Unluckily for the Dutchmen and Head Coach John Audino, the Union offense led by junior Connor Gallo was unable to get any momentum in the second half. Gallo, who is usually a starting wide receiver, started at quarterback for the first time in his collegiate career and only had a few days to prepare for the game. He took the place of starting quarterback Drew Connolly ‘12, who was unable to play for personal reasons.
Gallo’s day came to a crashing end when he threw two interceptions in Union’s final two possessions. He threw three picks on the day.
On the defensive side of the ball for Union, Steve Modliszewski ‘12 made a game-high 11 tackles while Sean Conerly ‘11 and AJ Rocchio ‘11 recorded nine tackles each. Alex Macchio ‘13 had an interception for the home team.
The Dutchmen (2-3 overall, 2-2 Liberty League) return to action next Saturday for a non-conference matchup with Salisbury at Frank Bailey Field. Last season, the Sea Gulls defeated Union 19-16 in Maryland.
