Wabash (3-0, 2-0 North Coast Athletic Conference) dominated winless Allegheny Saturday in every phase of the football game. The 65-0 score might have been the least impressive statistic. The Little Giants clearly wanted the satisfaction of thumping the Gators after last year’s 20-17 Gheny upset.
Dominating can be an overused adjective in sports but not so for this game. Wabash out-rushed the Gators 385-3. The difference in first downs was 19-2. Total offense was just as lopsided, 495-55. Allegheny (0-4, 0-3 NCAC) crossed the 50 just once against Wabash’s defense, and that was due to a penalty. The homecoming hosts were 1 of 15 on third down conversions.
Wabash scored on a blocked punt, an interception, a bad snap to the quarterback, on long runs, great catches, and long drives.
From the outset it was clear the Little Giants would play with a purpose.
Houston now moves up to third in the NCAC conference with 13 catches in two conference games.
Former Plymouth Rockie Brock Smith picked up a blocked punt and carried it for 26 yards for his first collegiate touchdown.
The Little Giants combined score for their 3 wins this season is 184 -13.
The Little Giants will stay on the road and travel to the College of Wooster (2-1, 2-0 NCAC) next Saturday
