PHILLY COLLEGE SPORTS FOOTBALL WEEK IN REVIEW
Philly Schools Swept In Road Games
Games of September 29th 2018
TEMPLE – Overall 2 – 3, 1 – 0 American Athletic Conference
Result – Lost 45 – 35 at Boston College
Summary – The Temple Owls faced a familiar face in former coach Steve Addazio. But this was not about the coaches, it was about two teams that went toe-to-toe for 60 minutes, especially on the ground. The Owls featured running back Ryquell Armstead who carried the ball 24 times for 171 yards and 4 touchdowns. Armstead has run for 100 yards in each of the last four games, and is in sole possession of 4th place in program history for rushing touchdowns. His 75-yard scamper in the first quarter tied the game at 7. His three other scores were one-yard runs. However, Boston College had 28 rushing attempts gaining 161 yards. He crossed the goal line twice. The Dillon 52-yard touchdown run in the second quarter knotted the game at 21 apiece. Dillon had a 2-yard touchdown run before halftime to give the Eagles a lead they would never relinquish.
The Owls special teams would put points on the board. With the score tied at 7 Temple kicked off after Armstead’s long touchdown run. Fullback Rob Ritrovato forced a fumble on the return that was scooped up by Isaiah Graham-Mobley, who returned it 19-yards for a touchdown and a 14 – 7 Owls lead.
Cherry and White quarterback Anthony Russo threw for 255 yards on 25 completions. He was intercepted twice. Seven catches were made by Isaiah Wright for 114 yards.
In addition to Dillon, BC got 120 rushing yards from Ben Glines. The Eagles ran the ball 66 times for 275 yards.
The Owls turned the ball mover 3 times. Each turnover resulted in a BC touchdown.
Next Game – October 6 vs. ECU at The Linc Noon Kickoff
#19 VILLANOVA – Overall 3 – 2, 0 – 2 CAA
Result – Lost 29 – 27 at #13 Stony Brook
Summary – The Wildcats started the game fast getting three touchdowns on its first four possessions, but could not make it stand losing a second conference game at Stony Brook. Three Wildcat players; Zach Bednarczyk, Jack Schetelich, and Adeyemi DaSilva had touchdown passes. DaSilva, off a trick play, completed a 56-yard scoring back to running back Chenga Hodge, who has two long pass reception scores.
The Seawolves defense put two-points on the board, which proved critical, when Bednarczyk was sacked by John Hagerty with 1:31 left in the third quarter. This allowed Stony Brook to take their first lead of the game at 23 – 21. A 5-yard touchdown pass from Joe Carbone to Cal Daniels gave the Seawolves the winning-margin. Jack Schetelich had a 25-yard scoring toss to Jarrett McClenton with less than a minute to play. The Wildcats failed on the potential game tying two-point conversion.
Villanova ran for 107 yards led by Aaron Forbes with 69 yards and a score. Bednarczyk threw for 180 of the 292 Nova passing yards. Stony Brook posted 163 yards on the ground led by Donald Lionte with 78 yards crossing the goal line once. Carbone was 20 of 35 for 270 yards and 3 touchdowns. Andrew Trent caught 6 passes for 122 yards. Julius Wingate had 2 touchdown receptions. Rob Rolle made 10 tackles, 7 solo, for the Wildcats.
