McDaniel (1-6, 0-6 CC) and Dickinson (3-4, 3-3 CC) met at McDaniel’s Homecoming Game on Saturday. The Green Terror fought valiantly, but they came up short against Dickinson, who won 33-28.

McDaniel jumped out of the gate with an early score. Then Dickinson answered back with a quick score of their own.

The back and forth between McDaniel and Dickinson happened one more time to put the score at 14-14. Dickinson scored a few more times to put their score at 33.

McDaniel restarted their attack in the third quarter to bring down the lead. Eventually in the fourth, McDaniel brought down the lead to 5. They had one last chance to score.

Dickinson’s punter had a miscue with his punt. McDaniel started their drive with solid field position. Then, after getting a first down, they attempted four passes in a row, to no avail. McDaniel turned the ball over on downs and then Dickinson ran the remainder of the clock down to zero.

Matty Callahan, the sophomore quarterback for McDaniel, went 23-41 on passing attempts, with 281 yards, 3 TDs and 2 INTs.

John Chamberlin, Tayahd Campbell and Sean Montgomery, all first year students, and Callahan combined for 119 yards rushing and 1 TD.

McDaniel will travel to Juniata for a 1 p.m. game on Nov. 1.
