New Hampshire’s losing streak in the Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl came to an end Saturday night.

Vermont had won the last three meetings, and outscored New Hampshire 93-15 in those three games.

New Hampshire never trailed this year. Potter capped New Hampshire’s first drive with a 7-yard touchdown run, and scored a back-breaking TD with 5:34 to play.

After Vermont cut its deficit to 14-9 on a 40-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Moore to Jake Baker with 9:27 left, New Hampshire responded with a scoring drive of its own. Emrick’s TD came on a 4-yard run. Kennett’s Sam Pollard made his third PAT to finalize the scoring.

New Hampshire sealed the win when Manchester Memorial’s Tyrique Noel intercepted a pass with 1:42 to play.

New Hampshire led 7-0 after one quarter and 7-3 at halftime. There was no scoring in the third quarter.

Mann scored New Hampshire’s other touchdown on a 8-yard run with 10:21 left in the fourth quarter. Mann’s TD plus Pollard’s kick gave New Hampshire a 14-3 lead.

Vermont’s other points came on Noah Crossman’s 23-yard field goal with 2:14 remaining in the first half

New Hampshire now has a 48-16-2 edge in the series.
