The freshman squad couldn't sustain the momentum of its opening score.

High-scoring upperclassmen strike a confident pose.

The freshman team scored first, but the upperclassmen scored last – and every time in between – to win Thursday evening’s Homecoming Flag Football game on the intramural field. The freshmen talked a big game, as did the upperclassmen. The difference? The upperclassmen backed up their talk. After the freshmen scored to go up 7-0, the upperclassmen responded on the next play after kickoff to tie the game. After that, according to intramural assistant Jeremy R. Bottorf (who provided the game summary and photos), it was nothing but upperclassmen. Two interceptions were run back for touchdowns, then they continued their assault with a safety to make it 23-7 at halftime. The second half was no different, as the upperclassmen added three scores to end the game 44-7. The upperclassmen take a 2-1 series lead in the series, said Bottorf, who thanked everyone who participated under rain-compromised conditions. Comprising the freshman team were Kaelin Davis, David Suchoza, Phil Dillen, Mike Farbizio, Nicholas Visconti, Derck Heslbrun, Zach Bogar, Jeffrey Steele, Ben Mercadante, Matt Klock, Mike Rodarmal, Tyil Booker, Sean Carroll and Tyler Mosher. Their upperclass challengers were Tommy Walton, Jahmas Hamilton, Hernael Noel, Dan Gol, Anthony Casucci, Anthony Heimbach, Kyle Csorra, Zac Allen, Leo Mirolli, Alex Garcia, Jeff Smith, Jim Brumbaugh, Jahre Tisdale, DaQuann Mason, Joe Falkowski, Brian Vant Hoogt, Jacob Wombacker and Dan Curtin.
