POUGHKEEPSIE – The Marist football program held its annual Spring Game on Sunday at Tenney Stadium, with the Red squad earning a 19-13 triumph over the White squad.

The Red squad got on the scoreboard first on a 37-yard field goal by freshman Brett Blank (Point Pleasant, N.J.) in the first quarter. However, later in the first quarter, White took the lead when sophomore quarterback Ed Achziger (Dublin, Calif.) threw a touchdown pass to sophomore receiver Zach Williams (Cambridge, Mass.), a drive that included a long run by Achziger. White maintained a 7-3 lead after the first quarter.

Red took the lead for good on the strength of a 16-point second quarter. Blank converted a 20-yard field goal to cut the deficit to 7-6. Sophomore Garrett Clay (Cumberland, Md.) ran for a four-yard touchdown to put Red up for good, and a 55-yard touchdown pass from freshman quarterback Anthony Francis (Providence, R.I.) to freshman wide receiver Demarcus Hall (Garland, Texas) in the final minutes of the period gave Red a 19-7 lead at the intermission. Red’s prolific second quarter was a result of big plays in all phases, including a punt block by senior wide receiver Armani Martin (Pembroke Pines, Fla.), a sack by sophomore defensive end Landon Moore (Saratoga Springs, N.Y.), a long interception return by freshman safety Kwame Darko (Bronx, N.Y.) and a 32-yard run by freshman running back Marcellus Calhoun (Columbus, Ohio).

After a scoreless third quarter, which included an interception by Red safety Michael Marston (Glen Ellyn, Ill.), White cut the gap to 19-13 on Achziger’s second touchdown pass, a seven-yard strike to junior wide receiver Joe Tralli (Croton, N.Y.) on a fourth-and-two play. After a blocked punt by sophomore safety Jesse Mainiero (Croton, N.Y.), White got the ball with a chance to win in the closing minutes, but was unable to get another score.

The Spring Game wrapped up the Red Foxes’ practices this spring. Marist will open the 2014 season at Sacred Heart on Saturday, Aug. 30, and will play the first of its six home games on Saturday, Sept. 6 against Bucknell.

In 2013, the Marist football team won a share of the PFL championship for the first time. With an 8-3 overall record, Marist achieved its highest win total in its 36 years as a varsity program. The Red Foxes are entering their sixth year as a member of the PFL in 2014.
