56 The Boston Sunday Globe October 2, 1983 3S.G.G30 t7L3AILB. outh' is mo match for Holy Cross' Bartm By Ernie Roberts Special to The Globe HANOVER, N.H. - The Ivy League presidents have been encouraging the formation of 'the Colonial League as a compatible conference for future inter league scheduling. But undefeated Holy Cross might have destroyed that "compatible" image by dismantling Dartmouth, 41-14, yesterday before Big Green prexy Dave McLaughlin and 10,752 other spectators. Junior quarterback Peter Muldoon completed 10 of 14 passes for 153 yards and one touchdown, and carried for another 59 yards and the game-opening score. His chief collaborator, Gill Fenerty, caught four of Muldoon's aerials for 67 yards and ran for 120 more, including touchdown jaunts of 5 and 43 yards. "Those are two gifted backs," said HC coach Rick Carter. "We are very blessed to have those guys in the lineup." The Crusaders did not dominate Dartmouth as much as they did UNH a week earlier, but they clearly were in control from the outset. The Purple defensive starters finally allowed their second TD of the season (on Jack Daly's 13-yard reception in the third quarter), but they were extremely stubborn before the score mounted. For example, in the second period, the Green held the ball for 18 consecutive plays (aided by a roughing-the-punter penalty) but could move only from its 13 to the HC 30. There the drive ended when Rick Weissman, a stalwart all day. was stacked up on a fourth-and-1 plunge up the middle. "That play, and when we let Fenerty get outside on fourth-and-2 (for his 43-yard score In the third period), made a difference in the score," said Dartmouth coach Joe Yukica. "But believe me, this is a real good Holy Cross team. That Muldoon makes great plays." "Holy Cross Is a lot better than Army (which beat Dartmouth, 13-12, last week)," added Green fullback Rich Lena. "They're a lot bigger on defense." The Crusaders did not have to punt until the third quarter. They led, 24;0, at halftime on Muldoon's 1-yard keeper (after a 47-yard, five-play drive), Tony Melink's 20-yard field goal, a 5-yard sweep by Fenerty and a pretty 9-yard running pass from Muldoon to Bill Cowley on a crossing pattern. But even after Fenerty's 43-yard sweep around left end at the start of the third quarter, on which the LSU transfer outran the Green secondary, Dartmouth stayed competitive. Da-, ly's 1 1-yard catch on a pass from Frank Polsin-ello capped an 84-yard drive. And tailback Lorenzo Chambers finished off an 83-yard march with a 9-yard gallop up the middle. Next, Holy Cross meets undefeated Colgate in an important Division 1-AA game at Worcester. "I guess you can call it a pivotal game. I think there were less than 20 undefeated teams remaining before (yesterday's) schedule," said Carter. "But if we win, we won't be world champs. And If we lose, our season won't be ended."

OTHIR EAST GLOBE PHOTO BY WENDY MAEDA By Joe Concannon Globe Staff Harvard defensive back Mike Dixon had been burned enough. "The first touchdown was mine," Dixon said. "1 got sucked up on the run." Then The Interception. "We were in man-to-man. I played 12 yards off to make It look like a zone. We blitzed. He threw it behind him." So Dixon assertively stepped in front of Army's Mark Triplett in the early moments of the fourth quarter yesterday before 15,000 In Harvard Stadium, picked off Bill Turner's pass and ran 80 yards up the sidelines for the touchdown that may have turned a season around and also said something about the Ivy League's ability to persevere. When Jim Villanueva kicked the extra point. Harvard had tied Army, 21-21, and when Villanueva kicked a 26-yard field goal later in the quarter, the Crimson left The Stadium on a ca-liginous afternoon with a 24-21 victory. Following its lackluster performance in a 21-7 defeat to UMass a week ago, this was an afternoon of resurrection. What should be pointed out, however, isi what happened to the Cadets when quarterback Rob Healy was knocked out with a shoulder In-Jury after Chris Myers ran him out of bounds to close out a 21 -yard run for a first down at the Army 45. Army was on top, 21-14, and Healy sat on the bench, for the rest of the game, his shoulder taped and his season In Jeopardy. He didn't start because of a concussion suf fered a week ago in a 13-12 victory over Dartmouth. He