New Haven football notebook

NO RUNNING: For the third straight week the New Haven defense held their opponent to less than 50 yards on the ground. New Haven gave up a total of 22 rushing yards to Saint Anselm in a 45-0 victory Saturday. The Chargers had given up 13 and 22 rushing yards in the previous two games in wins over Saint Augustine’s University (N.C.) and Pace University. Opposing teams are only racking up an average of 19 rushing yards per game in the last three weeks. The Chargers (4-0, 3-0 Northeast-10) also only gave up 189 total yards to the Hawks (0-4, 0-3 NE-10).
WATCH: Extra Charge to see why the Chargers aren’t just long touchdown passes and high-scoring games anymore.

STILL ON THE SIDELINES: Starting senior quarterback Ryan Osiecki is still out with a strained muscle in his back. Back up senior quarterback Ronnie Nelson got the start and passed for 250 yards and four touchdowns in three quarters before the game got out of hand.
WELCOME TO THE SHOW: Hamden native and Hyde Leadership graduate Justen Wilson scored his first collegiate touchdown early in the fourth quarter. The freshman rumbled 31 yards for the score and finished with 61 rushing yards on eight carries. He averaged 7.6 yards a carry.

OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE GAME: Senior quarterback Ronnie Nelson with 250 passing yards and four passing touchdowns
DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE GAME: Junior safety/linebacker Herbens Antenor with six tackles and a fumble recovery.
