Endicott Holds Off Maine Maritime

BEVERLY, Mass. – Maine Maritime Academy amassed 283 rushing yards, including a touchdown from both Michael Fahey (Union, Conn.) and James Ferrar (Cumberland, Maine) in a tough 37-14 New England Football Conference loss to Endicott on Saturday at Hempstead Stadium.

The Mariners threw another interception on their next drive, but answered back with an 8-play 62-yard scoring drive capped off by a Fahey 3-yard run. Chad Martin's (Fairfield, Maine) extra-point was good to tie things at 7-7.

The Gulls scored 17 points in the second half to take a 24-7 lead into the intermission.

Robert Bradley Jr. (Slidell, La.) strip-sacked Gull quarterback Sam Ouellette at the end of the third quarter, and Jeddy Doyon (Hampden, Maine) recovered the ball to give the Mariners possession on the Endicott 45-yard line, but Jacob Doolan's (Fairfield, Maine) pass was intercepted to halt Maine Maritime's momentum.

Endicott added 10 points in the fourth quarter to claim the NEFC victory, improving to 3-4 overall and 3-1 in the conference, while the Mariners fall to 1-5 overall and 0-4 in NEFC play.

Ouellette led the way for the Gulls offensively, with 245 passing yards on 15 completions, and a touchdown.

Defensively, the Mariners were led by Doyon who recorded 11 tackles (three solo) and a fumble recovery, and Alex Gamester's (Kittery, Maine) 10 tackles (six solo).

The Mariners scored late in the third quarter, on Ferrar's 46-yard touchdown run to cut the deficit to 20-14. Maine Maritime's defense came up big forcing the Colonel's to punt on their next possession. Doolan grabbed a 6-yard touchdown run to give the Mariners the 21-20 lead, capping off a 7-play 77-yard drive with 3:04 remaining in the game.

Maine Maritime's defense came up big yet again, holding the Colonel's on a third-and-goal setting up a 25-yard field goal attempt by Mrozek. Burgess recorded his single game-record third blocked kick, preserving the Mariner lead.

The Mariners defense held the Colonel's on their next drive, and hung on for the win to improve to 2-5 overall, and 1-4 in the New England Football Conference, while Curry falls to 3-5 overall and 2-3 in the NEFC.

Cody Chapman (Bangor, Maine) led the Mariners with six tackles (two solo), and a broken up pass, while Cody McDonald (Lincoln, Maine), Weymouth, Jeddy Doyon (Hampden, Maine) and Burgess each recorded five tackles.
