GETTYSBURG, Pa. – After a tightly contested first half, Gettysburg outscored McDaniel 21-0 in the second half to secure a 35-3 Centennial Conference (CC) victory on Saturday.

Joe Rollins (Temple Hills, Md./Surrattsville) led the Green Terror (0-5, 0-4 CC) with his second straight 100-yard rushing game, finishing with 138 yards on the ground. He also added 28 yards receiving. As  a team, McDaniel finished with 198 yards rushing – the first time this season the Bullets (5-0, 4-0 CC) allowed more than 100 yards rushing in a game.

Kody Smith paced the hosts with 108 yards passing and 48 yards rushing. Ted Delia added 68 yards rushing and three scores.

Gettysburg took advantage of a Hugo Nolasco interception at midfield to start its second possession with a short field at the McDaniel 27. After an 11-yard pass play, Delia did the rest of the work, including capping the five-play march with a four-yard run with 9:17 on the first-quarter clock.

Nick Valori (Treasure Island, Fla./Washington Twp. [N.J.]) hit Sean Montgomery (Bethesda, Md./Walter Johnson) for a 46-yard gain on first-and-20 and Rollins broke off a 15-yard scamper to help move the ball to the Gettysburg 18, where the drive stalled.

Bill Castor (Morrisville, Pa./Conwell-Egan Catholic) converted the 37-yard field goal attempt to make it 7-3 with 5:33 showing.

After a ruling on the field of interception in the end zone, Smith capped a 10-play, 80-yard drive with a 36-yard run to stretch the lead to 14-3 with 3:18 to play in the second quarter.

A 10-yard Eddie Hutchins run capped a 6-play, 60-yard drive on the Bullets' first possession of  the second half to stretch the lead to 21-3 with 11:08 remaining.

A 16-yard Delia run stretched the lead to 28-3 with 3:03 to play in the third after taking over at the McDaniel 35 five plays and 1:14 earlier.

The Bullets took advantage of a muffed punt, scoring two plays into the fourth quarter after taking over at the McDaniel 11. Delia rushed for 10 yards then capped it with a one-yard off-tackle run 23 seconds into the final period.

Matt Emerson (Moorestown, N.J./Moorestown) added 134 all-purpose yards, including 113 on kickoff returns. Valori finished 10-for-20 for 117 yards.

Aaron Chester (Chesterfield, Va./Cosby) led the defense with eight tackles while Mike Cousar (Easton, Pa./Easton Area) added seven tackles, including a sack, and a forced fumble.

The Green Terror has next Saturday off before returning to action at Franklin & Marshall on Saturday, Oct. 13. Game time is 1 p.m.
