The Fordham University Football team (10-1, 6-0) were able to remain undefeated in Patriot League play with a 52-7 victory over Georgetown (2-8, 0-5) on a chilly Saturday afternoon at Jack Coffey Field.
With the win the 2014 Squad became the first team in history to go undefeated in League Play, it did not come without some grey hairs though as there were not only some injuries but also a very tough Georgetown team the team had to overcome.
Starting the play at Quarterback today was Mike Nebrich (Burke, Va.) who was looking great until around the 13:35 mark of the Second Quarter when he was injured. There is no update on what the injury was or how much time he will have to miss.
The game once again rested on the shoulders of Peter Maetzold (Friendswood, Tex.) who had guided this squad to two prior huge victories over Colgate and Bucknell. Once again Maetzold did a masterful job, getting a score at the 10:34 mark of the Second Quarter as he was able to connect with Wide Receiver Brian Wetzel (Dallas, Tex.) on a 34-yard play for the 17-0 lead at the time.
Maetzold and Wide Receiver Sam Ajala (DeSoto, Tex.) were able to connect for a huge play at the 6:53 mark of the Third Quarter for the 38-0 lead.
The 5,682 in attendance not only got to see the Senior Day ceremonies but also a bit of Fordham History in the day as Running Back Chase Edmonds (Harrisburg, Pa.) broke a record of 20 rushing Touchdowns, which was set by Kirwin Watson in 2003. So far Edmonds has 21 rushing TDs which tied for 5th in Patriot League Play.
Fordham will end out the regular season with a non-conference game against Army at West Point, NY, while awaiting their fate in the NCAA FCS Tournament.
