Hernandez Leads UMass Past Rival UNH

Hernandez scores the game-winning touchdown against UNH

The Minutement scored a huge win this past Saturday. They defeated #4 ranked UNH on a late interception that capped the 23-17 victory for UMass. Both sides of the ball played very well including running back, Jonathan Hernandez, who also was named the Bill Knight MVP which is given to the best player in the game.

Defense Comes Up Big

Although the defense gave up over 350 yards of total offense, they made the plays when it mattered. They only allowed UNH 72 yards on the ground and forced two interceptions. Eric Dickson led the Minutemen with 18 tackles while Anthony Monette had two tackles for a loss and a sack.

Michael Hanson finished with six tackles and a key interception in the second half. The biggest defensive play came with three seconds to play in the game and the Wildcats were at the UMass 13 yard-line. Kumar Davis picked off a R.J. Toman pass in the end zone to end the game and clinch the upset.

Hernandez carries the Offense

Jonathan Hernandez finished with 166 yards rushing, 23 receiving and one touchdown. His only score came late in the fourth quarter which gave the Minutemen a 20-17 lead. Kyle Havens finished with 207 yards through the air and his only touchdown pass went to Julian Talley. Talley finished with two catches for 23 yards. Victor Cruz led the receivers with six catches and 83 yards. Armando Cuko tallied three field goals, two of which came in the fourth quarter to add insurance to the UMass lead.

UMass travel to #1 Richmond where they will play the defending National Champion next Saturday.
