Minutemen win third straight game

The Mount Saint Joseph Mounties were in action last Saturday too, seeking their first win of the 2007 season, but they wouldnt get it. The BFA-St. Albans Bobwhites playing in front of their hometown fans were to much for the Mounties, sending them home winless at 0 - 4 after administering a 27 - 6 thrashing. The lone Mounty score came in the fourth quarter when they were trailing 27 - 0. Quarterback Will Hadeka connected with Richie Kussel for a 25 yard touchdown pass.

The Poultney Blue Devils dropped a heartbreaker last Saturday in Hinesburg to the CVU Redhawks 27 - 20. It was a see saw type battle in which Poultney was never behind until the end. The Blue Devils jumped out to a 7 - 0 lead when Ricky Ross scored from two yards out late in the first quarter. But CVU answered with a scoring drive capped off by a two-yard touchdown run by Jake Nealy to cut the lead to 7 - 6. Ryan Davenport then finished a Poultney second quarter scoring drive with a touchdown run that put the Blue Devils on top 14 - 6.

But the lead was short lived as the Redhawks would find the end zone again before the half and nail the two point conversion, tying the game at 14 - 14 at the half. Ross would then score his second touchdown of the day on a 20-yard run giving Poultney back the lead 20 - 14, but this lead literally lasted just a few seconds. CVUs Mark Talley returned the ensuing kickoff seventy yards for the game tying touchdown. Then with just over two minutes left in the game Talley picked off a pass and returned it 42 yards to give CVU the 27 - 20 win. Poultney will host the red hot Mill River Minutemen this Saturday at noon.
