WASHINGTON - WASHINGTON - Quarterback Isaiah Kempf threw two touchdown passes and rushed for one, as the Georgetown University football team (1-1, 0-0 Patriot League) defeated Davidson (0-1, 0-0 Pioneer League) 42-6, in front of a sold-out crowd at Multi-Sport Field in the Hoyas season-opener.
The Hoyas celebrated the Scotty Glacken Alumni Weekend in style in front of the capacity crowd, as six different Hoyas scored touchdowns. Kempf completed 16-of-23 passes for 185 yards and two touchdowns, while rushing for 37 yards and another one. Senior linebacker Dustin Wharton (LaVale, Md./Allegany) returned an interception 24 yards for a touchdown, while Sean Campbell (Middletown, N.J./Middletown South) had five tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss and three quarterback hurries in the victory.
The Wildcats, under first year Head Coach Paul Nichols opened the game in strong fashion, driving down to the Hoyas' 12 yard line, but Jordan Richardson and Hunter Kiselick came through the line to block a field goal, keeping Davidson scoreless.
Rohan Williamson (Silver Spring, Md./Good Counsel) intercepted a Davidson pass on the Wildcats following drive at the Davidson 25 yard line to set up the Hoyas first score. Senior Nick Campanella (Roselle, Ill./Montini Catholic) capped the five-play drive with a two yard touchdown run, giving the Hoyas a 7-0 lead with one minute remaining in the first quarter.
Davidson answered late in the second quarter, as Reese Williams caught a four-yard touchdown pass from Jonathan Carkhuff, but Ettian Scott blocked the extra point to keep GU in front by one point, 7-6 with 10:55 remaining in the first half.
Isaiah Kempf and the Hoyas moved the ball down the field quickly on the ensuing drive. Zack Wilke had a 12 yard reception, and Jake DeCicco's 17 yard reception kept the drive alive on a third down, before Dalen Claytor rushed in from 12 yards out to give the Hoyas a 14-6 lead with 8:28 remaining in the half.
After a failed fake punt, the Hoyas wasted little time getting back on the scoreboard. Kempf followed with a 22-yard touchdown pass to DeCicco, for his first career touchdown reception. MacZura converted the point after to give GU a 21-6 lead.
The Hoyas struck again less than 15 seconds later, as Dustin Wharton intercepted Carkhuff's pass and returned it 24 yards for a GU touchdown, putting the Hoyas in front 28-6 at the half.
Georgetown capitalized on a shanked Davidson punt early in the third quarter, as Kempf capped the two-play drive with a six-yard touchdown pass to Daniel Sprotte with 11:41 left in the third quarter, giving GU a 35-6 lead.
Kempf scored the Hoyas final touchdown on a 15 yard run, capping a 13-play 77 yard drive to seal the Hoyas 42-6 victory.
The Hoyas are in action next Saturday when they host another Pioneer League opponent in Marist. Kick-off is scheduled for 6:05 p.m. Tickets are still available by visiting - www.wearegeorgetown.com.
