The football team got its season off to a winning start last night with a 40-28 win at Fordham. Running back Ray Rangel ran for 125 yards, quarterback Millicent Olawale added another 95 yards on the ground and 167 in the air, and the Lions defense intercepted Fordham quarterback John Skelton three times, including a crucial interception returned for a touchdown by cornerback Jared Morine with under 5 minutes to play. The Lions host Central Connecticut State next weekend for their home opener.
In other sporting news, the field hockey team won its Ivy League opener, 2-0 over Brown, behind two goals from Catherine Campbell, and the volleyball team won all three of its matches in the Columbia Classic. Only the soccer teams were unable to record wins, with the women drawing Hofstra 1-1, and the men losing to Saint Peter’s 2-0.
