Other Football: Colby wins, Bates ends long drought

From staff and news services

WATERVILLE — Spencer Gopaul scored on a pair of 1-yard runs Saturday, leading Colby to a 17-0 victory against Bowdoin in a C-B-B rivalry game to end their seasons.

Bates won the series (C-B-B stands for Colby, Bates, Bowdoin) by beating Colby and Bowdoin the past two weeks.

David Bendit's 27-yard field goal after 6:42 was the only scoring of the first three periods.

Colby (3-5) scored its first touchdown against the Polar Bears (1-7) after taking over on the Bowdoin 43, Gopaul going in with 6:50 to play.

Ryan Veillette then forced a fumble on a sack and Mark Vargas recovered at the Bowdoin 12. Gopaul scored with 5:06 left.

BATES 47, HAMILTON 33: Patrick George ran for 144 of Bates' 355 rushing yards as the Bobcats (5-3) ended a streak of 30 consecutive seasons at .500 or below by beating Hamilton (1-7) at Lewiston.

Bates' last winning season was a 6-2 record in 1981.

Trevor Smith ran for one touchdown for Bates and passed to Shawn Doherty for another. Doherty also had a rushing touchdown.

ANNA MARIA 44, HUSSON 42: Santino Simone passed for four touchdowns and rushed for two more for Anna Maria (2-8), which scored 22 points in the fourth quarter and 22 more in overtime to beat the Eagles (2-8) at Paxton, Mass.

Taquan Broadway and Josiah Hartley scored on short runs, and Reece Attard kicked a pair of field goals to open a 22-0 Husson lead entering the fourth period. But Simone connected with Dom Concepcion for three scoring passes to tie it.

Broadway ran for another TD in overtime, and Husson quarterback Kash Keezer threw a touchdown pass to Ben Foss. But Simone threw to Donald Graham for one TD and scored on rushes of 2 and 12 yards.
