Dayton Football Flyers ride legs of Jake Chisholm in 49-35 win at Morehead State

 

Jake Chisholm ran around and through the Morehead State defense

Flyer Sophomore’s 268 Yards Rushing Is Second-Most In Flyer Football History

MOREHEAD, Ky. – The University of Dayton used a potent ground game to defeat Morehead State 49-35 today on the road.  Sophomore running back Jake Chisholm carried the ball 35 times for 268 yards and two touchdowns to pace the Flyers.  Chisholm’s 268 yards is the second-biggest rushing game by a Flyer running back, trailing only Connor Kacsor’s 301 yards against Georgetown (DC) in the 2014 season opener.

Dayton is now 5-3 overall and tied for third in the Pioneer Football League with a 3-2 PFL record.

 

1ST QUARTER – Dayton 28, Morehead State 7

•    Dayton opened the game with a 78-yard drive all on the ground that was finished off with a 45-yard rush by Jack Cook.

•    After a stop, the Flyers scored again on a 41-yard pass from Cook to Ryan Skibinski to take a 14-0 lead just five minutes into the game.

•    Morehead State answered quickly with a 47-yard passing touchdown to cut the lead to 14-7 with 7:53 left in the quarter.

•    Skibinski scored his second touchdown on a 10-yard rush to give the Flyers a 21-7 lead with 3:35 left in the first quarter.

•    A third touchdown for Ryan Skibinski on a 20-yard pass from Cook extended the lead 28-7.

•    The Flyers had 243 yards in the first half.

 

2ND QUARTER – Dayton 35, Morehead State 14

•    Morehead State opened the second quarter with an 11-yard touchdown pass.

•    Cook scored his fourth touchdown of the day on an 11-yard touchdown run. Dayton led 35-14 with 6:46 left in the half.

 

3RD QUARTER – Dayton 42, Morehead State 28

•    After neither team scored on their first possession of the half, Morehead State took advantage of a short field after an interception to drive 37 yards for a score.  Issiah Aguero scored on a one-yard run.

•    The Flyers answered by giving the ball to Jake Chisholm eight straight times to drive 61 yards.  The final 13 were Chisholm’s first TD of the day.

•    Morehead State came right back with a 75-yard drive, the bulk of which came on a 51-yard TD pass from quarterback Mark Pappas to Landon Hurst.

 

4TH QUARTER – Dayton 49, Morehead State 35

•    Chisholm had 43 yards on the first play of a drive that began in the third quarter, and scored his second TD of the day from 10 yards out.

•    The Eagles got another touchdown run from Aguero to make it a 14-point game (49-35) on its next series.

•    But after 84 points in the first 50 minutes of the game, neither team scored in the last 10. Dayton kept the ball for six-and-a-half minutes before punting it back to MSU.  Morehead ran 14 plays and moved the ball 77 yards, but Zach Rumpke tipped a pass on fourth-and-goal to stop the last threat of the game.

 

INSIDE THE NUMBERS

•    After gaining 117 yards on 17 carries last week in his first career start, Jake Chisholm blew both numbers out of the water with 32 rushes for 268 yards.  Only Connor Kacsor ran for more yards in a single game in a Dayton uniform (Kacsor had 301 yards on Sept. 6, 2014 in the year’s season opener against the Georgetown Hoyas).

•   Chisholm also returned a pair of kickoffs for 58 yards and caught one pass for 12, giving him 338 all-purpose yards on the afternoon.

•    Chisholm’s 7.7 yards per carry average was actually third-best on the day for UD, thanks to the work of the Flyer offensive line – Tim Roell, Dom Sciaretti, Nick Bart, Michael Niese, Jacob Brunson and Justin Karem.

•    Quarterback Jack Cook only threw the ball 14 times, but gained 88 yards on 11 carries with two TD runs.

•    Ryan Skibinski ran the ball three times for 31 yards.  He also caught a pair of passes for 61 yards.  He only had five touches on the day but scored three times.  Both of his receptions were for touchdowns, along with a 10-yard TD run.

•    Safety Brandon Easterling led UD with 14 tackles (7 solo).

•    Matt Clifford was next in tackles, with eight, and he also added an interception and pass broken up.

•    Zach Rumpke also had an interception and pass break up.

•    Defensive tackle Kyle Finnick made his first career start and chipped in 1.5 sacks.

