Philadelphia, Pa. - Penn running back Joe Sandberg has 13 carries for 117 yards and two touchdowns in the first half as the host Quakers scored four times in the first quarter en route to a 42-13 win over Georgetown at Franklin Field in Philadelphia Saturday afternoon.
The loss for Georgetown was the sixth-straight this season, and the seventh-straight dating back to last season, as the Hoyas fell to 0-6 overall. Penn improved to 1-3 this year.
The Quakers jumped out to a quick lead, scoring on the first drive of the game when Salmon capped a nine-play, 83-yard drive with a four-yard run at 10:31. After Georgetown went three-and-out on its next drive, Penn quarterback Bryan Walker engineered an 11-play, 71-yard drive that ate up 4:34 and was capped on a five-hard pass to Jason Miran.
Penn added two more scores late in the quarter to open up a 28-0 lead. A 38-yard run by Michael DiMaggio run with less than a minute left in the half was followed by a Georgetown fumble on the first play of the next series. With a short field in front of them, the Quakers needed only two plays and 13 yards - a Sandberg 13-yard run - to increase the margin to four scores.
Georgetown got on the scoreboard in the third quarter when senior quarterback Matt Bassuener (Port Edwards, Wis./Port Edwards) threw a 17-yard pass to senior fullback Kyle Van Fleet (Williamsport, Pa./Loyalsock), capping a 12-play, 69-yard drive.
The Quakers responded with another score, making it 42-6, but the Hoyas drove right back. Bassuener threw an 11-yard pass to Van Fleet, capping a seven-play, 57-yard drive and making it 42-13.
Bassuener finished the game completing 14-of-25 passes for 123 yards and two scores while Van Fleet caught five passes for 44 yards and had six carries for 22 yards. Sophomore defensive back Travis Mack (West Chester, Pa./The Hill School) and freshman linebacker Nick Parrish (Irving, Texas/Jesuit College Prep) led the defense with six tackles apiece.
Georgetown returns back to the Hilltop next weekend, hosting Patriot League rival Fordham. Kickoff at the Multi-Sport Field is slated for 1 p.m.