came in, brought Army back from a 14-0 deficit, completed 11 of 16 passes for Penn St. drubs Rutgers, 36-25 From Wire Services D.J. Dozier gained 196 yards and scored two touchdowns yesterday, while Nick Gancitano kicked three field goals to give Penn State a come-from-behind 36-25 victory over Rutgers in East Rutherford, N.J. Dozier scored on a 1-yard run in the first quarter and a game-breaking, 50 yard burst in the fourth period as Penn State rallied from a brief 16-14 deficit in the first half to take their second straight win after three losses. Gancitano kicked field goals of 36, 42 and 19 yards. Rutgers quarterback Rusty Hochberg kept the Scarlet Knights in the game by completing 19 of 34 passes for a school-record 367 yards but left the game after completing his second touchdown pass to Andrew Baker 'early in the fourth quarter. Hochberg injured his left knee after throwing the 76-yard scoring pass to Baker that drew Rutgers (2-2) to within 29-25. On the next series, the Nittany Lions started an 89-yard drive after the kickoff, punctuated by Dozier's 50-yard burst around left end. Dozier's first touchdown was followed by a 37-yard Rutgers' field goal by Tom Angstadt but Penn State responded with a 6-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Penn St., 36-25 Doug Strang to split end Kevin Baugh to give Penn State a 14-3 lead. On the final play of the first quarter, Hochberg ran 14 yards on a bootleg around right end to bring Rutgers to within 14-9. A pass attempt for a two-point conversion failed, but 90 seconds into the second period, Hochberg connected with Baker on a 50-yard TD pass as Baker outran safety Harry Hamilton and cornerback Mike Zordich to give Rutgers a 16-14 edge. WILLIAM & MARY 26, YALE 14 Reserve quarterback David Murphy scored the go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter as William & Mary defeated winless Yale, 26-14, at Norfolk, Va. Murphy's 10-yard touchdown run with 4:02 remaining in the third quarter put Williams & Mary (2-2) ahead for good, 17-14, in the first meeting ever between the two teams. On Yale's first play after the ensuing kickoff, William & Mary defensive tackle Steve Zeuli recovered a fumble by Paul Andrie on the Bulldogs' 26. CINCINNATI 48, CORNELL 20 Troy Bodine passed for a pair of touchdowns and ran for two more to pace the University of Cincinnati to a 48-20 romp over winless Cornell in Cincinnati. m . ' -, . 183yards and one touchdown and" scrambled" enough to keep the Injury-depleted Crimson defense off guard. When he left, Army's offense had all the punch of a Civil War musket. "We were moving the ball," said Army coach Jim Young of the way things turned aroiirid when Dixon returned the Interception for" 'a touchdown. "It certainly changed the tempo of the game. From our dominating to their taking over. It was a pass we'd hit many times before. We went from 0-14 to 21-14 ..." This was an entertaining game, a more lively expression of the Ivy game than anyone detected on Black Saturday a week before. Missing five defensive starters and without anythlng re-sembling a passing game, the Crimson simply ran the ball down the throats of the Cadets. "We just wanted to get the ball into different backs' hands," said quarterback Chuck Colombo. "We knew our line could handle them 'tip front." So the Crimson moved 79 yards In 13 plays on its opening drive for a 6-0 lead and Mark Vignali carried 11 times in that drive on an afternoon when he ran a Harvard record 39 times Tor 172 yards. The Crimson's Steve Ernst busted off left tackle, cut back against the flow and ran 8 yards for a 12-0 lead 2:41 Into the second quatr-ter. Ernst caught Colombo's toss for two and Jt was .14-0. "'''"W" Enter Healy. He completed two passes to Scott Spellman for 48 yards and to Rob Dicker3 son for 26. Harvard 14, Army 7. On Its first possession in the third quarter, Atkins threw the option pkss to Jarvis Hollingsworth for a 29 yard gain to the 3, Atkins ran it in on the next play. Craig Stopa's extra point tied the game. After the Crimson (2-1) failed to follow up a marvelous Vignali scamper for 31 yards. Army went to work again. The big play was Atkins 31 -yard sweep around HarvarcTs eight-man front to the 2. Atkins ran through a gaping hole and it was 21-14. Then Healy went down and, poof, that was pretty much it for the 1-3 Cadets.

