Unbeaten Dartmouth rolls to 42-0 win over Sacred Heart
HANOVER, N.H. (AP) — Jared Gerbino ran for two first-quarter touchdowns — both from a yard out — and had two TD tosses in three pass attempts to lead Dartmouth to a 42-0 victory over Sacred Heart in the Big Green's final nonconference game of the season on Saturday.
Dartmouth (5-0) opened the season with five straight wins for a second straight season. The Big Green have won 13 straight against teams from outside the Ivy League.
Dartmouth scored touchdowns on its first six possessions. Gerbino threw a 27-yard scoring strike to Robbie Mangas, and his TD runs capped six- and seven-play drives that made it 21-0 by quarter's end. Derek Kyler threw a 17-yard score to Hunter Hagdorn and Gerbino hit Connor Rempel from 5 yards out in the second quarter for a 35-0 halftime lead.
Thirteen different backs carried the ball for Dartmouth, which piled up 277 yards on the ground.
The Pioneers (3-3) gained just 171 yards of offense.
