MIDDLEBURY, Vt. – Middlebury racked up 532 yards of total offense on its way to a 42-20 win over the Jumbos (1-7) on Youngman Field at Alumni Stadium. The Panthers finish the season winning three of their last four games to earn a 4-4 mark. Senior quarterback Donald McKillop capped his record-breaking career by going 29 of 41 for 339 yards with a school-record six touchdown passes. After punting on its first possession, Middlebury scored on its next four to hold a 28-14 lead. Tufts took a 7-0 lead on a three-yard connection from Anthony Fucillo to Pat Nee at the 7:00 mark of the first half. A 25-yard connection from Fucillo to Dylan Haas was the big play on the drive for the Jumbos. Middlebury answered on its next possession, driving 78 yards on 10 plays. Gary Cooper rushed seven times for 43 yards on the drive, as McKillop hit Zach Driscoll from 16 yards out to tie the game at 7-7. Tufts responded after a 40-yard kick-off return by Pat Bailey gave them the ball at their own 43. Nine plays later, Bailey scored on a one-yard rush to give the Jumbos a 14-7 advantage late in the first quarter. The Panthers tied the game, driving 73 yards, with 42 of them coming on three completions from McKillop to Nick Resor. Tight end David Reed scored the touchdown, pulling down a four-yard strike from McKillop at the 11:44 mark. Following a Tufts punt, Middlebury drove 77 yards on just seven plays, with McKillop connecting with Matt Rayner over the middle for the score from five yards out. Four plays later, Middlebury's Daniel Kenerson picked off a pass at the 50, setting up a beautiful 50-yard connection from McKillop to Rayner on the next play to make it a 28-14 Panther lead with 5:06 left in the first half. Tufts quickly drove 73 yards on five plays late in the half, cutting the lead to 28-17 with a 27-yard field goal from Adam Auerbach as the first half expired.
