Football Drops CC Opener

Franklin & Marshall held Muhlenberg to a field goal over the bulk of the final three quarters, throwing three touchdown passes to come from behind for a 24-10 win in the Centennial Conference opener for both teams.

The Mules (2-2), who started CC play 0-1 for the fourth year in a row, took a 7-3 lead on the second play of the second quarter when sophomore Eric Santagato rolled right and found senior tight end Stephen Montalto open in the back of the end zone for a 5-yard touchdown.

The Diplomats (2-2) answered right back with a touchdown drive of their own to go back on top, and the game looked like it might be a seesaw contest when Muhlenberg responded with a long drive. But two 15-yard penalties – a personal foul that forced the Mules to punt and kick catching interference on the punt return – helped swing the momentum of the game. F&M needed seven plays to score another touchdown and went into the locker room with a 17-7 lead.

Muhlenberg took the second-half kickoff and advanced to the F&M 4-yard line, converting three third-and-longs, but an interception halted the drive. The Mules moved inside the Diplomat 5-yard line again early in the fourth quarter, settling for a 21-yard field goal that cut the gap to 17-10.

Muhlenberg’s lone possession with a chance to tie began at its 19-yard line with 8:14 to play. Three plays netted only three yards, and F&M scored the clinching touchdown on its next possession.

Sophomore David Mazzola led the Mule defense with 10 tackles, and junior Tom Tarsitano, making his first career start at linebacker, added eight.
