It  has been a great last two weeks for the Huskies football team. The Huskies went 2-0 in the past weeks. With a big win over 20th ranked Shepherd. And most recently a win over Millersville this past Saturday. 

The win over Shepherd was the biggest win in the Frank Sheptock era. Also, his first win against a ranked opponent. The Huskies stood tall against Shepherd’s explosive offense winning 14-10. Junior Kaleb Monaco led the Huskies with 78 rushing yards on 19 attempts coming with a long run of 17.

 Junior Ben Ries kept the offense balanced as he finished the day 14 for 26 with 186 yards passing. Junior Owen Anderson led the Huskies with 79 receiving yards coming with a long catch of 62 yards. The Huskies got touchdowns from Freshman Sean Hunt and the game winning touchdown from Sophomore Ty Pringle on a 28 yard run. The Rams drove down to the Huskies 27 yard line with 5:07 to play. Junior Devin Fleming and Junior Hakeem Bacon  came up big as they broke up a pass in the endzone to force the Rams to turn over on downs. When the Huskies got back on offense they sealed the deal. 

Saturday the Huskies traveled to Millersville and came out victorious once again. The Huskies defeated the Marauders 34-31. The Huskies held the Marauders to just seven second half points. Reis finished the contest going 15 for 24 passing with 169 yards. Junior Nas Jones finished with 5 catches for 86 yards Sophomore Jerry Griffin- Bachelor  fished with 46 yards on four catches. Monaco had another outstanding outing finishing with 90 yards on the ground to go along with two touchdowns. Reis added a 3 yard touchdown run.

On defense Sophomore Ryan D’Ambra led the Huskies with eight tackles, including six solo. Redshirt Freshman Brady Thompson finished with seven tackles and one pass breakup. 

With the two straight wins the Huskies improved their record to 3-7 overall and 2-5 in the PSAC East. They will look to stay hot as they host IUP Saturday at 12PM. I
