The Ephs showcased surprising depth on the field today, with standout performances from WRs Richie Beaton, Jeff Brewington '14 and the running Jean Luc Etienne '15. Kelton was pleased, "That's what we're trying to build. We're trying to create that depth because we continue to be a young team."

"In fact, we didn't know about it." Kelton is confident in Hartwell's talents and describes him as, "one of the most dynamic players in this league. I can't say [the record] is really a surprise."

"Trinity's coming here next week and we're looking forward to it," Kelton said of next week's match-up. "It'll be a welcome challenge." The Ephs will take on the Bantams next Saturday at Weston Field. Kick-off is scheduled
