Football Dumps Waynesburg on Homecoming
11/03/2001

FROSTBURG, MD — Senior DeNelle Hale (Baltimore, Md./Dunbar) gained 73 of his game-high 124 rushing yards in the second half and scored a pair of touchdown as Frostburg State dumped visiting Waynesburg College, 36-13, in front of 2,431 fans on Homecoming Saturday afternoon at Bobcat Stadium.

The Bobcats (4-4) won the opening toss and quickly moved the ball from their own 36-yard line to the Wayneburg six.

Sophomore Grant Burrough (Bel Air, Md./C. Milton Wright) hit junior Tim Wilkins (Baltimore, Md./Mervo) for an eight-yard gain on the first play of the afternoon, and a Yellow Jacket personal foul put the ball inside Waynesburg territory.

Burrough then scrambled 32 yards to the nine, and freshman Nick Quisgard (Baltimore, Md./John Carroll) booted a 23-yard field goal four plays later to give FSU a 3-0 lead just 1:10 into the game.

Burrough ran for a career-high 107 yards and also completed 15-of-24 passes for 207 yards and a touchdown.

Waynesburg (3-6), which brought a 22-10-1 all-time series lead into the game, used a big play from its special teams to move in front later in the first quarter, as Mark Harnish blocked a Quisgard punt and recovered the ball at the FSU seven.

Tom Naughton found Brian Cence in the end zone on the next play, and Scott Gusic's extra point gave the Yellow Jackets a 7-3 advantage.

The lead would last just 50 seconds, however, as Hale took a screen pass from Burrough along the near sideline and raced 71 yards into the end zone, shaking three Waynesburg defenders over the final 20 yards. FSU's extra point attempt failed, and the Bobcats led, 9-7.

Frostburg State, which scored just 21 points in the second quarter in its first seven games, posted 13 points in the second stanza to build a 22-7 halftime advantage.

Freshman fullback Bereket Godsey (Baltimore, Md./Eastern Tech) dove in from two yards out to cap a nine-play, 71-yard drive, and Burrough added a one-yard scoring run following sophomore linebacker James Plummer's (Washington, D.C./Archbishop Carroll) first career interception.

Not to be outdone, the Frostburg State defense came up with an impressive stop late in the third quarter. The Yellow Jackets moved from their own 38 to the Bobcat four but came up short of the end zone despite eight plays from inside the seven.

Waynesburg running back Sadane Munoz was stuffed on back-to-back carries from the one, and he fumbled on his next attempt to move the ball back to the seven. Naughton's pass into the end zone fell incomplete, and Scott Gusic's 24-yard field goal attempt hit the left upright.

The Bobcats then marched 80 yards in just nine plays, with sophomore Edward Kearney (Bel Air, Md./Calvert Hall) capping the drive with a 28-yard scoring run around the left end of the line to give FSU a commanding 29-7 lead.

Waynesburg was thwarted again when Bobcat sophomore linebacker Andy Wilson (LaVale, Md./Allegany) intercepted Jeff Dumm's pass in the end zone with 7:44 remaining, and Hale scored on a one-yard run with 4:19 to play to put the Bobcats up, 36-7.

Dumm threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Kenyon McAfee with 2:59 left to conclude the scoring.

Waynesburg senior Orlando Magruder ran 20 times for 111 yards before leaving the game with a leg injury towards the end of the third quarter. Naughton completed 14-of-24 passes for 131 yards but was picked off twice.

Wilson, Plummer and senior Derek Kirk (Silver Spring, Md./Chopticon) led the Bobcats with 10 tackles each. Jeff Johnson posted a game-high 11 tackles for Wayneburg, while Bryce Cree added 10 stops.

Frostburg State will close out its season against cross-state rival Salisbury University in the Third Annual Regents Cup at R.F.K. Stadium in Washington, D.C. on Saturday at 1:30 p.m.