•    Punter Allen Waltz made the most of his two punts. Averaging 40 yard per and putting both inside the 20-yard-line.

Cardinals Nolder, Green-Lauber feted with OAC Weekly honors

Greg Nolder

Luke Green-Lauber

 

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio – The Otterbein University football program has garnered a pair of weekly honors from the Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) after its first win of the season, announced by the league office Monday afternoon.

Sophomore linebacker Greg Nolder was voted Defensive Player of the Week after a standout game, while senior punter Luke Green-Lauber received Special Teams Player of the Week following another impressive performance.

Nolder (Zanesville/Tri-Valley) spearheaded a strong defensive effort in just his second career start, helped the Cardinals secure an 18-10 victory over Muskingum during a rain-soaked day at Memorial Stadium. He finished the afternoon with 10 tackles, a sack for a safety, a key interception at the goal line and also forced a fumble while covering a punt.

His first-career interception came in the opening quarter, halting a Muskingum drive that saw 3rd and 5 inside the 10. The forced fumble occurred less than two minutes later while covering a punt, allowing lineman Anthony Andrews to hop on the ball, which led to Otterbein’s first offensive touchdown. Nolder’s sack in the end zone then occurred early in the third quarter to put the Cards ahead 11-3.

Green-Lauber (Columbus/Whetstone) had himself a day with the special teams unit, helping Otterbein control the field-position battle with nine total punts for 343 yards. He averaged 38.1 yards per attempt as Otterbein punted a few times from across midfield, with LGL placing five of those inside the 20 and a pair settling at the 1-yard line. Both of those kicks ultimately led to safeties for the defense.

Green-Lauber, a returning All-OAC selection who now ranks top-15 nationally with a 41.3 net average, had a long punt of 55 yards on the day. He also had to chase down a high snap over his head early in the second quarter.

Ohio Northern All-American running back Christiaan Williams was named the league’s Offensive Player of the Week after 218 yards and three touchdowns against Capital. He surpassed the 1,000-yard mark for a third-straight season.

Cardinals finally get first win despite rainstorm, 18-10 over Muskingum

WESTERVILLE, Ohio – The Otterbein football program has weathered its share of storms this season, and fittingly persevered through one more Saturday afternoon to pick up its first win of the season throughout a rain-soaked day at Memorial Stadium.

The Cardinals, playing back at home for the first time in five weeks, held on late behind a strong defensive effort to emerge with an 18-10 triumph over Muskingum as the skies parted.

Logan Pharmer

HOW IT HAPPENED:

  • Both teams threw interceptions in the opening quarter, including sophomore linebacker Greg Nolder giving momentum back to Otterbein with a pick at the goal line.
  • The Cards took a 7-0 lead after another turnover sequence when Nolder forced a fumble while covering a punt. That ultimately led to a 10-yard scoring pass from Logan Pharmer to Dom Ross.
  • Punter Luke Green-Lauber pinned Muskingum at its own one-yard line in the second quarter, and the defense delivered a safety on a combined stuff from Brayden Stark and Austin Torr. The Muskies did make one field goal in the period but a second attempt was blocked by Niall Lewison off the edge just prior to halftime.
  • Nolder gave the Cards another safety to begin the third quarter on a sack in the end zone, and Otterbein used that field-position to then go 56 yards in just five plays. A long pass to Jacob Leonardi led to a rushing score around the right side from Jordan Bost-Floyd.
  • Muskingum made it a one-possession game early in the fourth quarter, and appeared to have scored another TD on a throwback pass late before a pair of flags. A holding call, followed by an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, erased the 26-yard play.
  • The Muskies eventually had a 4th-and-Goal at the 4-yard line before a TFL from Jacob Tiell halted the sequence. Matt Webb scampered nine yards for a game-clinching first down shortly thereafter.

INSIDE THE BOX SCORE:

  • Otterbein gets back in the win column against Muskingum after last season’s disappointing 21-14 loss in the closing seconds. The Cards had won 14-straight meeting prior to that.
  • Green-Lauber pinned five of his nine punts inside the 20, including two at the 1-yard line. He entered the week ranked 11th nationally in net average (42.1).
  • Tuchow led all players with 11 tackles while Nolder had 10 stops, one sack for the safety, a forced fumble and interception.
  • Otterbein won despite being outgained 353-189. The Cards were +2 in the turnover battle and had nine tackles for loss on defense.
