FABRIZIO LEADS TRINITY 
TO A 13-7 WIN AT TUFTS

Medford, MA - Freshman Brian Fabrizio (Norwell, MA) ran for a touchdown and
passed for another to lead Trinity (3-1) to a 13-7 victory over the Tufts
University Jumbos (3-1) in New England Small College Athletic Conference
(NESCAC) football action on Saturday afternoon.
	Fabrizio finished with 126 yards on 22 carries.  The tailback opened
the scoring with a two-yard TD plunge on a fourth down with 6:59 remaining
in the first quarter to finish a 10-play, 50-yard drive by the Bantams.  In
the third quarter, he took a handoff at the Tufts 5-yard line and surprised
the Jumbos by tossing a touchdown pass to wide open senior Mike Healey
(Newton, MA) to give Trinity a 13-0 lead with 8:35 left in the half.
	With 9:31 left in the fourth, sophomore Renato DePaolis scored the
Jumbos' only touchdown on a one-yard run, but that was as close as they
came.  Tufts' fourth quarter rally made for an exciting finish, but their
last ditch effort with 16 seconds remaining on a pass from the Trinity 36
was incomplete, and the Bantams held on for the win.  
	Thanks to the great work by the Trinity defense, the Jumbos were
unable to get far for three and a half quarters.  Tufts finished with just
10 yards rushing on 24 carries and Trinity collected 4 interceptions off
quarterback Chris Fahy's passes.  Two of those interceptions came from
sophomore Steve Cella (Peabody, MA) which brings him to six on the season.
