New Haven football Week 3 notebook

FULL NELSON: Making his first career New Haven start, senior quarterback Ronnie Nelson passed for 152 yards and three touchdowns on 8-for-10 passing to lead UNH over Pace University 44-10, Saturday at Pace Field in Pleasantville, N.Y.
With starting quarterback Ryan Osiecki out for a week with a strained muscle in his back, Nelson dominated the Pace (0-3, 0-2 Northeast-10) defense.
Nelson, who came into the game in the second quarter last week, has passed for 302 yards and five touchdowns in the last two weeks.
The Chargers (3-0, 2-0 NE-10) have a back-up that’s better than most NE-10 team’s starters. #loaded.

NOT RUNNING WELL: The Chargers run defense held the Setters to just 22 rushing yards. Pace averaged 0.8 yards per carry. The Setters did manage to score a touchdown, but it was in the fourth quarter with the game out of reach. Last week at Saint Augustine’s University, New Haven only gave up 13 rushing yards.
BACK HOME: So after winning back-to-back games on the road, the Chargers return to DellaCamera Stadium to host Saint Anselm and Assumption the next two weeks. New Haven has not lost a home game since Nov. 6, 2010 when it lost to Saint Anselm 35-26. The Chargers play Saint Anselm this Saturday.
OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE GAME: Sr., WR Demetrius Washington-Ellison had 89 receiving yards and two touchdowns on three receptions. He caught a 55-yard pass, the longest of the game.
DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE GAME: The entire defense held Pace to just 22 rushing yards and only 10 points.
UP NEXT: Saturday vs. Saint Anselm, 1 p.m.
