NH College Football Roundup: Pierre, Dartmouth tip Brown

Senior Dominick Pierre rushed 18 times for 94 yards and the go-ahead touchdown to lead Dartmouth to a 24-20 win over Brown in Providence, R.I., on Saturday.

The Big Green improved to 5-4 overall and 4-2 in the Ivy League.

They fell out of the running for a share of the league title when Princeton knocked off Yale, 59-23 on Saturday. Princeton is 8-1 and 6-0 and plays at Dartmouth next Saturday.

Brown, 5-4 overall and 2-4 in the Ivy League, drove down to the Big Green 30 on its final drive, but an incomplete pass on fourth-and-5 with 1:25 left ended the threat.

Dartmouth jumped out to a 14-0 lead before Brown roared back with 17 straight points. Pierre's 2-yard TD late in the third period gave him at least one rushing score in all nine games this season.

The Bears were not done, however, as quarterback Patrick Donnelly drove them into the red zone. Brown was forced to settle for a 31-yard field goal by Alexander Norocea, making it 21-20 with 10:48 left in the game.

Both teams went three-and-out on their next possessions before Williams found senior Robbie Anthony across the middle of the field for a 42-yard gain. Pierre posted runs of 5 and 10 yards before the drive stalled at the Brown 4.

Freshman Alex Gakenheimer kicked a 21-yard field goal for the four-point lead with just 3:23 left.




Bentley 56, St. Anselm 41: At Waltham, Mass., freshman quarterback Yianni Gavalas, junior wide receiver Justin Bernard, junior wide receiver Ahkeen Williams and senior running back Keith Charles all broke records with monster days, but No. 9 St. Anselm lost to No. 6 Bentley in a Northeast-10 Championship Weekend slugfest.

The Hawks wrap up their season at 1-10, while the Falcons finish at 6-5.

Gavalas completed a program-record 51 passes on 74 attempts, which matched the school record, for a career-high 559 yards and four touchdowns. The passing yardage is the second most in a single game in program history.

Bernard, meanwhile, became the first Hawk ever to reach 3,000 yards receiving as he caught 11 passes for 171 yards.

Bernard, who ended the day with 3,140 career receiving yards, broke his own record for receiving yards in a season as he finished with 1,146.

Williams produced his best game of the season as he caught a career-high 14 balls for 158 yards and matched Bernard's school record with three touchdown catches.

Charles ran 12 times for 41 yards and two touchdowns, made five catches for 58 yards and returned five kicks for 65 yards as he captured Marc Wilson's all-time all-purpose yard mark with 5,687 yards.

St. Anselm set new single-season marks in the game for total touchdowns (45) completions/catches (330), passing/receiving yards (3,431), total offense (4,471) and all-purpose yards (6,237).

The 613 yards of total offense in the game for the Hawks is the second-most ever in program history.


Fitchburg State 41, Plymouth State 30: At Fitchburg, Mass., freshman Garrett Dellechiaie threw five touchdown passes and became the program's all-time single season TD pass holder Saturday afternoon to lead Fitchburg State.

Plymouth State finished the season at 2-8 overall and 1-7 in the MASCAC.

Plymouth State had 392 yards of offense. Junior Mark Hennessy led the rushing attack for the Panthers, totaling 82 yards on 20 carries.

Quarterback Drew Bolton finished 9-of-19 for 184 yards, one TD and three picks. Receiver Zac Iovanella was also solid with two catches for 105 yards and three rushes for 30 yards.

Fitchburg State had its first winning season since the 2005 campaign and now awaits a bid to an ECAC bowl game with an overall mark of 6-4 and 5-3 record in the MASCAC.
