UMass Cruises Past Stony Brook 44-17

Jonathan Hernandez scores one of his three touchdowns of the day

The Minutemen took the lead late in the first quarter and never looked back. The offense finished with 500 yards of total offense and the defense only gave up 229 yards to Stony Brook.

Hernandez shines in first career start

Jonathan Hernandez got his first career start due to Tony Nelson being hurt and took full advantage. He found the end zone three times and totaled 140 yards on the ground. Chris Zardas also rushed for two touchdowns on the day. This was the first time a UMass team has had five rushing touchdowns in a single game since the 2006 season against William & Mary.

Jeremy Horne had an excellent game with five catches for a total of 124 yards. On the first play of scrimmage, Kyle Havens found Horne for a 49-yard connection that led to the first rushing touchdown of the game. However, Havens did not have his best game as he went 12 for 24, 259 yards and two interceptions. Armando Cuko matched his career high with three field goals for the third game in a row.

Defense plays strong yet again

Despite giving up points in the first quarter for the first time this season, the defense played very well. They only allowed 229 yards of total offense and only 97 total yards in the second half. Shane Viveiros and Darren Thellen recorded interceptions, the first of the season for each. Anthony Monette had the only sack of the game and Perry McIntyre led the team with eight total tackles.

UMass has a bye next week and then they hit the road to face Delaware on October 10 at 6pm.
