David Quintero's late fourth quarter interception helped seal a GU victory over Wagner
Oct. 8, 2011
The Georgetown University football team (4-2, 1-1 Patriot League) scored ten unanswered second half points to open a 14-point lead and senior safety David Quintero (Miramar, Fla./Fort Lauderdale) intercepted a pass late in the fourth quarter to seal a 24-10 victory over Wagner College (1-5, 1-2 NEC), 24-10 on Saturday afternoon at Wagner Stadium.
The Hoyas led 14-10 late in the third quarter when senior kicker Brett Weiss (Phoenix, Md./Boys' Latin) made a career-long 49 yard field goal, putting GU in front, 17-10. The fourth quarter proved to be a defensive struggle, as the teams combined for five consecutive three and out drives, before junior quarterback Isaiah Kempf (Glendale, Calif./Bridgton Academy) was flushed from the pocket on a third down and long and found junior SLOT Max Waizenegger (Fairfax, Va./W.T. Woodson) on a 71 yard touchdown pass. It was the longest reception of Waizenegger's career.
On the ensuing drive, Wagner, led by quarterback Matt Misley took the ball across midfield, but was intercepted by Quintero while taking a shot towards the Hoyas end zone, as GU would get one more first down and then kneel on the ball for the victory.
Georgetown fell behind early in the first quarter, as Jarrod Molzon helped the Seahawks take advantage of a GU fumble by connecting on a 24 yard field goal to take a 3-0 lead at the 5:12 mark.
Kempf put the Hoyas in front midway through the second quarter, capping a seven-play 48 yard drive with a six yard touchdown run, his second rushing touchdown of the season, to take a 7-3 lead. The Blue & Gray would extend the lead with 3:12 remaining in the half when sophomore running back Nick Campanella (Roselle, Ill./Montini Catholic) capped a 10 play 67 yard drive with a two yard touchdown run. Campanella finished the game with 47 yards on 13 carries.
The Hoyas defense dominated the second quarter, allowing just one drive of more than four plays, as junior linebacker Robert McCabe (Newtown Square, Pa./Malvern Prep) had 11 of his game-high 14 tackles in the first half. Freshman cornerback Chad Coleman (Flint, Mich./Carman-Ainsworth) had his first career sack in a second quarter that saw the Seahawks gain just two yards on the ground.
An early second half turnover by the Hoyas gave Wagner good field position. After missing two consecutive field goal attempts in its previous two possessions, Wagner converted a fourth down, then got a three yard touchdown run from Dominique Williams to close the Hoyas lead to four, 14-10.
Weiss would extend the lead to a touchdown, with a 49 yard field goal, giving Georgetown a 17-10 on the next possession. The Hoyas defense would hold strong the rest of the way, allowing just 68 yards on the next six combined Wagner possessions. Senior Andrew Schaetzke (Toledo, Ohio/St. John's Jesuit) constantly pressured the Seahawks' backfield, finishing with 1.5 tackles for loss and knocking down two pass attempts.
The Hoyas rushed for a combined 153 yards, as sophomore Dalen Claytor had eight carries for 49 yards. Waizenegger had four catches for 105 yards and a touchdown, his first career game over 100 receiving yards. Kempf completed 12-of-24 passes for 183 yards with a touchdown and an interception.
Georgetown returns to action on Saturday, October 15 when they travel across town to take on Howard University at 1 p.m.
