quarter by Catholic and trailed the Cardinals 6-3 after the first
15 minutes. The second frame proved more fruitful for R-MC as

notched two of his five touchdowns with pair of short runs to put
the Yellow Jackets ahead, 17-6, heading into the locker rooms.
Catholic pulled to within five points in the third quarter
when Kyle Bernard, starting his first game under center for the
injured Greg Cordivari, ran in from nine yards out. But
Randolph-Macon closed the contest with 28 unanswered points,
including three more touchdowns by Hendren. The senior
h-back, whose lead blocking helped R-MC to 205 yards on the ground,

five scores tie for second-best all-time in the ODAC, while the 30
points are the third best mark. He added two more TD runs in
the second half, while also hauling in a 32-yard scoring strike

ball carriers on the way to the first 500-yard rushing performance
in ODAC history. Quarterback Nick Lombardo and running back
Luke Heinsohn both eclipsed the 100-yard mark with 164 and 138
yards, respectively. Sasha Vandalov had 85 yards and
touchdown, while Brett Murray added 59 yards and a score.
Heinsohn notched three more touchdowns to give him an
ODAC-best 12 on the season. He added his first career field
goal and six PATs in his dual role as the Generals' kicker, giving
him 27 points for the game, which is the seventh highest-single
game mark in ODAC history. He moved into the top-five in the
ODAC for career scoring with 255 points. Emory & Henry
also had a successful day on the ground as Joe Vaughn toted the
ball 31 times for 171 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Quarterback Kyle Boden, who was 23-of-31 passing for 147
yards, ran for a 10-yard score in the third quarter. The
Wasps' remaining TD came on the defensive side of the ball as Ross
Ellis picked up a fumble forced by Paul Forney and returned it 47
yards to pay-dirt. Ellis led the unit with 15 tackles while
Daniel Woods made 13 stops and Forney made 12 tackles. Jake
Pelton led W&L's defense with 12 tackles.

offensive day in moving to 4-3 on the road under second-year head
coach Chris Rusiewicz. The Quakers held Shenandoah just to
206 yards of offense and kept the Hornets off the scoreboard for 55
minutes before Rigo Salguero notched SU's touchdown with a
nine-yard pass from Corey Taylor. Taylor had 124 yards

and a pair of tackles for a loss, which included a half-sack.

quarterback Matt Pawlowski was solid in going 15-of-28 for 223
yards and touchdowns, both coming to Trey Billian as his first
career touchdowns. Shenandoah's defense was paced by Jajuan
Johnson, who had 13 tackles and three sacks. Bryon Mitchell
made 12 stops and Josh Rogers came away with 10 tackles.
