HAMILTON, N.Y. - The Georgetown University football team (3-2, 2-1 Patriot League) fell to Colgate University (2-3, 1-0 Patriot League) 34-3 at Andy Kerr Stadium in Hamilton, N.Y. on Saturday afternoon. The loss was the Hoyas first Patriot League loss of the season, as Colgate was able to control the clock against the Blue & Gray with its running game.
The Hoyas offense was held to a season-low 41 offensive plays for 91 total yards, as Colgate's offense controlled the ball for close to 40 minutes. QB Isaiah Kempf (Glendale, Calif./Bridgton Academy) completed 8-of-13 passes for 55 yards and Philip Oladeji (Plano, Texas/East Plano) had 13 yards on five carries. Safety Wayne Heimuli (Euless, Texas/Trinity) had 13 tackles, while linebacker Nick Parrish (Irving, Texas/Jesuit College Prep) had 10 tackles in the loss.
Colgate imposed its deliberate rushing attack on Georgetown early, controlling the ball for the first eight minutes of the game before Evan Colborne kicked a 20-yard field goal to put the Raiders in front, 3-0 in the first quarter.
Jeremy Moore (New Haven, Conn./James Hillhouse) returned a kick 34 yards to the 50 yard line and Scott Darby moved the Hoyas quickly into Colgate territory. Georgetown came away with a field goal of its own, as Brett Weiss (Phoenix, Md./Boys' Latin) converted on a 38-yarder, his second of the season and longest of his career to tie the score at three.
Nate Eachus, who ran for over 100 yards in the first half, would cap an 18 play 90 yard drive that took over nine minutes off the clock with a one yard touchdown run, to put the Raiders in front 10-3. Colborne added a field goal with four seconds remaining in the half to send Colgate into the locker room with a 13-3 lead.
In the second half Colgate continued to move the ball behind Eachus, who scored his second touchdown from two yards out at the 5:58 mark in the third quarter to take a 20-3 lead. The score completed a short drive set up by a Georgetown fumble.
In the fourth quarter, Eachus would break through twice, both scores coming on carries of less than three yards to lead Colgate a 34-3 victory. Eachus carried the ball 44 times for 220 yards and four touchdowns on the afternoon.
Moore had four kick returns for 93 yards, including a long of 34 yards for Georgetown. Linebacker Patrick O'Donnell (Media, Pa./Penncrest) had seven tackles and forced a fumble, while Jayah Kaisamba (Fort Worth, Texas/LD Bell) had nine tackles in the loss.
