The Sunday Paper

What would Sundays be without a good read? Well, since our server remains out of commission, we decided to provide you with links to stories from around the Conference right here. So grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!

Mules Jump on Bullets Early, Win 42-21 (Allentown Morning Call)
Muhlenberg College scored on its first play of the game then twice late to preserve a lead en route to a convincing 42-21 Homecoming win over Gettysburg on Saturday at Scotty Wood Stadium's Frank Marino Field. The victory pushed the Mules to 3-0 and extended their Centennial Conference winning streak to 14, tied for second all-time with Dickinson (1987-88), 16 behind McDaniel (1997-99).

Moravian Defense Comes Up Big in Rout of Hopkins (Allentown Morning Call)
Moravian did not have to wait long for things to start going its way Saturday afternoon in its Centennial Conference game against Johns Hopkins. Six seconds in, Johns Hopkins fumbled the opening kickoff and Moravian had generated the first of five turnovers.

F&M Runs by Juniata (Lancaster Sunday News)
Any football coach will tell you that when playing in miserable weather conditions, field position is the biggest factor in who wins the game. Such was the scenario Saturday at Sponaugle-Williamson Field when Franklin & Marshall hosted Juniata in a driving rain that fell for the majority of the afternoon.

Terror Takeaway: McDaniel Football Upsets Dickinson (Carroll County Times)
Gregory Lord just lost it. Running with plenty of open field in front of him, torrential rain coming down sideways and wind blowing in his face, the Dickinson running back just dropped the wet football. No contact or jarring hit rattled it loose. It simply slipped out.

Moravian College Takes Early Lead, Controls Johns Hopkins' High-Powered Offense in 33-10 Centennial Conference Victory (The Express-Times)
Tyler McCambridge set the tone early. And Moravian College's bend-but-don't-break defense took over from there. McCambridge scored two touchdowns in the first five minutes and the Greyhounds held one of the Centennial Conference's top offenses in check Saturday in posting a 33-10 victory over Johns Hopkins in a battle of unbeatens at Rocco Calvo Field.
