#9 Catawba opens season with 55-0 win over Livingstone

  SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba College, ranked ninth in the AFCA pre-season poll, opened its 2001 football season with a 55-0 victory over crosstown rival Livingstone in the annual Mayor's Cup game on Saturday afternoon at Shuford Stadium.  Catawba's defense surrendered just 76 yards and only 19 on the ground, while recording five sacks and producing six turnovers.   The Indians took the opening kickoff and marched 44 yards on six plays, aided by three Livingstone penalties to go on top 8-0.  The Indians added a field goal, then capitalized on a Blue Bear fumble that led to a short run by Marcus Bland (Garner, NC) to up the lead to 18-0 at the end of the opening quarter.

   Senior Matt Gross (Hendersonville, NC) added a field goal early in the second quarter, establishing a new school record for career field goals with 41.  Bland added another short touchdown run and O.J. Lennon (Greensboro, NC) caught a 38-yard strike from Scott Sensing (Thomasville, NC) with 1:27 in the half to make it 35-0 at the break.  Catawba added two more short scoring runs and a defensive score in the last half for the final margin.

   Freshman Rodney Wallace (Bamberg, SC) led the Tribe rushing attack with 49 yards on a dozen carries.  Red-shirt freshman Mark Melvin (Whiteville, NC) added 39 yards on nine tries.  Sensing completed 8-of-12 passes for 94 yards and a score.  Cedric Squirewell (Ridgeway, SC) made one catch to extend his streak  to 23 games to set a new school record.

   Livingstone got 27 yards rushing from Robert Jordan and another 20 from Michael Tubolino.  Joel Ward passed for 57 yards for the Blue Bears. Linebacker Jason Ocean had 22 tackles in a losing effort.
