Fordham 3, Yale 0 at halftime

An offensive shootout this has not been.

We just went to half with Fordham holding a 3-0 lead and also having the edge in total yards 120-107.

The difference is a 46-yard field goal by Fordham's Patrick Murray with 5:12 left in the first quarter.

The Bulldogs offense playing without four injured starters, were not able to take advantage of a Geoff Dunham interception or a fumble recovery late in the half (I couldn't tell from where I was sitting but Jordan Haynes was at the bottom of the pile). The turnover followed by a 15-yard penalty on Fordham's David Moore gave Yale a first down at the Fordham 23.

Yale went for it all but Brook Hart's first-down pass intended for Gio Christodoulou was out of the end zone. On second down Hart found Forney but despite a valiant attempt by the senior receiver, it was ruled that Forney was out of bounds. After a sack on third down, a 40-yard field goal attempt became a 48 yarder. As he was on a 50-yard effort a few minutes earlier, Philippe Panico's field goal attempt was not close.

Yale, playing without its top two tailbacks and two starting offensive linemen, have managed 36 yards on 19 carries and 11 of those came on a scramble by Hart.

You must have been sitting in the right place on that fumble recovery. It Was indeed Jordan Haynes on the bottom of the pile. I only know because Im his mom. Thank you for the recognition but I think Jordan would tell you that every game is a team effort so Congrats to all the Bulldogs
