WASHINGTON - Junior cornerback Jeremy Moore(New Haven, Conn./James Hillhouse) returned an interception 75 yards to help seal the Georgetown University football team's (8-2, 3-1 Patriot League) 30-13 victory over Fordham (1-8) on Senior Day for the record books at Multi-Sport Field. The victory helped the Hoyas finish the season with a perfect 4-0 record at home, the first time they have accomplished that since 1998 and will set up a Patriot League Championship game between GU and Lehigh next Saturday.
Junior linebacker Robert McCabe (Newtown Square, Pa./Malvern Prep) forced a fumble in the first quarter, intercepted a pass in the second and finished the game with 13 tackles, giving him 120 on the season, breaking the school's single-season tackles record. Senior defensive end Andrew Schaetzkehad 1.5 sacks to move into second in program history with 28.5 sacks during the victory.
Senior quarterback Scott Darby (Tewksbury, Mass./St. John's Prep) got the start on Senior Day and drove the team 61 yards on the first possession to set up Brett Weiss'sfirst of three field goals to take a quick, 3-0 lead. Darby finished the day 18-of-30 for 199 yards, a touchdown and 19 rushing yards on five carries.
McCabe forced on fumble on Fordham's second play from scrimmage and senior cornerback Jayah Kaisamba (Fort Worth, Texas/L.D. Bell) scooped it up and returned it 22 yards down to the Rams 10 yard line. Two plays later Nick Campanella(Roselle, Ill./Montini Catholic) scored from four yards out for his eighth rushing touchdown of the season, putting GU in front 10-0.
The Rams offense responded, putting together a nine play drive to set up Michael Marando's 41 yard field goal to cut the lead to a touchdown, at 10-3. Marando hit another field goal with less than two minutes left in the first quarter to make the game 10-6 at the end of the quarter.
Weiss extended the Hoyas lead early in the second quarter with a 40 yard field goal, giving the Blue & Gray a 13-6 lead, the eventual halftime score.
Darby came out throwing in the third quarter, as Max Waizenegger (Fairfax, Va./W.T. Woodson) made a one-handed grab for a 35 yard completion. Five plays later, Darby found a wide open Patrick Ryan(Westlake, Ohio/St. Ignatius) for a 26 yard touchdown to give the Hoyas a 20-6 lead.
Fordham came back early in the fourth quarter with a nine play, 52 yard drive capped by a one yard touchdown run by Carlton Koonce to cut the lead to a score at 20-13. That is when Moore took over, returning the ensuing kick-off 73 yards to set up Weiss's eventual 18 yard field goal, once again making it a two possession game.
Though on Fordham's next possession Moore jumped in front of a screen pass, made an acrobatic interception and returned it 75 yards for a touchdown, to all but seal the Georgetown victory, at 30-13.
