DOYLESTOWN, Pa. – Senior Tyler Jenny (Glasgow, Pa./Glendale) completed 28-of-37 passing for career-highs of 376 yards and five touch
downs to lead the 20th-ranked Lycoming College football team, but 24th-ranked Delaware Valley used a school-record 611 total yards to post a 52-42 win at James Work Memorial Stadium on an overcast Saturday, Oct. 11.

Jenny’s favorite targets were junior Ryan Umpleby (Forest Hill, Md./Fallston), who caught eight passes for career-highs of 137 yards and two touchdowns, and  senior John Sibel (Yardley, Pa./Pennsbury) caught six passes for a career-high 95 yards and a score. Senior Cam Kriner (Montgomery, Pa./Montgomery Area) added a career-high six receptions for 65 yards, as the Warriors (5-1 overall, 4-1 MAC) rolled up a season-high 461 yards of total offense and Jenny became the seventh player in school history to toss five touchdowns in a game and his 376 yards were seventh-most in school history.

“He’s a competitor,” Lycoming’s seventh-year head coach Mike Clark said of Jenny. “He finds ways to keep plays alive with his feet. That kid loves football. He’s smart, he’s accurate. It’s only his sixth loss in the league since he became a starter. He is as good as we’ve had here in a long time.”

The Aggies (5-0 overall, 4-0 MAC) were just a touch better offensively, with Aaron Wilmer tossing for 380 yards and five touchdowns on 21-of-27 passing and Rasheed Bailey, who entered the week as the nation’s leading receiver, caught nine passes for 195 yards with a touchdown. The rushing game was just as good, with Chris Smallwood notching 25 carries for 180 yards and a score.

“We knew they were good,” Clark said. “We shouldn’t have allowed that score before the half. That is my responsibility to make sure that doesn’t happen. We knew we would have to score to win. We didn’t know it would have to be that much. We knew we had to disrupt Aaron and we didn’t do that today. He made some throws and they made some catches. Rasheed Bailey is very good and Aaron was outstanding today.”

After allowing just 213 yards through the first five games, the Warriors ran into an explosive Delaware Valley offense that totaled 305 yards in the first half. Aaron Wilmer finished the half 10-of-14 for 212 yards and three touchdowns in the half, leading the team back from a 28-14 deficit by helping the Aggies score three times in the final 5:42 of the half to take a 35-28 lead into the break.

The Warriors offense was just as up to the task early in the half, with Jenny going 15-for-18 for 208 yards and three touchdowns.

Lycoming was explosive in the first half, scoring on its first three drives to take a 21-7 lead with 2:17 left in the first quarter. Sibel took the opening kickoff to the 40-yard line, then caught three passes on the ensuing drive, the last for a 12-yard touchdown with 11:36 left in the opening quarter. After the Aggies answered with a 31-yard touchdown strike, Jenny found Talerico for a 17-yard touchdown and then after an Aggie punt, Jenny found Umpleby for a 40-yard score.

Chris Smallwood helped the Aggies close within seven with a 15-yard score with 28 seconds left in the first quarter, but Lycoming answered right back, embarking on a  12-play, 74-yard drive, with senior Nick Mongiello (East Windsor, N.J./Hightstown) plunging in from one-yard out to give Lycoming a 28-14 lead.

The Aggies responded with a three-minute drive, though, with Wilmer finding Danny Lopez for a four-yard score with 5:42 left. After Lycoming’s first of three punts in the game, Delaware Valley was able to score on another three-minute drive, with Wilmer scoring from three yards out before going in on a two-point conversion to tie the game at 28 with 1:05 left.

The Warriors then punted the ball away after their second and final three-and-out of the game and Wilmer, on the first play of the ensuing drive, found Ta’riq Thomas for a 58-yard score to take the lead into the break.

Delaware Valley got a 30-yard field goal to open the second half, but Lycoming responded by cutting the lead to three points, as senior Matt Cookson (Morrisville, Pa./Morrisville) caught a 20-yard strike from Jenny in the back corner of the end zone with 6:19 left in the third quarter.

That was as close as Lycoming could get, though, as the Aggies scored on their next two possessions to take a 52-35 lead before Umpleby caught a 15-yard scoring strike from Jenny with 7:40 left in the fourth quarter. The Aggies were able to eat 7:20 off the clock in their final drive before turning the ball over on downs with 13 seconds left at the Lycoming 14-yard line.

Junior Mike Gentile (Havertown, Pa./Haverford) led the Warrior defense with eight tackles and the group of sophomore Tim Christopher (Kennett Square, Pa./Unionville), junior Brian Campbell(Drums, Pa./Hazleton) and freshman Dalton Yentsch (Harrisburg, Pa./Lower Dauphin) each added seven. Junior John Ciurlino (Springfield, Pa./Springfield) posted five stops, two for a loss and a sack.

Chris Kitchen and Danny Wynne each led the Aggies with seven tackles, 0.5 for loss. Aric Boyes also had seven stops and a sack.

After a bye week, the Warriors get back on the field on Saturday, Oct. 25, when they host No. 14 Widener at 1:30 p.m. at David Person Field as part of homecoming weekend.
