Colby football to end season at home against Bowdoin
(Mules to have Senior Day and Military Appreciation Game)

WATERVILLE, Maine -- The Colby College football team will not have a Colby-Bates-Bowdoin (CBB) title on the line, but the Mules still have plenty to play for against rival Bowdoin College on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. at Seaverns Field at Harold Alfond Stadium.

Colby (2-5 overall) and Bowdoin (0-7) will meet for the 128th time, the third-longest series in NCAA Division III football. In the past four years, the home team has won each game. Saturday also is Senior Day and the Military Appreciation Game.

Colby seniors Joe Anile IV, Ryder Arsenault, Conor Bruen, Anthony Cappellino, Gabe Harrington, Jabari Hurdle-Price, Will Julich, Alex Kramer, Justin Lamere, Carl Lipani, Chris Marano, Jack Muntu-Caron, Larry Patrizio, Mike Roberts, Duncan Sewell (manager), Henry Wallrapp, and Braden Wilson will be honored before the game.

This will be the fourth annual Military Appreciation Game. Over the past three years, the football program has raised nearly $20,000 for the Military Family Assistance Center's "Christmas Across Maine" program thanks to the players, families, and alumni. Donations support current Maine military families with presents for their children, food baskets, gift certificates, and with utility bills during the holiday season. Military families are invited to the tailgate event following the game.

Colby junior kicker/punter John Baron was named the NESCAC Special Teams Player of the Week after going 4-of-4 on his field goal attempts in last Saturday's loss at Tufts. Baron tied school records for field goals in a game and field goals in a season (9). He ranks second in the conference in made field goals and fifth in kicker points (33). Baron also earned the honor after Colby's season-opening victory at Williams College.

The Mules have four players with 40 tackles or more, including leading tackler Don Vivian (49 tackles, 5 pass break-ups). Ian Dickey (47 tackles, team-best three interceptions), Bryan McAdams (45 tackles), and Sebastien Philemon (40 tackles) are the other leading tacklers.

Colby quarterbacks Christian Sparacio (704 yards, 4 TD) and Jack O'Brien (535 yards, 2 TD) have combined for more than 1,200 passing yards.

Mule wide receiver Sebastian Ferrell ranks fourth in the conference in receiving yards per game (72.9) and seventh in all-purpose yards (106.1). He is first in the NESCAC in yards per catch (18.2). Matt Richman (129 receiving yards), Alex Kramer (128), and Ryder Arsenault (122) are other threats at wide receiver.

Colby took a 14-7 home win over the Polar Bears in the 2014 season and won 17-0 at Harold Alfond Stadium in 2012. Bowdoin took a 35-13 victory against the Mules last year at Whittier Field.

Bowdoin fell 24-7 at home to Bates College last Saturday, but only trailed 10-7 in the fourth quarter. The Bobcats won their third straight CBB title after beating the Mules and Polar Bears in back-to-back weeks.

Bowdoin linebacker Joe Gowetski is tied for the NESCAC lead in tackles (89) and tackles per game (12.7). Nye Deskus is second in total tackles (44), Henry Little has 43 tackles and six tackles for loss, and Latif Armiyaw is at 38 tackles and four for loss.

Bowdoin quarterback Tim Drakeley threw for 314 yards and three touchdowns in the win over the Mules last year in Brunswick. Drakeley has thrown for 701 yards and a pair of touchdowns while sharing time with Noah Nelson (529 yards, 4 TD).

Bryan Porter (310 receiving yards) and Liam Ford (307) are the Polar Bears' top two receiving threats. Nate Richam is sixth in the league in rushing yards per game (53.1).

Re: Football:HARRINGTON, HURDLE-PRICE, VIVIAN, BARON LEAD CO

HARRINGTON, HURDLE-PRICE, VIVIAN, BARON LEAD COLBY FOOTBALL PAST BOWDOIN, 32-16

WATERVILLE, Maine -- Colby College quarterback Gabe Harrington and running back Jabari Hurdle-Price refused to let injury issues get in the way of their final collegiate football game in a 32-16 win over rival Bowdoin College on Saturday at Harold Alfond Stadium.

Harrington, who was hurt in the first game of the season, played for the first time since the injury and had a 29-yard touchdown run and threw for 125 yards. Hurdle-Price also was questionable with an injury, but played and ran for 161 yards and scored two touchdowns.

Colby finished the season at 3-5 overall, while Bowdoin ended up 0-8. The teams were meeting for the 128th time, the third-longest series in NCAA Division III football.

Colby kicker John Baron had quite a two weeks booting field goals. He broke the New England Small College Athletic Conference record for field goals in a season by going 4-for-4 for the second straight week. Baron finished up with 13 field goals to break the record of 11 set by Willie Holmquist (2015) of Tufts University and Joe Mallock (2012) of Williams College. Baron also broke a tie with John Goss (9) for the Colby record for field goals in a season.

The Mules scored 19 straight points in the fourth quarter to turn a 13-10 nail-biter into a comfortable 32-10 margin. Colby was driving in the Polar Bears' territory as the fourth quarter started. The Mules went 10 plays and 56 yards before settling for a 21-yard field goal with 14:11 to play.

Bowdoin took a risk by going for a first down on a 4th-and-2 play from its own 38-yard line. Colby's Sebastien Philemon and Sam Gomez made the tackle on running back Christopher Markisz for a gain of no yards.

Hurdle-Price took over the game on Colby's next two touchdowns. He immediately rambled 34 yards to the Bowdoin 4-yard line on the first play of the drive. Three plays later, he dove in from 1-yard out with 6:48 to play. The Mules did miss the extra point and led 22-10.

After a three-and-out by Bowdoin, the Mules took over on the 50-yard line after the punt. Hurdle-Price went left, got into a big hole, and raced down the sideline for a 50-yard touchdown score and a 29-10 margin.

Colby defensive back Don Vivian had his best collegiate game with a game-high 14 tackles (9 solo), 1.5 tackles for loss, a blocked kick, and an interception. After Hurdle-Price's second touchdown, Vivian had his pick at the Bowdoin 41-yard line in front of the Colby bench. He raced down the right sideline for a 29-yard gain to the Polar Bear 12-yard line.

With the clock winding down, Colby elected to run the ball before Baron kicked a 35-yard field goal for a 32-10 lead.

The Polar Bears only needed 1:59 to drive 69 yards on nine plays. Bowdoin quarterback Tim Drakeley tossed a 30-yard touchdown to Liam Ford on the goal line on the right sideline area with 31 seconds left. Ford had a terrific day with 11 catches for 104 yards.

The Mules darted out to a 13-0 lead behind two field goals from Baron and the touchdown run by Harrington. Baron connected from 24 yards to open the scoring and on the next drive hit from 23 yards.

Harrington's best drive was in the second quarter. He had a 15-yard completion to Alex Kramer and a 17-yard strike to Sebastian Ferrell. On the sixth play of the drive, Harrington went up the middle on his 29-yard score.

Bowdoin made it 13-3 with 4:30 left to halftime on Andrew Sisti's 40-yard field goal. Ford had three catches for 27 yards on the drive.

The Polar Bears had success running the ball behind Nate Richam (112 yards, 5.3 per rush) and Markisz (91 yards, 5.7 per rush). 

Colby received some final special teams play from first-year Andrew DeFranco, who had three kickoff returns for a 32.3-yard average.

The Polar Bears had an edge in total offense (342-331), first downs (18-12) and time of possession (32:57-27:03).

Patrick Yale and Bryan McAdams both had seven tackles for the Mules. Meanwhile, Henry Little and Austin Stern each had five tackles for Bowdoin.
