More news about: Beloit

Beloit College Buccaneers (1-1, 1-0 MWC)
at Carroll University Pioneers (2-0, 1-0 MWC)
Saturday, September 18, 2010
Schneider Stadium, Waukesha, Wisconsin

The Game: The Bucs are hoping to ride the momentum of their big win last Saturday over St. Norbert College as they hit the road for the first time in 2010.

The Teams: The Buccaneers scored their first win since 1998 in a 34-31 victory over St. Norbert College last Saturday at Strong Stadium. The Pioneers toppled Illinois College 34-20 in Waukesha.

The Coaches: Chris Brann is in his fifth season as head coach of the Buccaneers and his ninth season as a collegiate head coach. He is 1-3 against the Pioneers, 0-2 in Waukesha. Henny Heinmenz is in his fifth season as head coach of the Pioneers and as a collegiate head coach. He is 3-1 against the Bucs, 2-0 at home.

The Series: The Buccaneers and Pioneers are meeting for the 37th time in a series Beloit leads 19-16 with one tie. BU snapped a five-game CU winning streak in the series last year. Before that 2009 win, CU had won eight of the last ten meetings. The teams first met near the end of the 1907 season, a 12-11 Beloit victory.

Buccaneers Last Time Out: The Beloit College Football team got an 11-season monkey off their back last Saturday afternoon at Strong Stadium, defeating St. Norbert College 34-31. Mat Kahl kicked a 22-yard field goal with six seconds left to give Beloit the win, their first over the Green Knights since the 1998 season. The Bucs went seven plays for 65 yards in 47 seconds after SNC had tied the game up with a 29-yard field goal. The Buccaneers jumped out to a 14-0 lead less than nine minutes into the game. Brian Maughn hit Julian Ross with a 30-yard scoring pass six minutes in and then, after Vince Salucci intercepted a pass on the Green Knight's first play from scrimmage, Terence Steward rushed in from 20 yards away with 6:48 left in the opening quarter. SNC got on the board at the 3:53 mark on a two-yard run to make it 14-7. Beloit answered that score at the 12:35 mark of the second quarter on a Maughn to Derek Carrier 20-yard scoring play. SNC pulled back to within a touchdown with 1:19 remaining in the half on a 36-yard pass but, the Bucs had the last word of the half when Kahl kicked a 37-yard field goal at the buzzer, making it 24-14, Beloit, at the break. St. Norbert cut the lead to 24-21 at 8:11 of the third on a 14-yard pass for the only scoring of the quarter. Back-and-forth possessions dominated the next 20 minutes of play until a TD pass from seven yards out gave the Green Knights a 28-24 advantage with 3:06 left. The Buccaneers answered quickly, less than a minute later, when Maughn hit Odin Grina on a 69-yard scoring pass to give the lead back to Beloit at 31-28 with 2:07 left, setting up the hectic final minute. Maughn was 28-36 for 357 with one interception and the three TDs for the Bucs. Carrier and Grina each had 108 receiving yards while Ross had 102 on his team-leading nine catches. Terence Steward rushed for 106 yards on 15 carries. Defensively for the Bucs Tony Baratti had 14 total tackles while Michael Underwood, who also had a drive-ending interception in the end zone, had nine stops.
Last Time vs. the Pioneers: The Buccaneers made their 2009 home debut and opened the MWC season on Saturday, September 12, at Strong Stadium as they knocked off Carroll University 25-7 in front of 1,200 fans. Terence Steward got things rolling for the Buccaneer offense, scoring on a two-yard run to cap a 67-yard drive, less than four minutes into the contest. The Pioneers drew even five minutes later to close out the opening quarter at 7-all. The Buccaneers took control in the second quarter, with Steward going in from three yards out 7:40 and 3:11 before the half to make it 19-7, Beloit, at the break. Beloit made it 18 unanswered points at the 6:51 mark of the third quarter when Brian Maughn scored from ten yards out to finish up a ten-play, 78-yard drive. The teams were scoreless in the fourth quarter. The Bucs finished with 419 yards of offense, 244 through the air and 175 on the ground, while holding CU to 209 total yards. Maughn passed for all 244 yards while Steward had 105 yards on the ground. Derek Carrier had seven catches for 127 yards. The defense was far from quiet in the game. Tony Baratti had eight tackles, a forced fumble and an interception, which he returned for 16 yards, to lead the way while Eric Ritts, Quentin Layne and Kyle Hansgen all recorded sacks. Vince Salucci had three pass defenses and blocked a field goal try.

Individual Accolades: Brian Maughn's 28 completions last Saturday broke his own Beloit single-game record of 27, which he set at Illinois College last season (10/17/09). He is also now tied for fifth in career passing TDs with 25 (Joe Herfel, 1998-2001), and is just 16 yards away from taking over the #5 career spot in passing yardage (Jeremy Warren, 3,368, 1993-95)…Mat Kahl's 37-yard field goal as the first-half clock expired Saturday was a career-best. His previous best was 35 yards last season against Grinnell College (11/7/09)…Julian Ross, with his 102 receiving yards Saturday, is now just 21 yards away from taking over the top spot in career receiving yardage (Mike Meteyard, 2,180, 1993-96)…Tony Baratti is now third on the all-time tackles list with 351 (David Bilek, 367, 2003-06 & Dan Marsh, 360, 2003-06)…

Up Ahead for the Bucs: The Bucs return home for the annual Homecoming Game at Strong Stadium on September 25, hosting Knox College. Kickoff is at 1:00 p.m. They then play back-to-back road games to begin the second month of the season, at Grinnell College on October 2, and at Lake Forest College on October 9.
