Colonels determined to get the win at homecoming game

The football team will be playing its homecoming game against Widener University on Oct. 3, at 1 p.m. in Schmidt Stadium.

“It would be a big step for this football team to win this game,” said Ryan Dailey, the starting quarterback. “We just need to fight for all 60 minutes and stay strong, especially playing in front of all of our friends that are coming back for the game.

“It would mean a lot to get the ‘W’ on homecoming.”

The Colonels so far are undefeated at home, prevailing over Delaware Valley University in a close game. The team came back very late in the game making it a strong comeback win 12-7.

Muhlenberg, on the other hand, brought it to the Colonels. Muhlenberg defeated Wilkes 35-7 in a well-played game.

Wilkes also lost to Lycoming with a score of 24-48. The Colonels came out strong, but Lycoming slowly got the ball moving. Lycoming scored 21 points in the fourth quarter, which raised the score to 48 points.

The football team has continued to show substantial passing yards throughout their games. The players make up a strong team that can potentially find a spot in the end zone on Saturday at home.

Widener University has had a similar beginning to their season. After its first three games, the team stands at the same record as Wilkes, which is 1-2.
