Williams was able to get on the scoreboard just 38 seconds in and on their second offensive play when Marske connected with senior WR Darren Hartwell on the right side. Hartwell's leaping catch left him one yard shy of the end zone, but he managed to tumble into the end zone.

The Ephs came right back to notch three more points when Joseph Mallock nailed a 39-yard FG with 4:35 left in the first quarter.

On their first possession of the second quarter the Ephs expanded their lead to 17 when Marske and Hartwell teamed up again for a score.  Marske lofted the ball into the left corner of the end zone and Hartwell and the Colby DB went up for it, but it was Hartwell who came down with the pigskin.

With just 2:53 remaining in the first half Marske registered his third TD pass, connecting with senior WR Jeff Riemann for 19 yards. Mallock converted the PAT and the Ephs lead 24-7 and held the 17-point advantage into the halftime break.

With just over 4 minutes remaining in the third quarter Marco Hernandez finished off the Ephs' 43-yard scoring drive with a power run up the middle with one minute to play in the third period. The Eph lead had grown to 24, 31-7.

Meanwhile the Eph defense that returned just three starters from last season was busy shutting down the Mules.  On the day Williams surrendered just 159 yards of total offense, 138 through the air.

The final Eph tally came when Luke Faust lined up a 36 yard FG. The Faust attempt was blocked, but on a fortunate bounce the Ephs' John McKenna ended up with the ball and there was only green grass in front of him. McKenna he raced to pay dirt.

Mallock was successful with both PAT attempts today, added 2 punts for 69 yards and 8 kickoffs for a 500 yards. "We're glad our kick game is experienced now," noted Aaron Kelton. "Joe's been kicking since he was a freshman and he also did a great job stepping in to punt for Greg Payton today."

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."

While the home fans were ecstatic about Hartwell's record-tying accomplishment, head coach Aaron Kelton didn't seem transfixed. "We don't worry about records," he said. "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
