CAMBRIDGE, MA – Saturday’s non-conference tilt between Harvard and San Diego concluded with a 28-13 victory for the Crimson. Below are some notes from the final two frames
* Harvard’s Colton Chapple began the second half completing one of three passes for 10 yards. He was also sacked, too. However, he recovered early in the fourth quarter with an eight-yard pass to Kyle Juszczyk, which gave the Crimson the lead for good.
* San Diego appeared to have all the momentum once the second half commenced, as they tallied two scores on back-to-back drives in the third. However, after Harvard went ahead in the fourth, the Toreros offense returned to the field and failed to convert their 17th first down of the game, as Brian Reilly chased quarterback Mason Mills out of the pocket on a third-down and four.
* Harvard’s running back Treavor Scales secured the win following a failed fourth down attempt by San Diego’s offense, as he ripped off a 66-yard touchdown run late in the final quarter.
* In the fourth quarter, Harvard’s offense compiled 236 yards through the air and on the ground, while San Diego ended the period with 84 yards.
* San Diego was whistled five times in the second half, while Harvard recorded one penalty.
