Sept. 22, 2007
Worcester, Mass. - Holy Cross scored two touchdowns in the opening five minutes of the game on the way to a 55-0 Patriot League win over Georgetown at Fitton Field Saturday afternoon.
The loss drops Georgetown to 0-4 overall and 0-2 in the Patriot League, while Holy Cross improves to 2-1 overall and 1-0 in the conference.
After winning the toss, the Crusaders elected to receive and marched 60 yards on six plays over 1:57, taking a 7-0 lead on a 17-yard run from Josh Jenkins. The Hoyas could not convert on the ensuing drive and punted, giving Holy Cross the ball inside Georgetown territory. The Crusaders went 46 yards on five plays in 1:19, taking a 14-0 lead on a one-yard run from Mike Kielt.
Holy Cross was driving again, but the Hoyas forced a fumble, which was recovered by senior defensive back Kevin Cherepski (Carteret, N.J./Carteret) inside the 10-yard line. The Hoyas took control, but senior quarterback Matt Bassuener (Port Edwards, Wis./Port Edwards) fumbled on third down, giving the Crusaders the ball back. Holy Cross moved only six yards and settled for a 21-yard field goal from Matt Partain with 3:58 to play in the quarter.
In the second quarter, quarterback Dominic Randolph engineered four scoring drives, as Holy Cross scored three touchdowns and kicked a field goal. Randolph threw a 12-yard pass to Ryan McGuire to cap a 12-play, 80-yard drive early in the quarter, and then threw a 15-yard pass to Ryan Maher to finish a 12-play, 79-yard drive, making it 31-0.
The Hoyas had only two first downs in the game, the second-fewest in school history, and accumulated only 65 yards in total offense, the second-lowest number in school history. It was the first time the Hoyas had been shut out since a 33-0 loss to Colgate during the 2004 season and it was the first time the team had given up more than 50 points since a 57-7 loss to Cornell in 2005.
Georgetown returns home next weekend, hosting Ivy League foe Cornell on Homecoming Day. Kickoff for the game against the Big Red is slated for 2 p.m. at the Multi-Sport Field.
