3 keys to Notre Dame football
Bunnell 38, Notre Dame 0 (Oct. 4)
Depleted roster: Notre Dame-Fairfield began the season with 31 players but just 18 were available against last Friday. Key absences through injury were captain Marcus Fulton and Trent Hudson, as well as Andrew Chimento and Tyler Owen. Each plays offense and defense.
Limited game plan: Boynton said his offense relied on the power running of Hakim Fleming with his top receivers unavailable. Bunnell keyed on him and reduced the yardage he could muster. "We made turnovers in key situations," he said.
Next game: Weston (2-2) is at Notre Dame-Fairfield (0-4) on Saturday at 1 p.m. in a SWC Patriot Division game.
