Former Giants help Wabash in win


 WEEK of OCT. 1723


 Leshawn Johnson  caught one pass for a 16 yard gain to help Walsh (1-7)   defeat Malone 24-21 and win for the first time this season.

Dallas Pitts  and Tim Fields each had one solo tackle for Wabash (6-1, 5-1) in a 34-24 win against Wooster.

Malik Limehouse  had one solo tackle and assisted on another for Anderson (1-6, 1-4) in a 51-7 loss to Mount St. Joseph.

Justin Brandon  had two solo tackles for Buffalo (1-6, 0-3) in a 44-7 loss to Northern Illinois.

Demarco Henry  returned a kickoff six yards for DePauw (5-2, 4-2) in a 37-15 loss to Ohio Wesleyan.

Rose-Hulman upset 14th  ranked Franklin 23-22 to put itself in a good position to represent the Heartland Conference in the D-III playoffs. Four teams (Franklin, Rose-Hulman, Bluffton, and Mount St. Joseph) have one loss. Rose-Hulman needs to defeat Bluffton , and Franklin needs to win against Mount St. Joseph in games this Saturday for the Engineers to go, because Rose-Hulman wins the tie-breaker against Franklin due to their win  against the Grizzlies. A Mount St. Joseph win would give them the tie breaker since they defeated Rose-Hulman. If Franklin wins and Rose-Hulman loses, Franklin would get the nod because they defeated Bluffton. This assumes teams win their remaining games against lower echelon teams. Franklin’s  Nathan Adams had six solo tackles (including a nine yard sack), two assists, and one quarterback hurry in the loss.  Darius Dixon started on the offensive line at right tackle for the Grizzlies, and teammate  John Ward had one solo tackle.

Grand Valley State (8-0, 7-0) remained undefeated with a 35-17 defeat of Hillsdale.  Jailyn Harden had two solo tackles, assisted on one tackle, and broke up one pass for the winners.

Malcolm Fogel  played for Indianapolis (3-5, 2-3) in a 38-7 win against Lincoln.

Chris Evans  carried the ball once for 16 yards for Michigan (7-0, 4-0) in a 41-8 win against Illinois, before being evaluated for a concussion.

St. Francis (7-1, 4-1) defeated Robert Morris (IL) 28-21. As usual, four former Giants contributed to the win. Starting wide receiver  Montay McDowell caught two passes for 64 yards, with a long of 39.  Sean Boswell caught three passes for 44 yards, including  a 30 yard touchdown reception, and carried the ball once for a loss of three yards. Starting cornerback  Na’ Shawn Lewis had two solo tackles and broke up one pass, and  Carlin Coleman assisted on a tackle.

Tre’ Tunstill  again led Thomas More (7-1) in tackles with 11, nine of them solos and two for losses, and intercepted a pass that he returned 15 yards in a 45-14 defeat of St. Vincent.

Joseph Domogalik  assisted on one tackle for Trine (5-2) in a 31-7 loss to Hope.


Franklin (13-3-0, 6-1-0) defeated Transylvania 1-0 and Earlham 4-0.  Taylor McDaniel took three shots, two on goal, against Transylvania and assisted on the Grizzlies first goal and took three shots against Earlham.
