Offensive explosion

The day after the Yale varsity team managed just 92 yards of total offense in a loss to Penn, the junior varsity had significantly more success in a 37-29 loss to Naval Prep on Sunday.

Freshman quarterbacks Bryan Farris (8 of 17, 99 yards) and Dawson Halliday (11 of 22, 147 yards) each had touchdown passes while freshmen running backs Alex Thomas (12 carries, 67 yards) and Jake McCrary had scoring runs of 5 and 1 yards respectively. Thomas also had a 75-yard kickoff return.

Farris hooked up with freshman Lars Knudsen for a 31-yard scoring play while Halliday threw a 60-yard TD pass to freshman Chris Morris. Morris (five catches, 113 yards) and classmate McConnell Smith (5 catches, 71 yards) led Yale in receiving as the Bulldogs had 402 yards of total offense. By my math, Naval Prep finished with 355 yards of offense.

Freshmen Bedford Booth and Matt Battaglia tied for the team lead with nine tackles each and Booth also had an interception. Carter Deutsch, also a freshman, had seven tackles while classmates Nick Schneider and Cliff Foreman had six tackles each.
