Hornets sting Bison in season opener

WASHINGTON – Gallaudet University opened its 2016 football season with a
43-6 loss to Shenandoah University here Saturday night before 1,115 under
the lights at Hotchkiss Field.

Shenandoah (1-0) compiled 440 yards of total offense with 246 yards coming
on the ground while Gallaudet (0-1) racked up 146 yards of total offense
(112 rushing yards).

The Bison defense caused a turnover on Shenadoah’s first possession when
senior linebacker Sean Fenton (Chicago, Ill.) intercepted Hayden
Bauserman’s pass and returned it 13 yards at the 13:42 mark in the first
quarter.

Gallaudet’s opening drive of the season was a quick three and out as the
Bison were forced to punt.

Bauserman (17-for-29, 194 yards) came back the following drive and threw
the first of four touchdown passes as tailback Cedrick Delaney scored on a
28-yard pass.

Delaney finished the game with 111 rushing yards on 10 carries and one
touchdown to go with his 22 receiving yards on three receptions and one
score.

Gallaudet surrendered a safety on a botched punt snap in the end zone
before Bauserman threw two more touchdown passes in the second quarter.
Shenandoah took a 22-0 lead into the locker room.

The Bison received the opening kickoff in the third quarter but turned it
over on the return to the Hornets. On the next play, Delaney rumbled 33
yards into the end zone. Costly mistakes by the Bison in the third quarter
forced the defense to remain on the field for an extended amount of time
as SU scored three times.

sophomore quarterback Antoine McKinney (Racine, Wis.) found wide receiver
Dylan Mento (Hammonton, N.J.) in the back right corner of the end zone for
the touchdown. GU missed the extra-point attempt.

BISON TRACKS
Senior defensive back Carneilus Smith (Chesapeake, Va.) led the Bison with
six tackles

Freshman quarterback Timel Benton (Columbia, S.C.) carried the ball 17
times and averaged 5.1 yards per carry

Senior defensive end Shawn Benavente (Fremont, Calif.) registered his
first sack of the season

Shenandoah leads the all-time series 5-1

Gallaudet welcomes Earlham College (0-1) to Hotchkiss Field on Saturday,

DeafDigest Sports editor’s comments on the Gallaudet football game

DeafDigest Sports editor watched the Gallaudet-Shenandoah game
last night. While the opening season defeat is always a
disappointment, there were encouraging signs. If one takes
a look at the Gallaudet two-deep offensive and defensive
depth chart, then all of the offensive starters were either
freshmen or sophomores! And of the defensive starters,
only five were either juniors or seniors. It takes time to
build a chemistry between new players and veterans.

Rookie quarterback Timel Benton was quick on his feet,
able to find holes when running his own plays. And
wide receiver Dylan Mento was able to get open for
an end zone pass that produced Gallaudet’s sole
touchdown. Players on both sides of the ball were
fighting right to the end of the game; this always
looks good.

And besides, Shenandoah was pretty much an experienced
team, led by a 6’3, 225 lb quarterback, who was dificult
to bring down and had a quick release when he found
open receivers, or was able to pitch the ball out
to open running backs.

It takes time and patience to get all pieces together!
