Revolving QBs Lift W&J over Thiel


Mackall, Dave, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


Washington & Jefferson broke open a competitive game with Thiel, unleashing a second-half scoring flurry Saturday night en route to a 56-16 rout of the Tomcats in the Presidents' Athletic Conference opener for both teams.

W&J, ranked No. 8 in NCAA Division III by D3Football.com, beat Thiel for the 27th time in the past 28 games in the 63rd meeting in the series.

Steven Shumaker, who had started the Presidents' first two games, completed 5 of 8 passes for 103 yards and one touchdown. He also scored a touchdown on a 10-yard run and finished with a team- leading 64 yards rushing.

Third-team quarterback Taylor Hockman's 39-yard touchdown run capped a 21-point fourth-quarter for W&J.

W&J outgained Thiel in total yards, 537-231, and produced 27 first downs to Thiel's 10.

All this after Washington & Jefferson had clung to its eight- point halftime lead.

"Thiel is going to win some football games," Sirianni said.

The Tomcats (1-2, 0-1) were coming off a 20-10 victory over Albion in their home-opener a week earlier.
