New Haven football notebook

BLOWOUT: Nobody expected the 36-7 New Haven rout of American International on Saturday. However, we also didn’t think Stonehill would give New Haven a tight game, either. The Chargers certainly have the upper hand going into Saturday’s Northeast-10 Championship game at DellaCamera at noon. The Chargers looked quicker, more athletic as the Yellow Jackets looked out of sync and undisciplined with nine penalties for 70 yards.
WATCH: Extra Charge to see how the Chargers don’t like all the trash the Yellow Jackets talked. 
HOME SWEET HOME: The win for New Haven puts them in the inaugural NE-10 title game against American International at Saturday at noon. The Chargers have looked strong, as expected, all season and look to close out the NE-10.
THE BIG DANCE: The Chargers are also fighting for home field advantage in the NCAA tournament. UNH is currently ranked No. 3 in Super Region One, which would give it home field against the No. 6 seed. After thrashing AIC, another win over the same team Saturday might not elevate UNH any higher than three. The Chargers are poised to earn home field, but the first round bye, which is awarded to the top two teams, might not be in UNH’s future.
OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE GAME: Ryan Osiecki, 259 passing yards, passing TD, 60 rushing yards, russing TD.
DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE GAME: Alex Dyer, sack, recovered blocked field goal.
