The cross country team continues to prepare for the ACAA Championships which will be held next weekend at SUNY Delhi. The women's team is the defending champion while the men's team was runner-up last season.
Alfred State led 14-13 early in the 2nd quarter but two-time defending ECFC champion Husson scored 43 unanswered points to down the Pioneers 56-14. Husson improves to 3-0 in ECFC play and 4-2 overall.
Husson scored two quick touchdowns before Alfred State responded with a 69-yard drive capped off by a six-yard touchdown pass from Dashown Wilson (Bronx/DeWitt Clinton) to Jalen Long(Rochester/Bishop Kearney) to make it 13-7. The Pioneer defense came up with a goal line stand and then forced a fumble to set up a 80-yard drive that once again finished with a connection between Wilson and Long. The seven-yard pass play tied it up and the extra point by Ryan Shipherd (Randolph) gave Alfred State the lead.
Husson returned the ensuing kickoff for a score and never looked back as they racked up 739 yards of offense and forced five turnovers.
Long recorded his 5th 100-yard receiving game of the season. He caught nine passes for 169 yards and two scores. Darrius Nichols (Brooklyn/South Shore) caught five passes for 115 yards and Kiegan Brown (Cortland) caught three passes for 64 yards. Wilson finished with 238 yards passing.
