PHILADELPHIA - The University of Pennsylvania sprint football team came away with its second win of the season Friday night, routing Princeton, 42-0, at Franklin Field.
Senior running back Scott Pickett had a monster of a game, carrying the ball just eight times but racking up 190 yards andthree touchdowns. Junior running back J.T. Hutchinson also was impressive, gaining 75 yards on seven totes with a touchdown.
Junior quarterback Mike Loguidice was just 1-of-7 passing, but he made his one completion count, throwing a 28-yard touchdown completion to Corey Higa in the first quarter.
"It was a full team effort, from the first to the last guy," said head coach Bill Wagner. "It was a big effort by our offense and our defense."
The Quakers (2-0)burst out for 21 points in the first quarter, thanks toa pair of Pickett touchdowns, including an 81-yarder, and Higa's end-zone grab. Pickett tacked on his third in the second quarter, breaking several tackleson an improbable end-around run from his own 42 yard-line.
Penn ran the ball much of the second half, eventually punching in two more touchdowns, firstwhen Hutchinson found paydirt from seven yards out and then when freshmanquarterback Mike D'Angelo took it four yards on a keeper.
Princeton (0-2) was led by an excellent passing performance from sophomore quarterback Alex Kandabarow, who completed 14-of-33 passes for 103 yards. Sophomore Lon Johnson was his leading target, catching 10 passes for 80 yards.
Next week Penn will be idle in a bye week before returning to action at Army on Oct. 14.
