Sophomores hook up for winning TD

UConn's Blue-White Scrimmage
Sophomore Blaise Driscoll (Avon) connected with classmate Teddy Baker (Longmeadow, Mass.) on a two-yard touchdown pass as time expired to lead the Blue team to a 16-14 win over the White in the annual Blue vs. White Spring Game at Rentschler Field on Saturday.
Lyle McCombs had 66 rushing yards in the game. Driscoll was two-for-three for 43 yards on the day, while senior Johnny McEntee was four-for-eight for 29 yards with one interception while playing for the Blue and two-for-eight for 22 yards with the White.

SCSU baseball splits pair
No. 5 Southern split a doubleheader with Stonehill on Saturday. Kevin Pettine notched the win in the opener 4-2 but the Owls dropped their third game of the season, 5-4 in the second game.
Hamden's Kyle Cummings homered in the first game.
For as amazing as Southern has been thus far, it is a half-game behind Franklin Pierce for the conference lead. FP is 14-3 while Southern is 13-3. New Haven is sixth in the conference.

New Haven baseball splits
The Chargers also split a twinbill on Saturday against Merrimack. New Haven lost the first game 1-0 but posted a 3-2 win in 11 innings in the second game.
New Haven moved to 18-12 overall and 7-7 in the Northeast-10 Conference.
