Saint Anselm defeats Bentley

MANCHESTER — Fifth year captain Anthony Brown caught his first two touchdowns of the season as the Saint Anselm College football team defeated Bentley University 24-17 on Saturday afternoon at Grappone Stadium. It was Saint Anselm’s second victory in program history over the Falcons. The first came in 2014.


Western Connecticut 55, Plymouth State 20

DANBURY, Conn. – Junior Willie Lombard ran for a career-high 117 yards and two touchdowns, but Western Connecticut State University amassed over 500 yards of total offense to top Plymouth State University, 55-20, in a Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) game at Westside Athletic Complex on Saturday afternoon.

Things started well for the Panthers after forcing back-to-back punts on WestConn’s first two drives. Senior Nikos Bouzakis got through the line to block the Wolves’ first punt, but PSU was unable to get points on the board despite the good field position.


Yale 31, Dartmouth 24

HANOVER — Although Dartmouth amassed nearly 100 more yards and held the ball for close to 11 more minutes than visiting Yale, the Bulldogs were able to overcome the disadvantage with several big plays, earning a 31-24 victory on an overcast and humid Saturday afternoon at Memorial Field. The winning score came with 5:52 remaining in the game when Nolan Grooms connected with Ryan Lindley for a 69-yard touchdown, breaking a 24-24 deadlock and lifting Yale (2-2, 1-1 Ivy) to its first conference win of the season.

Nick Howard ran for 87 of the Big Green’s 221 yards on the ground, including a pair of touchdowns for Dartmouth (2-2, 1-1 Ivy) and Paxton Scott had a touchdown grab among his five receptions — giving him 100 for his career — but three interceptions and a tough-luck turnover on a punt proved to be the difference in the game.
