Mike Clark has always been so willing to give me an interview, even after a loss. Hard to do, but he does talk about the Widener loss, players who have set milestones this year and the Misericordia game.

WILLIAMSPORT, PA -- Washington & Jefferson is no stranger to Lycoming College Football as the two teams have played four times before, each winning two NCAA Division III playoff games. Today, one team would walk off the field headed for another week of practice and continue down the road to a second round Division III playoff game.
With a defense ranked nationally and an offense that can strike at any moment, the Warrior hopes were dashed however, in this physical playoff battle. "You cannot blame it on the rain" said Ryan Swailes taking the blame for missing open receivers and completing only 14 of 40 and two interceptions. All day long it seemed the Lycoming offense had a short in the wiring and eventually blew the fuse. Add to that, the fact Washington & Jefferson upped the stakes a little as their defense played brilliantly all game long. Also, the Presidents offense was able to complete two long drives and hold on for the upset victory against Lycoming.

The Warriors (5-2 overall, 4-2 MAC) are coming off a 34-17 loss to 12th-ranked Widener. Senior Tyler Jenny completed 25 passes and threw for 281 yards in the game and junior Ryan Umpleby caught 14 passes for 203 yards and a touchdown.
Widener So QB Seth Klein entered game seven without an interception, and incredible feat. That streak is over as Lycoming's Jr DB Mike Gentile picked off a Klein pass at the goal line.
