This time there was no relieved exhale with the game apparently in hand.
That’s because there was scarcely a labored breath. And the game was never not in hand.
A week after taking their foot off the gas in a come-from-ahead loss to Robert Morris, the Saint Francis Cougars dropped the hammer and kept dropping it Saturday afternoon, throttling overmatched Concordia 54-0 at Bishop John M. D’Arcy Stadium.
Running backs Aaron Harris and Jalen Campbell combined for 167 yards and four touchdowns, David Yoder threw for 260 yards and two touchdowns to Cam Smith, and the Cougars defense limited Concordia top 20 yards rushing and 190 total yards as Saint Francis rolled.
The Cougars (6-2, 3-1 MSFA MEL) scored 24 points in the second quarter to take a 31-0 lead into halftime, and when Devon Rush returned an interception 20 yards for another score on the second play of the second half, the issue was effectively decided.
