Cardinals Drop Ball Versus Gallaudet

Gallaudet QB Todd Bonheyo accounts for 4 TDs in win over CU

Gallaudet University didn't have far to travel, and it showed as the Bison crushed the Catholic Cardinals 47-27 before 1,243 at Cardinal Stadium. The Cardinals (1-1) turned the ball over an astounding five times, including four interceptions by star QB Greg Cordivari. Last night's victory marked the first time in 106 years that Gallaudet (1-1) had defeated their cross-town rival. 106 years (drink that one in, why don't you.)

After exploding for 312 yards and four touchdowns in last week's win over McDaniel, Cordivari found the Bison far less accommodating. Cordivari passed for a measly 115 yards on 19 for 38 attempts and three touchdowns. His counterpart, Gallaudet freshman Todd Bonheyo completed only 6 passes (in 15 attempts) for 88 yards, but added two touchdowns through the air and two more on the ground (along with 31 yards rushing on 15 carries.)

As they did last week, Catholic jumped on top early: Cordivari threw a 6 yard scoring pass to Wes Stringfield before two minutes had elapsed in the first quarter... but Gallaudet responded with 21 straight points to basically put the game out of reach. They built the lead to 24 in the fourth quarter, before back QB Kyle Bernard tossed a meaningless TD pass to Christian Baker with 10 seconds left.
