Vermont was nearly perfect in the fourth quarter. Receptions
by Martin, Nolan Rhodes, and Jeff Ulsh brought the Cats to the Maine one-yard
line and Henshaw’s QB sneak finished it off, putting up another touchdown for
the Catamounts. With a minute and a half left to play, Maine strung together a
series of first downs in an attempt to get one more score on the board.
Everyone in attendance had a moment of déjà vu, however, as UVM’s Kempton
intercepted Davison once again and could not be stopped short of the end zone.
When the dust cleared the scoreboard read UVM 31, UMaine 7. The deal was sealed
by a sixth UVM interception, this one by freshman Drew Howrigan in the last 30
seconds of the game.
The UVM Catamounts go on to play the #1 ranked Southwestern
Connecticut Grizzlies Saturday, November 13thin Meriden, CT for the
Yankee Bowl Championship Game. The game will be a rematch of Week 1 action, in
which the Grizzlies beat Vermont 28-21, handing them their only loss of the
season. While Southwestern Connecticut seeks to remain unbeaten, the University
of Vermont looks for redemption and the title of YCFC Champions.
