Looney sets record as Marist posts shutout

The Marist defense posted its first shutout in four years as the Red Foxes dominated Valparaiso, 37-0. The Crusaders were held to just 169 yards of total offense in the game.

POUGHKEEPSIE - Senior quarterback Chuckie Looney set the Marist football program’s career record for passing yards, and the Red Foxes recorded their first shutout in four years in a 37-0 win over Valparaiso at Tenney Stadium on Saturday.

Looney finished the game 11-for-15 for 188 yards and two touchdowns, and was removed from the game late in the third quarter after Marist took a 31-0 lead. He now has 4.874 career passing yards. On Saturday, he surpassed the record of 4,703 yards formerly held by James Luft, who played at Marist from 2001-05.

Offensively, Marist gained 409 yards of total offense, with 250 passing and 159 rushing. Fifth-year senior wide receiver Bartley Leneghan led the Red Foxes with 126 yards receiving on four receptions, which included a 49-yard touchdown. Senior running back Atiq Lucas ran for 59 yards on 10 carries and a touchdown.

The Marist defense recorded 12 tackles for loss, six sacks, two interceptions and a fumble recovery. The defense also scored a touchdown when sophomore cornerback Zachary Quarles forced a fumble that senior linebacker Paul Sakowski returned 18 yards for a score in the first quarter.

The Red Foxes held the Crusaders to just 169 yards of total offense and 12 first downs. Fifth-year senior defensive end Terrence Fede had a team-high eight tackles, as well as two sacks and a forced fumble. In addition to his forced fumble, Quarles had an interception in the end zone and six tackles, including one for a loss.

A Lucas touchdown opened the scoring, and capped a four-play, 61-yard drive with 10:16 left in the first quarter. Sakowski’s touchdown gave Marist a 14-0 lead just 54 seconds later. The Looney-to-Leneghan 49-yard touchdown strike came in the second quarter, and the Red Foxes took a 21-0 lead into halftime.

A 41-yard field goal by senior kicker Jesse Signa put Marist up 24-0 early in the fourth quarter. Looney then found senior tight end David Diomede for a 10-yard scoring strike. A four-yard touchdown run by junior running back Jared Lynch closed out the scoring.
