough. HUGE dominant, performance by the O Line and excellent blocking by the WRs see the Clansmen trample Loughborough Students. The Game’s Most Valuable Player #6 Bawa was simply unstoppable leading the rushing attack 150+ yards and 3 scores. Including a highlight real, in which he span out of contact, juked past several defenders and several cutbacks, gaining 40 yards after initial contact.
#2 Campbell although limited set the tone early on the opening drive, marching the Clansmen 80 yards into the red zone.
#11 Prince hauled in an impressive 30 yard pass on 4th down, down to the 1 yard line. #8 Popradi also helped move the chains, with a series of crucial catches. A windy Loughborough ensured that passing was limited.
#15 TE Kovacs hauled in his first receiving touchdown.
#5 Donat added to the score sheet on a QB scramble
Rookie #72 OL Isse had an impressive afternoon, earning a mention as Offense MVP. True rookie #82 Mcilroy registered his first start at WR.
The special teams overcame woes from last game. #25 Hopkinson recovered his own kick off which sailed 20 yards into the air but a strong gust of wind brought the ball back into the clutches of Hopkinson. #88 Hassan was 5/5 on PATs.
