of this game

Pierre Garcon scored two touchdowns in the second half and the Purple Raiders defense held the Warhawks to three second half points to give Mount Union its ninth national championship and eighth in 11 years.

Sophomore quarterback Greg Micheli played most of the second half, rushing for a touchdown and throwing for three more to take home the Most Outstanding Player award. The turning point of the game, though, came on special teams as Matt Kostelnik blocked a Nick Croak punt which Matt Rees returned for a score to give the Purple Raiders a 27-13 lead.

The Purple Raiders cruised from there to a 35-16 win in front of 6,051 fans at Salem Stadium, sending retiring coach Bob Berezowitz and the Warhawks home without a title.

Micheli was 18-for-22 passing for 202 yards and ran for 42 more in leading Mount Union to the win. D3football.com Offensive Player of the Year Nate Kmic ran 25 times for 111 yards, much of it on a final drive in which the Purple Raiders killed the clock. Justin Beaver carried 23 times for 87 yards.
