No. 11 Football completes undefeated NJAC season with 38-7 win over William Paterson

SALISBURY, Md. – The 11th-ranked Salisbury University football team cruised to a 38-7 win over the William Paterson Pioneers in the regular-season finale to finish the New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) slate with a 6-0 record and will enter next week's NCAA Championship Tournament with a 9-1 overall record.

BOX SCORE

HOW IT HAPPENED

First Quarter

  • Salisbury methodically moved the ball down the field on its opening possession of the game. The 10-play drive was capped off when Joey Bildstein found a lane on a dive play and was untouched into the endzone from 25-yards out.
  • After William Paterson turned the ball over on downs on its opening possession, Salisbury marched down the field again. Shamar Gray ended the eight-play drive with a 12-yard touchdown to put Salisbury up, 14-0, at the end of the quarter.

Second Quarter

  • The teams traded punts before Salisbury got the ball moving again midway through the quarter. Jack Lanham found Gray on the seam for a 38-yard pass before Lanham punched the ball into the endzone on a sneak from a yard out to give Salisbury the 21-0 before halftime.

Third Quarter

  • Salisbury extended its lead to 24-0 with just over six minutes left in the third when Bert Schrecongost blasted a 44-yard field goal.
  • Gray notched his second touchdown of the game on Salisbury's ensuing drive on a five-yard pitch a play after a 23-yard reception from Chad Gleason.

Fourth Quarter

  • The Sea Gulls made it 38 unanswered points when Gleason tip-toed down the sidelines for a 15-yard touchdown and pushed the lead to 38-0.
  • William Paterson wouldn't down quietly as the Pioneers took a shot to the endzone on a fourth-down play and Spencer Lee found Matt Clarke on a 38-yard post play for a touchdown and gave the game's final score margin, 38-7.
