Huskies Tame Wolves
October 8, 2011
The number 2 ranked Bloomsburg University Huskies defeated Cheyney University 45-10 in Redman Stadium. Almost 5,000 people were in attendance for Homecoming on the Bloomsburg campus.
After struggling the past two weeks rushing the ball, the Wolves found their ground game churning up 200 yards on the ground. Running backs Nahum Purdie, Cardoza Jacks, Marcus Jones and Justin Watkins combined for 213 yards with Purdie leading the way with 82 yards on seven carries.
Cheyney quarterbacks Malik Witten and Chris Anderson combines for 97 yards on 13-28. Prince Stewart led all receivers with four receptions for 27 yards.
Isaiah Fleming led the Wolves defense with 11 tackles and Javier Garcia added 10.
Bloomsburg scored on their first four possessions of the game to take a 24-0 lead. The Wolves Tyler Wilkinson capped a Cheyney 10 play drive with a 34 yard field goal. It was the Wolves first field goal of the season. Bloomsburg would answer with another TD before the end of the half and score again to start the third quarter.
The lone Cheyney touchdown was set up by an interception by Stan Banks; his third in the last two weeks. Banks returned the ball to the Cheyney 20 where Malik Whitten orchestrated an 8 play 80 yard drive that was capped off with a four yard rush by Justin Watkins. Bloomsburg would answer right back for the final margin of victory.
Cheyney will host West Chester next week in a homecoming contest in O’Shields-Stevenson Stadium.
