Bison defense picks off Husson in fourth quarter, late field goal keeps Gallaudet perfect

More news about: Gallaudet

WASHINGTON – The undefeated Gallaudet University football team needed a spark in the fourth quarter to break through a defensive stalemate between Husson University in a showdown of the top two teams in the Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC). The Bison defense caused four turnovers on Husson's final four possessions in the fourth and sophomore Chase Magsig (Hudsonville, Mich.) booted home a 26-yard field goal with 3:09 left in regulation as the Bison celebrated a 16-13 homecoming victory before 3,023 at Hotchkiss Field.

The Bison (7-0, 4-0 ECFC) continue its best start in program history and increased their winning streak to nine games dating back to last season.

Gallaudet, who entered the game leading Division III in rushing, was held to a season low 166 yards on the ground and only tallied 260 yards of offense. Husson senior defensive tackle Ernest Wiggins (six tackles) was a difference maker as the Bison had trouble running up the middle against a strong defensive line.

Sophomore quarterback Todd Bonheyo (Frederick, Md.) finished the game 3-for-7 for 94 yards and one touchdown, a 42-yard pass to his older brother Ryan Bonheyo (Frederick, Md.) midway through the first quarter as GU led 6-0. Todd finished with 28 rushing yards on 16 carries while Ryan chalked up 46 yards on eight attempts.

Husson senior tailback Byron Jackson became the first 100-yard rusher against the Bison defense this season as he recorded 111 yards on 16 carries. Jackson tied the game with a 1-yard run at the 5:18 mark in the first quarter. His game-high 64-yard run, two plays prior, set-up the Eagles (4-3, 3-1 ECFC) score and knotted the game at six.

The Bison put together their longest drive of the game, nine plays and 68 yards, at the end of the first and through the start of the second quarter. A key reverse 18-yard run by freshman Chris Papacek (Cuero, Texas) got the Bison down to the Husson 1-yard line. Sophomore Braxton Baker (Webb City, Mo.) capped the drive with the 1-yard touchdown to the upper left corner of the end zone. Baker also had two receptions for 52 yards in the game.

GU started a drive, just under three minutes before halftime, and sophomore running back BJ Flores (Raymondville, Texas) fumbled on the first play at the Gallaudet 22. Flores led the Bison with 63 rushing yards on 19 carries. On the next play, Husson used a double reverse to Shabashe McIntosh, who scampered up the middle to the end zone, and tie the game once more as the teams went into intermission.
