By the end of the first quarter, Jack Psenicska had thrown touchdown passes to Nick Schnaars, Kevin DePrince, and Zachary Throne, giving Ursinus a commanding 21-0 lead. All four field goals made by Dakota Wherrity were successful.

Before first-year coach Steve Azzanesi handed Alvernia Golden Wolves a much-needed pep talk in between quarters, it appeared that the team would have a difficult evening. In the end, that was precisely what the Golden Wolves required. Despite still losing the game, they prevailed in the second quarter, 20-10.


When Colin Payne handed the ball to Owen Morton for an 11-yard pass and a touch, Alvernia scored the game’s first touchdown. Five plays later, running back Joshua Bowman scored a touchdown on a 19-yard rush for Ursinus to get one back. The majority of touches were given to running back EJ Lee, who also scored a touchdown to bring the score to 31-13. Following that, Payne would pass to Joseph Perkins, bringing the score to 31-20.

Only one touchdown was scored in the third quarter. The lone touchdown was scored by Tony Holden, a running back for Ursinus. Ursinus increased its lead in the fourth quarter by winning the period 21-7 and the game 59-27 in total.

As Holan wrapped up the game with two more rushing touchdowns, Holden completed a touchdown throw to wide receiver Jack Psenicska.
