AMHERST SHUTS OUT TRINITY FOOTBALL

Medford, MA - Junior quarterback Peter Honig threw two touchdown passes to
junior wide receiver Matt Hall to lead Amherst College Lord Jeffs (5-2) to a
27-0 victory over the visiting Trinity College Bantams (4-3) in New England
Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) football action on Saturday
afternoon.
	Amherst sophomore running back Okey Ugwonali scored from three yards
out in the game's opening drive and the Honig hit Hall on his first
touchdown catch of the day after a Trinity fumble to give Amherst a 14-0
lead after one quarter.
	51 seconds into the second quarter, Honig connected with Hall again
to give the Jeffs a 20-0 advantage at the half.  Amherst scored their fourth
touchdown with 8:52 remaining in the third quarter on a 13-yard pass from
Honig to sophomore tight end Andrew Daniels.
	Trinity never threatened offensively, managing just nine first downs
and 11 total yards, while turning the ball over five times.  Freshman
tailback Brian Fabrizio (Norwell, MA), the NESCAC's leading rusher entering
the game, gained 61 yards on 14 carries.
	Trinity senior linebacker Jeff Iudice (Melrose, MA) matched a
season-high with 18 tackles, including four for losses and one sack.  Fellow