That's because nothing did. ' With 9:38 left in yesterday's game, Princeton was nursing a 17-16 edge over host Brown and had the ball on the Bruins' 44. Graham, the Tigers' junior split end, was dispatched on a kamikaze mission - a deep sideline pattern into the teeth of the Brown secondary. Graham did as instructed, cutting to the left side at the Brown 15 as Bruin defensive backs Greg Hausler and Bob Chiaradio converged on him. Princeton quarterback Doug Butler threw what he called "a duck," and Graham figured he was about to become duck soup. He reached up, snared the ball and prepared to notify his next of kin. "I was waiting to get pounded," said Graham. There was indeed a jarring collision, but much to his relief, Graham was only an innocent bystander. Chiaradio and Hausler smacked into one another as Graham somehow skipped gratefully into the clear. "I thought to myself, 'Wow, all of a sudden I'm alone,' " he said. A few steps later, he was in the Brown end zone, completing the touchdown play that propelled Princeton (2-1) to a 27-16 Ivy League victory. This was the fitting punctuation to a dazzling afternoon for Princeton's offense. w Butler, a 6-foot, 174-pound sophomore who did not step into the huddle until the fourth quarter of Princeton's 21-3, season-opening loss to Dartmouth, staged another aerial spectacular. He hit on 25 of 37 passes for 362 yards and three touchdowns, a performance that actually was something of a comedown. In his starting debut last week, he torpedoed Bucknell with 29 completions in 55 attempts for 417 yards and five TDs. Not bad for a beginner. "I'm not going to rush him," said Princeton coach Frank Navarro. "I'm not going to compare him, and I'm not going to comment too much on him. I just want him to play." While Navarro wouldn't put any pressure on his quarterback, Brown's defense couldn't. "The line was unbelievable," said Butler. "I had Princeton, 27-16 at Providence Princeton (2-1) 3 7 7 10- 27 Brown (1-2) 7 3 6 0- 16 P - Mike Miskovsky 46 FG B Sieve Heflernan 2 run (Chris In-gerslev kick) P Kevin Guthrie 8 pass from Doug Butler (Miskovsky kick) B - Ingerslev 36 FG P Derek Graham 1 1 pass from Butler (Miskovsky kick) B Joe Potter 3 run (kick (ailed) P Graham 44 pass from Butler (Mi-kovsky kick) P - Miskovsky 26 FG Attendance - 10,009 PRINCETON BROWN First downs 23 22 Rushing yards 124 228 Passing yards 362 181 Return yards 97 13 25-37-1 12-35-4 Punts .. 6-33.0 7-32.1 Fumbles-lost 3-1 4-1 Penalties-yards 8-76 6-49 INDIVIDUAL LEADERS Rushing All.

And so he spent the afternoon playing catch with his two superb receivers, Graham (lQ-re-ceptions. 201 yards, 2 TDs) and flanker Kevin Guthrie (8-112-1). : On Princeton's three touchdown drives which were sandwiched between field goals joj 46 and 26 yards by Mike Miskovsky - the Tigers' three-ring passing attack was perfect. On the first, which pulled Princeton into a shortlived 10-7 second-quarter lead, Butler went 5 for 5 for 64 yards. The finale was an 8-yaf d "TO pass to Guthrie, who has accumulated a sea-1 son's worth of receptions (24) in the past two weeks. ' On their opening possession of the third quarter, the Tigers dissolved a 10-10 tie with a; drive highlighted by four Butler passes and four Butler completions. All told, the connections covered 52 yards, the last 1 1 on Graham's flrsi TD catch. Stubborn Brown kept bouncing back - on 2-yard TD run by Steve Heffernan, a 36-yan field goal by Chris Ingerslev and a 3-yard TD; lunge by razzle-dazzle option quarterback Joa Potter. J But ultimately, the Bruins (1-2) couldn't cop wih Princeton's long-distance offense. , J "Butler is going to be a premier quarterback for the next three years," said Brown coach John Anderson. "And the two wide receiver are exceptional players." That added up to three strikes against Brown's defense. t
