TO WIN OVER BOWDOIN

Hartford, CT - Senior linebacker Jeff Iudice (Melrose, MA) notched 18
tackles, one forced fumble, one interception, and 2.5 sacks to lead the
Trinity College Bantams to a 26-0 win over the visiting Bowdoin College
Polar Bears in New England Small College Athletic Conference football action
this afternoon.
	Trinity, who improves their season record to 4-1 with its third
straight win, forced six turnovers in the triumph.  Bowdoin falls to 1-4.
	 The Trinity defense held the Polar Bears to 217 yards, most of
which came after the game was well out of reach, and had five interceptions,
one fumble recovery, and five sacks.  Senior safety Sean Joyce (Quincy, MA)
intercepted a pass with 7:09 remaining in the first quarter and returned it
24 yards for a touchdown to give Trinity a 7-0 lead.  Sophomore Steve Cella
(Peabody, MA) had six tackles and his seventh interception of the season,
while senior linebacker Dale Phelps (Pittsfield, MA) added eight tackles,
two tackles for losses, and one interception. 
	Offensively, Trinity struggled as well, but the Bantams were able to
capitalize on excellent field position with three scores.  Senior
quarterback Gregg Wysocki (New Britain, CT) hit freshman wide receiver Kevin
Waters (Garden City, NY) with a five-yard touchdown pass with 9:20 left in
the second quarter, and freshman tailback Brian Fabrizio (Norwell, MA)
scored on an 18-yard run with 1:09 remaining in the half to give Trinity a
19-0 lead at the intermission.
	Fabrizio finished the day with 22 carries for 95 yards and two
touchdowns, and sophomore tailback Julian Gratry (Chagrin Falls, OH) gained
71 yards on eight carries.  Trinity gained 234 yards on the ground on 45
carries for a 5.4 per-carry average.
	Senior tailback Chris Houston (Winslow, ME) gained 51 yards on 15
carries and junior tight end Rich Bolduc (Auburn, NH) caught four passes for
61 yards. 
	Junior linebacker Nick Krol (Acton, MA) led the Bowdoin defense with
eight tackles and junior defensive back Mike O'Brien (Canton, MA) picked off
two Trinity passes.
	Both quarterbacks struggled in the game.  Wysocki completed seven of
26 passes for 66 yards and two interceptions, and the Bantams did not
complete a pass in the second half.  Junior Kyle Quinn (Canton, MA) and
