The ECSU Vikings remain perfect in conference play with a 70-6 drudging of Lincoln
University of Pennsylvania Saturday afternoon at Avon Grove High School.
The 70 points represents the Vikings largest scoring output since a 74-12 win over
Hampton University in 1971, the same season ECSU captured its only CIAA Football Championship.
Curtis Rich threw for 211 yards, two touchdowns and rushed for another, a 10-yard
score to push the lead to 34-0 with 2:32 remaining in the first half. His passing
scores went for 41 and 53 yards to Dexter Manley and Bryan Fields, respectively.
Senior tailback Dennis Hamilton rushed for a career high 162 yards on 14 carries and
also collected his fourth rushing score of the season. His 37-yard touchdown, at the
12:14 mark of the opening quarter, represented the Vikings first score of the afternoon.
Defensively the Vikings surrendered a season low 123 yards of total offense to the
Lions. Jeff Lynn, Jr. had two interceptions for 39 yards and three pass breakups.
The Vikings (5-3, 5-0) will seek to secure their second appearance in the past three
seasons in the CIAA Championship when they host Saint Paul's College for Homecoming
2008 Saturday, October 25th at Roebuck Stadium. Tickets, $15, for the homecoming game
