QUAKERS LOSE OPENER
September 2, 2012Eastern Indiana Sports
David Kalgren made Oberlin College’s halftime six points brighter.
He went right back to it in the second half, returning a second interception for a touchdown.
The Yeomen’s defense made an impact Saturday afternoon, leading the way in a 33-3 victory over Earlham College in the Quakers’ first game under new head coach Neil Kazmierczak.
It was also Earlham’s first game on renovated turf at Darrell Beane Stadium, and Kalgren twice turned it into a track meet, running back picks of 47 and 43 yards for scores.
“We can get better. We need to get better. But I was proud of the effort,” Kazmierczak said. “The effort was good. We just need to stay at it.”
Kalgren stayed with the ball, and gave the Yeomen a shot in the arm heading into the half.
He grabbed his first interception and returned it for the game’s first touchdown, turning a 9-0 lead into a 15-0 advantage with 2 seconds remaining in the first half.
Kalgren gave Oberlin its second touchdown early in the third quarter when he returned another interception for a TD and a 22-0 lead.
