Yale JVs beat Army JVs

The Yale and Army teams will play in the Yale Bowl in 2014 as part of a 100th anniversary of the opening of the Yale Bowl.

The school's junior varsity teams squared off today at Clint Frank Field with Yale's six quarterbacks combined to throw for 360 yards and four touchdowns with Yale winning 35-28.

Freshman Cameron Sandquist, who had two TD catches in the varsity game against Coolumbia, had six catches for 170 yards and three touchdowns from three different quarterbacks. John Whitelaw (16 of 22, 212 yards and 2 touchdowns) hooked up with Sandquist from 18 yards out. Dez Duron (4 of 6 for 78 yards) threw a 41-yard TD pass to Sandquist with the freshman receiver making a nifty series of moves on sideline at about the 20 yard line. He somehow escaped the clutched of three Army defenders and ran out of his left shoe in the process. Then Sandquist hauled in a 35-yard score from Henry Furman for the winning score with 2:28 to play. Jackson Liguouri caught an 8-yard TD from Whitelaw while Whitelaw had a 1-yard scoring run.

John Runk (5 catches for 64 yards) and McConnell Smith (5-33) were other top receivers for the Bulldogs.

Defensively, Brian Leffler and Ryan Falbo had seven tackles each, Ben Ashcraft had six tackles and a fumble recovery, Chris Brady had five tackles and an interception and Scott Williams had five tackles. John Oppenheimer forced a fumble, Dylan Drake had a fumble recovery, Max Napolitano had a late interception while Matt Messer ended the game with a sack.

Army tipped two punts and blocked another and scored touchdowns each time but its aggressiveness going after Yale punter Alex Flanders was costly when a roughing the punter penalty extended Yale's drive late in the fourth quarter. Four plays later Furman found Sandquist for the winning score.

There were crunching hits by Brady and Leffler, the latter knocking the more effective of the two Army quarterbacks out of the game.
