ANN ARBOR, Mich. — After scoring the first 30 points of the game, the University of Saint Francis cruised to its third consecutive win with a 30-14 decision at Concordia University on Saturday afternoon.
USF senior quarterback Wesley Hunsucker threw for three touchdowns, special package QB Bradley Jarzab threw for another and senior running back Antoin Campbell posted his 12th career 100-yard rushing game with 104 yards on 17 carries in the Mid-States Football Association Mideast League game.
Jarzab connected with Zach Gegner for USF’s first TD with 8:12 to play in the first quarter. Ryan Nix added the PAT for a quick 7-0 USF lead. Nix added a 28-yard field goal at 9:27 in the second quarter for a 10-0 lead and Hunsucker connected with Cam Smith after some nifty scrambling from the Cardinals 3-yard line for the TD at 1:08 in the second quarter. Nix booted the extra point and USF led 17-0 at halftime.
Linebacker Steve Kiermaier set up USF’s third TD when he recovered a fumble at the Concordia 17. Despite a penalty and a Hunsucker fumble, Hunsucker made amends connecting with Matt Noll for a 32-yard TD at 12:51 in the third quarter. Just about two-and-a-half minutes later, USF scored again when Hunsucker hooked up with Seth Coate for a 7-yard TD at 10:16. Nix had his PAT attempt blocked, but the Cougars led comfortably 30-0.
Hunsucker finished 12-for-22 passing for 142 yards. Nick Ferrer completed 4-of-8 passes for 52 yards. Jarzab’s TD pass was the only pass he attempted. USF finishe 17-for-31 passing without an interception on a bone-chilling, blustery afternoon. USF (5-4, 3-1 MEL) improved to 4-0 against CU (3-6, 0-4 MEL).
Smith finished with four receptions for 42 yards to lead USF receiving. Akeim Kelsaw had three receptions for 25 yards.
