Trinity Football Routs Previously Unbeaten Middlebury for 46th Straight Home Win

Bantams Prepare for Homecoming Battle with Amherst on Saturday

Hartford, Conn. – Junior running backs Evan Bunker (Topsfield, Mass.) and Ben Crick (Middlebury, Conn.) combined for 303 rushing yards and five touchdowns, as the Trinity College Bantams handled the visiting Middlebury College Panthers, 45-7, in New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) football action this afternoon at Jessee/Miller Field. Trinity, ranked No. 1 in New England and No. 7 in the ECAC Lambert Meadowlands Poll, wins its nation-best 46th straight regular-season home game, its seventh game in a row, and its third in a row over the Panthers who fall to 5-1 and see their winning streak snapped at seven games.  The Panthers, ranked No. 3 in New England and No. 10 in the ECAC Lambert Meadowlands Poll, had last lost almost exactly a year ago, 42-7, against Trinity in Vermont.  Trinity last lost at home in 2001 to Williams, 31-10, and has never lost a home game on turf.  The Bantams are now alone at the top of the NESCAC at 6-0 with a home game against 5-1 Amherst next Saturday and a road game to end the season at Wesleyan, also 5-1, in two weeks.
