UAlbany Football Falls To New Hampshire 24-10 For Sixth Straight Loss
The tough season continues for the University at Albany Football program as they fall to 0-7 in conference play after losing 24-10 to New Hampshire on Saturday.
A cold, blustery day in New Hampshire made it difficult for both offenses to move the football but the ground game and turnovers were the story. Senior kicker Ethan Stark got the Great Danes on the board in the first quarter with a 49-yard field goal, giving UAlbany a 3-0 lead. The 49- yard field goal is the second longest of the season (51-yards vs. Morgan State) for Stark and the 5th longest in program history.
New Hampshire took the lead six minutes later on a Trevor Knight 1-yard touchdown run, and added a field goal at the end of the half to take a 10-3 lead at the half.
After a couple three and outs for both teams, the back breaker for Albany was a 93-yard touchdown run by Carlos Washington Jr. with 3:11 left in the 3rd quarter gave the Wildcats a 17-3 lead. UAlbany did find the end zone on a 28-yard touchdown pass from Undercuffler to Mofor to make it 17-10.
But with a chance to drive down and tie the game, Undercuffler threw an interception for a touchdown for the final score of 24-10.
“We had opportunity after opportunity after opportunity to take the lead and get in the game. And we squandered every one of them." Said Head Coach Greg Gattuso "We just didn’t finish anything.”
The Great Danes will close out their season this Saturday, November 17th at home against Stony Brook. Kickoff is at 3:30pm.
