Box Score

The visiting Penn Quakers (1-0), the two-time defending Ivy League champions, ran their consecutive game winning streak to 17 with today's 61-18 win over the host USD Toreros (1-2). Penn RB Sam Mathews found the endzone three times and rushed for 102 yards on 19 carries to lead the visitors. The Toreros almost matched the visitors in total offense (443 for USD; 494 for Penn), but found the endzone just three times to Penn's 8. USD returns to Torero Stadium next Saturday, Sept. 25th, to take on another Ivy Leaguer in Princeton. Kickoff is slated for 1 pm.

Penn jumped out to a 20-0 1st quarter lead with Sam Mathews scoring on 2 and 1 yard bursts. Matt Boyer caught a 6 yarder from QB Pat McDermott for the third score and the Quakers never looked back. In the 2nd quarter Evan Nolan connected on his first two collegiate field goals from 33 and 49 yards to make it 26-0 at halftime.

Mathews scored his 3rd TD at the 9:09 mark of the 3rd period to up the score to 33-0. The Toreros got on the scoreboard at the 5:12 mark of the 3rd period when QB Todd Mortensen connected with WR Adam Hannula for a 5 yard TD. In the fourth quarter the Toreros added to more scores as Evan Harney found the endzone on a 1-yard run and redshirt freshman RB Kevin Herron scored on a 2-yard burst with 1:09 left in the game.

Mortensen finished the game 35-for-57 for 331 yards and 1 TD. Both the attempts and completions are new Torero single game marks. Junior WR Michael Gasperson caught 8 balls for 100 yards and Hannula finished with 7 catches for 91 yards. Backup QB Josh Johnson completed 2-of-4 passes for 48 yards, including a nice 45-yard hookup with Jacques Lazarus that set up Herron's score.Defensively the Toreros were paced by LB Jeff Langdon (10 tackles), DB Josh Brisco (9 stops) and sophomore DB Chase McBride (9 stops).
