    Wagner to Travel Down the Shore to Meet Monmouth in NEC Tilt Coming off the highest-scoring game in Northeast Conference history, a wild 56-48 three-overtime victory over Saint Francis (PA) on Sept. 26, the Wagner College Seahawks engaged Bryant in a defensive battle with the Bulldogs coming out on top by a 6-2 count.

    Seahawks to Meet Hawks for 17th Time Wagner and Monmouth will meet for the 17th time this afternoon and the Hawks hold a slim 9-7 edge in the series which began in 1993. Last season, Monmouth defeated Wagner 31-17 on Oct. 11, 2008. The last time these teams met in West Long Brach, the Seahawks played perhaps their most complete game of the season, running past the Hawks 45-16 on Oct. 13, 2007. Wagner was led that day by a 31-carry, 201-yard rush- ing day by senior RB Jason Butler. The eventual NEC Offensive Player of the Year wound up with four TDs on the afternoon.

    Last Time Out: Bryant 6, Wagner 2

    Smithfield, RI – After taking part in the highest-scoring game in Northeast Conference (NEC) history last week, the Wagner College football team found itself in a defensive battle with Bryant, coming up on the short end of a 6-2 decision at windy and soggy Bulldog Stadium.

    The Seahawks came into the game ranked No. 2 in the nation in scoring at 41.8 points per game following a 56-48 triple-overtime win over Saint Francis (PA) last week but were unable to muster any offensive points vs. the stout Bulldog defense.

    Wagner falls to 2-3 on the season, 1-1 in the NEC while Bryant moves to 3-1 overall, 2-0 in league play.

    The lone Wagner points of the game came on a safety which broke the 0-0 tie and gave the Seahawks a short-lived 2-0 lead. With 3:22 to play in the third quarter and Bryant punting from its own 10-yard line, an errant snap sailed into the end zone and Bulldog punter Tim Miscovich wisely booted through the end zone for the safety as Wagner took the 2-0 lead into the fourth quarter.

    That’s the way the score remained until a bad snap on a punt have Bryant possesson for the ball at the Wagner 37-yard line. From there, Bryant put together a five-play, 37-yard drive, capped by a 17-yard TD jaunt with 10:29 left in the game by RB Jerell Smith, who would finished the day with 178 yards on 31 carries. The extra-point try failed, leaving the Bulldogs with the scant four-point lead. Wagner had its opportunities throughout the second half, taking over several times with excellent field position, but the Bulldogs had every answer on defense.

    Bulldog QB Matt Croce completed 10-of-24 passes for 120 yards.

    While the potent Wagner offense was held in check, this was clearly the Seahawks’ best defensive game of the season. Coming into the game, Wagner was yielding 40.5 points per game. Statistically, Bryant did out-gain Wagner 340 yards to 105.

    Freshman RB Dominique Williams (Bridgeton, NJ/ Milford), coming off three straight 100-yard plus rushing performances, was Wagner’s leading ground- gainer with 49 yards on 14 carries. Freshman QB Nick Doscher (Staten Island, NY/ Moore Catholic) completed 5-of-12 passes for 46 yards and ran for 23 yards on 17 carries, a statistic skewed by being sacked twice for minus 13 yards.

    Defensively for Wagner, sophomore LB Dom Gaston (Phillipsburg, NJ/ Bergen Catholic) and freshman LB C.O. Prime (Quebec, CA/ The Kent School) led the Wagner defense nine tackles apiece.

    Freshman LB C.O. Prime had nine tackles and a forced fumble vs.

    Head Coach Walt Hameline

    Now in his 29th year as Director of Athletics and Head Football Coach at Wagner College, the relentlessly energetic and opt imis t ic Wal t Hameline continues to amass an astounding

    record of achievement and consistency. Under Hameline’s leadership, the Seahawk athletic department has undergone an ambitious expansion in both sport offerings and facility improvements. Known for his keen vision and boundless enthusiam, Hameline was influential in establishing the Seahawk Golf Classic, now in its 19th year, and the Seahawk Club, a pair of intitiaves aimed at increasing funds for the scholarship endowment and complete financial support for the athletic department. Most recently under Hameline’s direction, the Wagner College Stadium field has been resurfaced with a state-of-the-art Field Turf playing surface. This multi-purpose surface was constructed in the summer of 2006 and is used for football, soccer and lacrosse. In 1997 Hameline governed the opening of Wagner’s football stadium and outdoor track & field facility and was instrumental in erecting the Spiro Sports Center in the spring of 1999 - a 93,000 square-foot building which houses a 2,100-seat, multi-purpose arena, a six-lane swimming pool, team locker rooms and all athletic department offices. In 1995, Hameline oversaw the opening of new athletic fields at the base of Grymes Hill to house additional teams. This multi-sport facility is presently home to the Seahawk softball team which, in 2007, underwent a vast reconstruction. An institution of high academic standards, Wagner was cited in the March 18, 2002 edition of US News & World Report for have the 15th best graduation rate amongst more than 300 Division I college and/or universities. Hameline’s coaching record speaks for itself. Heading into the 2009 season, he owns an all-time record of 189-105-2 (.642). Those 189 victories are tied for sixth o
