St. Anselm gridders routed in season opener
Maybe it’s time for St. Anselm College to find a new season-opening opponent.
Kevin Morton threw six touchdown passes as host 12th-ranked Kutztown (Pa.) University defeated the Hawks, 58-6, in the season opener for both football programs Thursday.
The Golden Bears captured their fifth straight season opener against St. Anselm.
Morton, who opened the scoring with a five-yard TD scamper, threw TD passes of 45, 59, 33, 20, 15 and 11.
Curtis Wortham had an 81-yard touchdown run for the Golden Bears.
Colby Tuell hauled in a pair of TD tosses in the first quarter, giving Kutztown a 35-0 lead at that point.
Morton was 31-for-45 for 409 yards.
Sophomore Stephen Cuipa of Bedford started at quarterback for the Hawks. He went 6-for-17 for 45 yards, while Ray Doucette was 5-for-8 for 52 yards. Doucette threw a 25-yard TD pass 2:40 into the second quarter to Keith Charles. The touchdown was the first points in three games at Kutztown.
The Hawks return to action Friday, Sept. 7 at 7 p.m. when they travel to Worcester, Mass., to take on Assumption College.
