FOREST, Va. --- There were just two games on the
docket this past weekend, but one of them opened ODAC play for the
2012 campaign. Bridgewater College hosted Shenandoah in the
first league contest of the season and the inaugural conference
football game for the new-member Hornets. BC won the game
17-14. Hampden-Sydney College concluded its non-conference
schedule with a 24-21 loss to Huntingdon. All other ODAC
teams were idle this weekend.
Bridgewater joined Emory & Henry College at 3-0 on the season
by winning its fourth straight game dating back to last season.
BC owned a seven-point lead twice in the game, but Shenandoah
leveled the score just as many times to force the outcome to the
fourth quarter. Freshman kicker John Griggs booted a 33-yard
field goal midway through the final frame to provide the game
deciding score. BC quarterback Willie Logan, this week's ODAC
Offensive Player of the Week, tossed a pair of touchdown passes and
kept the offense moving on a day when the Eagles' rushing attack
was kept in check. Danny Grogg, this week's ODAC Defensive
Player of the Week, helped the defense corrall the Hornets' offense
as he notched eight tackles, three for a loss, and 1.5 sacks.
He and interior line-mate Joel Francis combined on a sack to
end the game as SU attempted to get into scoring position.
Shenandoah's defense was solid in the effort as they got to
Logan for four total quarterback sacks.
Hampden-Sydney's offense was held in check for the majority of the
first half as H-SC trailed 14-7 at the half and 17-7 early in the
third quarter. But two touchdowns by the Tigers --- a
one-yard run by quarterback Nash Nance and a 40-yard pass to Holton
Walker --- saw them go ahead, 21-17, heading into the final frame.
Huntingdon was able to keep H-SC off the board in the final
15 minutes while notching a long TD pass of their own to pull out
the win. Walker finished with career-highs of 11 catches and
151 yards to go with his touchdown reception. Defensively,
Trevor Ikwild led all tacklers with 13 stops to go with 1.0 sacks,
a fumble and a fumble recovery.
