Good weekend all around

Needless to say, there were few complaints after Yale opened the 2008 season with a 47-7 win over Georgetown Saturday at the Yale Bowl.

Quarterbacks Ryan Fodor and Brook Hart combined for 361 yards and four touchdowns, the defense was led by nose tackle Joe Hathaway (2 sacks, 3 1/2 tackles for losses, one forced fumble) and Bobby Abare (seven tackles) and the special teams chipped in as Tom Mante not only kicked the first two field goals of his Yale career but had a 71-yard punt and average 52 yards on three punts.

On the injury front, the only major news was safety Larry Abare being knocked out of the game with a concussion. Expect a bit more resistance when Yale opens Ivy League play with a game at Cornell Saturday. Cornell won 21-20 over Bucknell on a blocked extra point by Graham Rihn. Nathan Ford passed for 207 yards and two touchdowns while Randy Barbour ranfor 114 yards and a score. Former Amity star Ricky Ballou had three tackles including a sack for the Big Red.

On Sunday the Yale JV team defeated Springfield's JV squad 54-0.

Former Ansonia High star Alex Thomas ran for 110 yards including a 54-yard TD, Marcus Wallace and Dan Walsh returned fumbles for TDs and Rodney Reynolds had a touchdown run and reception.
