Saturday, September 04, 2010 Charger football team opens season with decisive win over Ferris State, 35-17

September 3, 2010 - After so much discussion and reminiscing over the Hillsdale College 2009 football season, the 2010 team took a solid first step towards establishing its own successful legacy.

The Chargers played an extremely efficient game, particularly on offense, and opened the new season with a 35-17 victory over Ferris State University in the first-ever Friday night game at Frank “Muddy” Waters Stadium. The 16th-ranked Chargers open GLIAC play next Saturday on the road, taking on defending conference champ Grand Valley State.

In this non-league matchup of longtime rivals, Hillsdale led by as many as 32 points, while dissecting the Bulldogs on both sides of the ball throughout the contest. The Charger defense did an excellent job of halting Ferris State drives before they reached threatening territory, and Hillsdale’s experience and skill on offense were on full display.

Sophomore running back Joe Glendening was one of several Hillsdale players to shine in their first collegiate starts. He ran the ball 19 times for 88 yards, and scored Hillsdale’s first two touchdowns of the game. He averaged 4.6 yards per carry and was not tackled for a loss during the game. He opened the scoring on the season for the team with a nice five-yard run at the 4:07 mark of the first quarter. He bounced off two defenders, cut to the left and found the end zone to put Hillsdale ahead 7-0.
