BC Maintains Edge At Half

November 28, 2009 - 12:06 pm

The Eagles are leading at the half in a road game for one of the first times all season as they take a 16-10 advantage to the locker room in College Park, Maryland. The 16 points are the most for BC in a half for a road game all season and matches the season-high for a game it had against Notre Dame. A pair of Steve Aponavicius field goals (36 and 23 yards) are the difference so far with the last coming as time expired in the half. Aponavicius is the only kicker in the FBS who is perfect this year (38/38 PAT, 12/12 field goals). Montel Harris is, as usual, leading the offensive charge as he already has 21 carries for 93 yards along with a 30-yard catch. Quarterback Dave Shinskie has had a decent half, going 8 for 14 for 160 yards. Maryland tied the score early in the second quarter with a 6-yard rush touchdown but the offense has been shut down by the Eagles defense since. Sophomore quarterback JaMarr Robinson was sacked twice in a row in the second quarter, by Damik Scafe and Brad Newman, respectively.
