Saturday, October 24, 1998 BOWDOIN FOOTBALL BLANKS TRINITY COLLEGE Brunswick, Maine- Senior Kevin Saxton had nine tackles, three for losses, and two sacks to lead the Bowdoin College Polar Bears to a 19-0 victory over the visiting Trinity College Bantams this afternoon. The victory was the first for Bowdoin over the Bantams in five years. Neither team could get much going offensively in the first half, but the Polar Bears were able to put three points on the board on a 27-yard field goal by Alex Tatum in the first quarter. Bowdoin added to their lead in the third when quarterback Hayes MacArthur sprinted 17 yards on a quarterback keeper for a touchdown. Trinity junior quarterback Gregg Wysocki, making his first career varsity start, played an efficient game, but was intercepted by Bowdoin linebacker Nick Krol on the ensuing drive. Tailback Chris Houston scored Bowdoin's second touchdown in less than a minute on a 23-yard scamper. Tatum added his second field goal of the game (43 yards) in the fourth quarter to round out the scoring. Wysocki completed 19 of 29 passes for 238 yards, but suffered six sacks. Senior tri-captain J.R. Faget had his second straight 100-yard game, including several circus catches, totaling seven receptions for 110 yards. Trinity rushed for just 49 yards on 37 carries and hurt themselves with four fumbles lost and 71 yards in penalties. Junior linebackers Dale Phelps and Jeff Iudice led the Bantam defense with nine tackles each, while junior Sean Joyce added four tackles and an interception.
