Freshman Duo Teams Up for Two TDs in Football's Blue-White Game

Box Score

DURHAM, N.H. – Trevor Knight (Nashua, N.H.) and Rory Donovan (Canton, Mass.) connected for a pair of touchdown hookups, including a 19-yard connection on the final play of Thursday's Blue-White Game that closed out the University of New Hampshire football team's fall camp.

Knight completed 7 of 14 passes for 123 yards and the two scoring tosses to Donovan, who reeled in three receptions for 95 yards and two TDs.

First-string quarterback Sean Goldrich (West Haven, Conn.) paced the passing attack with 14 completions in 20 attempts for 166 yards. Goldrich was on the brink of a 50-yard touchdown pass to Kyon Taylor (Springfield, Va./4 catches-77 yards) on the final play of the first half, but Casey DeAndrade (East Bridgewater, Mass./five tackles, FF, FR) tracked down Taylor 49 yards down field, punched the ball out at the 1-yard line and recovered the ensuing fumble in the end zone.

Andy Vailas (Bedford, N.Y.) went 8 of 12 for 91 yards and a 30-yard scoring strike to Jimmy Owens (West Deptford, N.J.), who added eight rushes for 26 yards.

Donald Goodrich (York, Maine) headlined the ground attack with 45 yards on eight carries. R.J. Harris (Odenton, Md.), who caught three passes for 64 yards, tallied the lone rushing TD of the day on a 6-yard end-around.

Chris McCormick (Winooski, Vt./5-for-8, 40 yards, TD) threw a 7-yard TD pass to Kieran Presley (Amherst, Mass./5 catches-64 yards, TD) and Adam Riese (Hamilton, N.J./6-for-11, 91 yards) delivered a 4-yard TD pass to Mike Kelly (Merrimack, N.H./3 catches-14 yards, TD).

The Wildcat defense accounted for five turnovers; DeAndrade and Horace Chalstrom (Annapolis, Md.) registered fumble recoveries while Lamar Edmonds (Worcester, Mass.), Daniel Rowe (Orange, N.J.) and Nick Marino (Hudson, N.H.) each notched an interception.
