Chargers Smoke Mercyhurst

Sorry I wasn't able to give much coverage to the Chargers this past weekend. A family trip to the Great White North...okay Grey North kept me away from most forms of communication. and the podcast will be back on top of things this week.

Here are some articles from around the web:
Hillsdale 40, Mercyhurst 21: At Hillsdale, Mich., Hillsdale jumped to a 21-6 halftime lead and it was too much for Mercyhurst in a GLIAC game.

The Lakers outscored Hillsdale 15-10 in the fourth quarter.

Four different Hillsdale rushers scored touchdowns. Phil Martin carried 17 times for 147 yards and a touchdown for Hillsdale. The Chargers had 449 yards of total offense, including 326 on the ground.

Quarterback Mark Nicolet completed 10-of-14 passes for 114 yards and a touchdown.

For the Lakers, Richard Stokes ran for 138 yards on 23 carries and a score, as Mercyhurst totaled 315 yards of offense. Joe Laffey led the passing attack with six passes for 80 yards and a touchdown.

The Lakers (2-6 overall, 2-6 GLIAC) had 175 yards of rushing offense. The Chargers improved to 4-4, 4-4.

Official Release from Hillsdale:
Oct. 21, 2006 - As Hillsdale College celebrated Parents' Weekend, there was nothing like a little home cooking to get the Charger football team back into the win column.

The Chargers rushed for a season-high 312 yards in a 40-21 victory over Mercyhurst College Saturday afternoon at Muddy Waters Stadium. Hillsdale is back to the .500 mark for the season with a 4-4 record. The Lakers fall to 2-6.

Over the past two seasons, the Chargers have enjoyed some of their biggest wins over Mercyhurst and the other GLIAC school from Erie, Gannon. Since the start of the 2005 season, Hillsdale has gone 4-0 vs. Gannon and Mercyhurst, outscoring the two teams 158-51. The Chargers' 40-21 win over the Lakers was the identical score from last year's contest, played in Erie.

The Hillsdale offensive line turned in its finest performance of the season, not allowing a sack while doing an outstanding job of blocking the Laker front seven. The Charger running backs averaged 6.4 yards per carry as a team, and had five players gain at least 36 yards on the ground.
