Chapman Game Notes (10/9/10)

More news about: Chapman

Last Week vs. Pomona-Pitzer
Chapman got its first win of 2010, defeating Pomona-Pitzer 41-17 at Wilson Field. Down 10-7 at halftime, the Panthers scored three touchdowns in the first eight minutes of the third quarter to take control of the game. Junior RB Al White and senior RB Akio Lloyd each had a pair of touchdowns for the Panthers.

Scoring Machine
Chapman had gone 11 games in a row without scoring 30 points. So then it was a bit surprising when the Panthers put up 34 in the second half on Saturday against Pomona-Pitzer. Those 34 points in a half are a team record under head coach Bob Owens and the first time the Chapman offense has scored 40-plus points in a game since 2007.

A Game of Firsts vs. Pomona-Pitzer
As mentioned above, the win marked the Panthers' first of the season but there were several other firsts as well. Senior S Jake Fey got his first-career interception in the first quarter. Also in the game, White, junior QB DeShawn Wilkins and sophomore RB Chad Milburn each had their first-career rushing TDs. In addition, Lloyd had his first 100-yard rushing game of the season. Also, former starting QB Blake Vanderwiel who is now playing linebacker had his first-career sack.

Running Wild
Chapman rushed for 244 yards against Pomona-Pitzer while 10 players got at least one carry. The last time Chapman had over 200 yards rushing in a game was on Mike Christensen's record-setting day against Whittier in 2008. Christensen ran for 262 of the team's 263 rushing yards in the 35-21 win over the Whittier, breaking Chapman's previous single-game rushing record by four yards.

Lloyd Just Three Yards Short of 1,000 for Career
Lloyd had 100 rushing yards against Pomona-Pitzer leaving him just three yards short of 1,000 for his career. When Lloyd accomplishes the feat, he will become just the sixth Chapman player to reach 1,000 career rushing yards. The last Chapman player to reach 1,000 career rushing yards was Christensen who had 1,001.

Rare Picks
Senior DB's Jake Meyer and Jake Fey each had an interception against Pomona-Pitzer. You have to go back to Chapman's 21-7 season-opening win over Menlo College in 2009 to find the last game that Chapman had two interceptions in a game.

Adranly Maintains Top-10 Ranking
Junior P Jimmy Adranly punted four times last week - all good ones - and once again tied his career best with a 55-yarder. All four punts landed inside the opponents' 20-yard line for an average of 44.8 yards. Adranly boosted his season average to 42.8 yards per punt, currently ranking No. 10 in all of Division III.

Soccer Swap
When the Panthers and Stags kickoff at 7 p.m. in Claremont on Saturday night, the Chapman men's soccer team will also be kicking off at home against Bethesda Christian at the same time. This is significant because three members of Chapman's kicking unit also play soccer. So Owens and CU men's soccer coach Eddie Carrillo made a deal: Adranly and backup K Nick Echeverry go with football and starting K Mauricio Alfonso stays with soccer. Echeverry and Alfonso are two of Chapman's top three goal scorers for a Panther soccer team fighting for a playoff berth.

Chapman vs. Claremont
The Panthers are 5-1 all-time against Claremont, including winning the last three meetings in a row. Last year's matchup in Orange, Chapman won 13-9, scoring all 13 points in the first quarter. The Panthers' defense did the rest, limiting the Stags to 80 passing yards and didn't allow a touchdown until the fourth quarter. The last time the two teams met in Claremont, the Panthers won 21-7.

Claremont in 2010
The Stags are averaging over 40 points per game in their first three games this season and have already scored more points (122) than they did in their first seven games combined in 2009 (114). The 40.6 points per game ranks them 20th nationally in scoring offense. The Stags rely primarily on their run game which is averaging 231 yards per game, good enough for 22nd nationally. Claremont's 3-0 start is its best since 2002 when the team began the season 7-0.

Claremont in the National Rankings
Claremont is not only scoring points, they are keeping opponents out of the endzone. The Stags' defense ranks No. 8 in Division III in rush defense, allowing just 63.3 yards per game on the ground. Claremont also ranks 18th and 16th in quarterback sacks and tackles for loss, respectively. Sophomore DE Eric Janicki leads the way with 1.3 sacks per game.
