Gallaudet defeats Mount Ida for the first time in school history

More news about: Gallaudet

WASHINGTON, D.C. – It was not a pretty football game on Saturday afternoon between two of the top teams in the Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) but in the end Gallaudet University hung on to beat Mount Ida College, 29-22, for the first time in school history.

The Bison (6-3, 4-2 ECFC) scored the game's first 22 points to excite the 350 fans, who braved the elements on a blustery and cold day at Hotchkiss Field on Senior Day. Mount Ida (7-2, 5-1 ECFC) responded out of halftime down, 22-0, with two touchdown drives before Gallaudet answered with its fourth touchdown late in the third quarter.

The visiting Mustangs, who enter tied for first in the conference with Castleton State, made things interesting when it scored a touchdown on a 53-yard pass from Scott Drosendahl to Dejhaun Williams at the 8:54 mark in the fourth quarter. The touchdown pass was the third for Drosendahl, who ended the day 17-for-26 for 240 yards but was sacked six times and threw four interceptions. Williams made a game-high five receptions for 153 yards and two touchdowns.

Gallaudet punted and turned the ball over on downs on its next two possessions as the final minute ticked off the scoreboard. Mount Ida drove to the Gallaudet 21 with 49 seconds left in regulation but the Mustang threat ended when senior cornerback Tony Tatum (Gardendale, Ala.) jumped an Ida route on the near side of the field and intercepted Drosendahl with 44 seconds left. The Bison took a knee to seal the victory.

GU reaches six wins for the first time under head coach Chuck Goldstein and the first since the 2009 season (6-4, 4-2 ECFC). The Bison are in position, with one more conference game, to set a program best mark for wins in a season and conference wins since the team was elevated back to Division III in 2007.

The Bison defense smothered the Mustangs in the first half and was constantly in the backfield bringing down Drosendahl or any Mustang ball carrier. Gallaudet racked up 10 tackles for a loss of 59 yards to go with six sacks for a loss of 36 yards, four interceptions and one fumble recovery.
