Beloit, WI -- The Beloit College Football team couldn't overcome a big first half by St. Norbert College at Strong Stadium on Saturday on the way to a 68-28 Midwest Conference loss.
The Green Knights scored three TDs in the opening quarter and tacked on four more in the second. The Buccaneers got a 12-yard touchdown catch from Danny May to Ryan Sughroue that tied the game at 7-all in the first quarter and then May rushed in from five yards out late in the second quarter to make it a 48-14 game at the break.
SNC scored twice more in the third quarter, with Mason Dixon's three-yard scoring run the only Buccaneer tally, before each team scored once in the fourth, with an 11-yard TD pass from Ben Sposito to Sawyer Lindland closing out the scoring with just over four minutes remaining.
The Bucs finished with 430 yards of offense, 253 passing, while St. Norbert totaled 668, 402 through the air. Mason Dixon finished with 106 yards on the ground on 31 carries. May had 179 yards passing and Michael Nolden had 90 receiving yards on seven catches.
Defensively Quin Dixon and Brenden Endrina both had eight tackles. David Lafayette forced a fumble that was recovered by Andre Prikhodko and Adrian Johanningmeier had the team's lone sack.
Beloit looks to end their slump at Ripon College next Saturday in a 1:00 p.m. kickoff.
