Bucs Fall Back Early in Loss at Ripon

October 26, 2013 at 6:09 pm

Mason DixonRipon, WI -- The Beloit College Football team fell behind in the first half and couldn't make up the deficit in a 40-14 Midwest Conference loss at Ripon College on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Hawks scored the lone TD of the opening quarter but missed the point-after to lead 6-0 through one.  They tacked on three scores in the second quarter, two on runs and one through the air, to build their lead to 26-0 at the break.  They then added the only score of the third quarter on a scoring pass to lead 33-0 heading to the fourth.

Beloit got on the board 36 seconds into the final quarter when Kam Sallee hit Michael Nolden with a 16-yard TD pass.  After RC got their final score on a short run three minutes later, Mason Dixon closed out the scoring with 10:49 remaining on a 74-yard run, the longest of his short career.

Dixon finished with 148 yards on the ground on 20 carries to top the 1,000-yard mark for the season.  The last time a Buccaneer runner went over that plateau was 2005 when Lee Rankinen gained an all-time record 1,434 yards.  Sallee had 86 yards rushing on nine carries and passed for 64.  Lukeson Versulien caught two passes for 60 yards, including a 35-yard reception, and finished with 116 all-purpose yards.

Defensively, Riley Pearson had 18 tackles, six solo, tying for the fourth-most in Beloit history.  His 12 tackle assists tied for the third-most, the fifth time that's been accomplished.  Derell Carter added nine tackles and Mat Kahl eight.

The Bucs stay on the road next Saturday when they play at MWC co-leader St. Norbert College.  Kickoff is at 1:00 p.m.
