Alvernia Golden Wolves kept the game tight in what appeared to be a blowout until the fourth quarter, when it started to unravel.
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.
Alvernia would score a touchdown in the fourth quarter, but it was too late as Ursinus defeated Alvernia 59-27.
