Husson runs over Alfred State, 44-2

ALFRED, N.Y. - Husson rushed for 356 yards and five touchdowns Saturday, leading to a 44-2 win at Alfred State (N.Y.) at Pioneer Stadium. The Eagles improve to 3-1 all-time against the Pioneers and earn their first win at Pioneer Stadium.

John Smith had over 100 rushing yards in the first quarter and finished with 184 yards on 29 carries and three touchdowns, while Logan Steward added 128 yards on 18 rushes, including a 49-yard touchdown scamper early in the fourth quarter. Smith and Steward each topped the century mark on the ground last season against Castleton (Vt.), the last time Husson (1-1) had two 100-yard rushers in a game.

The Eagles 69 carries Saturday are second most in a game to the 73 against Norwich (Vt.) in 2008.

The Eagles defense smothered Alfred State (0-2) to the tune of just 41 yards of total offense, fewest allowed in a single game, including minus-nine net yards rushing, second fewest allowed in Husson history. The 14 tackles for loss by the Eagles are tied for second most in a game in school history. The Eagles allowed just 0.7 yards per play, breaking the previous record of just 1.8 allowed to SUNY Maritime (N.Y.) in 2014. The 11.0 passing efficiency by the Pioneers is the lowest ever allowed by the Eagles, breaking the previous mark of 13.5 in 2004 by Worcester Poly Tech (Mass.).

Husson's Kenny Sweet totaled three interceptions, tying the school's single-game record set by Adam Scott and Chad Bennett (twice), all done in 2004. He also had four pass breakups. Sweet's 100 yards on interception returns is second most in a game next to Scott. His 225 career return yards are now most in school history, breaking Scott's previous mark of 210.

Husson forced four turnovers Saturday and has forced seven turnovers in the first two contests this year.

Husson racked up 411 yards of total offense.

The Eagles 79 punt return yards Saturday are the most ever for Husson in a single game.

After giving up a safety on a bad snap on a punt, Husson rattled off 44 unanswered points, starting with Smith's one-yard plunge into the endzone midway through the first quarter to cap a seven-play, 55-yard drive.

Deon Wiggins returned a punt 55 yards for a score nearly two minutes later to make the score 14-3.

Smith's second rushing touchdown on the day, this time from six yards out, came 29 seconds into the second quarter to finish off an 11-play, 92-yard drive. His third score came from three yards out to cap a 14-play, 75-yard march. Alfred fell on its own fumble in the endzone with just under five minutes remaining before halftime, giving the Eagles another two points and a 30-2 edge.

The Pioneers best offensive scoring chance came with under two minutes left in the second quarter when the home team drove to the Husson 20, but Sweet intercepted a Jason McMahon pass and returned it 83 yards to the Alfred 17, preserving the four-touchdown, halftime upper hand.

After a scoreless third quarter, Steward's touchdown burst came on the second play from scrimmage in the fourth, as he accounted for all 58 yards and two plays of the series.

The Eagles final scoring drive was set up when Joe Farrell blocked a Zack Goodwin punt, which was recovered at the Alfred State 12. Two plays later, Stephen Day crossed the goal line from three yards out with 5:17 left in the game.

Husson attempted just 11 passes in the contest. Kadeem Edge caught one pass for 35 yards in the win.

Ryan Malcolm and Tom Black each had one sack for the Eagles. Luke Washburn totaled 2.5 tackles for loss.

Kenneth Nelson had 13 tackles and 0.5 tackles for loss in defeat.

Husson is off for two weeks before returning to the field Saturday, Oct. 3, against Castleton (Vt.) on Homecoming. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. ET at Winkin Sports Complex.

Seccareccia passes Husson football team to victory

BANGOR, Maine — Husson University used a game-changing, 63-yard touchdown pass from Joe Seccareccia to Greg Moore with 1:26 left in the first half to build a 14-point lead and opened the second half with a long scoring drive en route to a 40-7 Eastern Collegiate Football Conference victory over Castleton University on Saturday afternoon.

Seccareccia, a senior quarterback, threw four touchdown passes. The one to Moore came on a hitch-and-go pattern on which the receiver runs down the field, stops to lure the defensive back to him, then turns and sprints up the field.

Eagles win first ever game at Gallaudet in program history, 54-8

Washington, D.C. – Husson scored on its first five possessions Saturday and never looked back, as the Eagles defeated Gallaudet, 54-8 for their first ever win at Gallaudet in program history, in Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) action on Saturday Hotchkiss Field.

Husson (5-1, 4-0 ECFC) wins its eleventh-straight league game, while Gallaudet (0-6, 0-4 ECFC) loses its second-consecutive to the Eagles and falls to 3-5 in the series.

Running back John Smith ran in three scores during the opening stretch for the Eagles as he rushed for 135 yards on 18 carries. The Eagles' fifth score was setup after a Bison fumble on a kick return deep in Gallaudet territory. Two plays later, Husson quarterback Joe Seccareccia (7 of 11, 98 yards, three touchdowns) hit Jon Saban for a 28-yard score. Seccareccia added one more touchdown pass before halftime as the Eagles led 41-0.

Seccareccia's three passing touchdowns on day gives him 16 on the season for a new single-season record. He set the previous mark of 14 last season. Seccareccia also became the second Eagle player to be responsible for 40 or more career touchdowns and needs seven to pass Julius Williams for the most in program history.

Smith became the third Eagle player to surpass the 2,300 career rushing yard plateau and now has 2,361 the second most in program history and the fourth player to eclipse the 2,400 career all-purpose yard mark.

The Bison defense gave up a season-high 272 rushing yards on 60 carries, four rushing touchdowns and surrendered 54 points.

Gallaudet showed some flashes during the game as the Bison marched 51 yards on 11 plays on its second possession before turning the ball over on downs at the Husson 20. In the fourth quarter, the Bison marched 46 yards on seven plays and got to the Husson 6 before quarterback Ramon Johnson had two incomplete passes as Gallaudet came away from the red-zone with no points.

Husson fumbled the ball back to Gallaudet when Bobby Green Jr. recovered the loose ball at the Husson 6 with 2:17 left in the game.

Austin Hundley ran the ball three times and on the last handoff he dove into the end zone for the lone touchdown of the game for the Bison. Johnson then completed the two-point conversion pass to Lawrence Watson as he held on with defenders draped on him.

On special teams, freshman Grant Getz used his 6-foot-6 frame to block three extra-point kicks by Husson.

Carneilus Smith and Richard Harty led the Bison defense with 15 tackles each. Louie Akuffo (Bowie, Md.) added 11 tackles along with junior Jacy Pedersen.

The fifth ranked Husson defense was led by Jean Gabriel and Bryant Wade, as both collected six tackles on the day. Wade added 2 tackles for loss for 9 yards. Christian Mowrer and Matt Pellerin each clipped in with 5 tackles apiece. Josh Lovins had an interception and return it 27 yards for the pick six.

Husson returns home to Winkin Sports Complex next weekend to host SUNY-Maritime on Saturday, October 31st for 12:00 p.m. kickoff. The Bison will hit the road next weekend and travel to Massachusetts to face Becker in a conference game on Saturday, Oct. 31, at noon.
