Football Ends 43-Year Little 3 Jinx with 16-14 Homecoming Win vs. Williams for Title
Building a 13-0 lead in the third quarter and getting some key plays down the stretch late in the fourth quarter, Wesleyan came through with a 16-14 Homecoming victory over Williams Sat., Nov. 2. Coupled with the Cardinals’ 20-14 triumph at Amherst Oct. 19, Wesleyan secured its first outright Little Three football title since 1970 and clinched at least a tie for the 2013 NESCAC crown. Wesleyan head coach Mike Whalen (photo bottom middle) had much to celebrate in his fourth season at the helm.
Highlights in the game included three field goals by Sebastian Aguirre ’94 of 35, 31 and 22 yards as well as his two extra points accounting for nine points; a huge interception by Jake Bussani ’14 (#1, photo bottom left) at the Williams’ 46-yard line with 2:43 left; and the running of Kyle Gibson ’15 (#24, photo bottom right), including a big first-down run on 3rd-and-1 at the Williams’ 37 with 1:43 on the clock. That gave Wesleyan a chance to run out the clock with three kneel-downs.
Wesleyan got its lone TD from LaDarius Drew ’15 on a four-yard run at 12:33 of the second period, helping Wesleyan to a 10-0 halftime lead.
Wesleyan outgained Williams, 293-177, and gained points from each of its four trips in the red zone during the game.
Wesleyan, now 7-0 on the year for the first time since 1969, can complete its first undefeated season in 44 years Sat., Nov. 9 at Trinity, equaling the effort of the ’69 squad.
