09/27/2003

BROCKPORT, NY — SUNY Brockport junior quarterback Bob Darnley completed 16-of-25 passes for 166 yards and three touchdowns and also ran for 70 more yards to lead the nationally ranked Golden Eagles to a 37-14 win over Frostburg State Saturday afternoon at Special Olympics Stadium.

The Golden Eagles improved to 4-0 overall and matched the best start since 2000, while the Bobcats fell to 1-2 with their second straight loss.

Brockport, ranked No. 6 by Don Hansen's Football Gazette and No. 9 by the American Football Coaches Association, dominated the first half, scoring on five of its first six possessions en route to a 34-0 halftime lead.

Darnley opened the scoring with a seven-yard pass to Brian Wise, and Hash Smith added a 16-yard fumble return for a touchdown to give the Golden Eagles a 14-0 lead after the first quarter.

Brockport then blew things open with a 20-point second quarter. Darnley hit Jake Haught with another seven-yard score just 1:52 into the period and Brian Wise capped an 80-yard drive with a three-yard run at 7:29.

Darnley then found Matt Boorom with yet another seven-yard scoring pass with 2:59 left in the half to give Brockport the commanding 34-0 lead at the break.

The Golden Eagles completed their scoring on Mike Laney's 23-yard field goal with 12 seconds left in the third quarter, capping a 15-play, 74-yard drive that lasted 5:34.

Frostburg State, which fell to Montclair State 27-3 last week, got on the board just 1:05 into the fourth quarter when senior tight end Roy Olson (Lexington Park, Md./Great Mills) hauled in a 29-yard scoring strike from senior quarterback Grant Burrough (Bel Air, Md./C.Milton Wright).

Burrough then found sophomore Adam J. Snyder (Scottdale, Pa./South Moreland) for a 12-yard touchdown pass with 6:28 left.

Brockport outgained Frostburg State 381-187 on the afternoon, including 209-28 on the ground. The Golden Eagles held the Bobcats to just four first downs and 48 total yards in the first half.

Burrough finished 13-of-19 for 159 yards and two touchdowns and was intercepted once. Olson caught two passes for a game-high 53 yards.

Junior Mike Kitchen (Lebanon, Pa./Lebanon) led FSU with 13 carries for 39 yards.
