Football Caps Campaign With Dominant Rivalry Win Over Colby

BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Bowdoin College football team closed out its 2015 campaign with a resounding 35-13 win over Colby on Saturday at Whittier Field.

The Polar Bears finish their season with a record of 2-6 while the Mules end at 1-7. Saturday was the 127th meeting between the two rivals, the third-longest in Division III football.

How It Happened

Colby threatened early, pinning Bowdoin in their own territory for most of the opening quarter. The Mules' best chance to score came following a Will Caffey interception that put Colby at the Bowdoin 10, but the Mules could not covert the chance into points, failing on a fourth down from the 3 yard-line.
Bowdoin got on the board with a 12-play, 49-yard drive that resulted in an Andrew Sisti 27-yard field goal remaining in the second quarter
After a Colby three-and-out Bowdoin then marched 63 yards in six plays, with Tim Drakeley finding Nick Vailas on the left sideline for a 40-yard touchdown strike. Vailas tiptoed the sideline for the final 10 yards to paydirt.
Sisti hit a 30-yard field goal at the gun before halftime to give the Polar Bears a 13-0 lead at intermission
The Polar Bear defense shut the Mules out on their first possession of the second half and then covered 75 yards in seven plays with Drakeley connecting with Bryan Porter (22 yard pass) and Jake Rourke (26 yard pass) for big plays
Rourke plunged one yard into the endzone to cap the drive and give Bowdoin a 20-0 lead
Colby cut into Bowdoin's lead later in the quarter as Gabe Harrington found Alex Kramer wide open over the middle to end a nine-play 91-yard drive and trim the score to 20-7
Bowdoin replied with a touchdown early in the fourth quarter to regain some space as Vailas took a Drakeley pass over the middle, spun out of a tackled and raced into the endzone for a 36-yard touchdown and a 27-7 lead
Colby tried to climb back into the contest with an 80-yard touchdown drive that saw Jabari Hurdle-Price dive into the endzone from one yard out, but Jibrail Coy blocked the PAT for Bowdoin and Cameron Rondeau scooped it up and returned it for a two-point conversion to keep it a three-score game.
Bowdoin added a late touchdown from Drakeley to Porter from 30 yards out to close out the scoring
By The Numbers

Tim Drakeley went 24-43 with 314 yards passing and three touchdowns for Bowdoin - all career highs
Jake Rourke had 101 yards of all-purpose yards for Bowdoin (75 rushing, 26 receiving) while Nick Vailas caught six passes for 114 yards and two scores
Porter finished with six catches as well for 95 yards and a score for the Polar Bears
Colby was led by 73 yards rushing from Hurdle-Price, who also had eight catches for 43 yards
Gabe Harrington bounced back from an early injury to throw for 193 yards and a score, going 19-29
Defensively, Brendan Lawler finished with 12 tackles for Bowdoin while Stephen O'Grady had a dozen for Colby
The Bowdoin defense held Colby to just 77 yards rushing on the day and 3 for 16 on third-down conversions

SIDELINES: Bragging rights go to Bowdoin football this year
Bowdoin beat Colby 56-0 in their first game in 1892 and you can bet the Polar Bears' players celebrated the bragging rights won on that day just as much as the Bowdoin players celebrated Saturday's 35-13 win over the Mules.

BRUNSWICK — If somebody says to you, “the only thing on the line in the game are bragging rights,” dismiss that person. He or she obviously has no idea how important bragging rights can be.

On Saturday afternoon at Whittier Field, Colby College and Bowdoin College played football against each other for the 127th time. This rivalry goes back to the days of the Benjamin Harrison administration. Bowdoin beat Colby 56-0 in that first game in 1892 and you can bet the Polar Bears’ players celebrated the bragging rights won on that day just as much as the Bowdoin players celebrated Saturday’s 35-13 win over the Mules.
