HAMILTON 16 WILLIAMS 13 - Hamilton College


Hamilton defensive back Chris Finley intercepted a Ziv Lalich pass at the Hamilton 35 with 1:20 remaining as Hamilton hung on for a 16-13 victory over Williams. It was only Williams' third loss in the last 30 games.

The game remained scoreless until 0:46 seconds remaining in the first half when Hamilton quarterback Dan DeBlois threw a four-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Ben Johnson. After a Dave Martucci interception, his third of the half, Andrew Scanzillo kicked a 28-yard field goal to give Hamilton a 10-0 lead as time expired in the first half.

Williams came out fired up in the second half as fullback Kris Kahn scored on a 43-yard scamper with 13:07 left in the third. Just :52 seconds later, however, DeBlois again hit Johnson, this time from 11 yards out, but a missed extra point resulted in a 16-7 Hamilton lead. Williams closed to within three on a Mike McAdam touchdown run with 11:15 left in the game, but also missed the point after, leaving a 16-13 Hamilton advantage.

Hamilton drove to the Williams 11 late in the fourth, but a holding penalty pushed the Continentals back to the 27. The Ephmen stopped Hamilton on a fourth and 23 and took over at their own 14 with 3:13 remaining.

Williams drove to the Hamilton 49 before Finley sealed the Hamilton victory with his interception. Both Hamilton and Williams are 4-2. DeBlois completed 27 of 45 passes for 249 yards and two touchdowns.
