Marist loses 35-33 on the game’s final play

QB Chuckie Looney set a single-game program record with five touchdown passes in the Red Foxes’ last-second loss against San Diego on Saturday, October 12, 2013.

SAN DIEGO, CA - The Marist football team suffered a 35-33 loss at San Diego in a Pioneer Football League on Saturday at Torero Stadium.

With the Red Foxes leading 33-32, San Diego kicker David Last missed a 33-yard field goal. However, Marist was called for running into the kicker. With no time left, Last converted a 28-yard field goal attempt to lift the Toreros to a 35-33 triumph.

Marist senior quarterback Chuckie Looney set a single-game program record with five touchdown passes. Looney was 19-for-33 for 298 yards. Senior wide receiver Armani Martin caught six passes for a game-high 118 yards and three touchdowns.

For San Diego, quarterback Mason Mills was 20-for-39 for 349 yards with three touchdowns and an interception. The Toreros had a pair of 100-yard receivers in Brandon White (five catches, 100 yards) and Reggie Bell (four catches, 104 yards, one touchdown). San Diego outgained Marist in total yards, 463-374.

The game was scoreless until Looney hit Martin for a 19-yard touchdown to cap an 11-play, 95-yard drive. After a San Diego safety and a 32-yard field goal by Last on the ensuing drive, Marist’s lead was cut to 7-5. However, Looney’s 33-yard touchdown pass to fifth-year senior wide receiver Bartley Leneghan gave Marist a 14-5 lead.

Just 2:16 into the third quarter, Looney’s 66-yard touchdown pass to Martin put Marist up 20-5. However, San Diego scored 27 unanswered points on the strength of three touchdown passes by Mills in a span of 9:59 to go up 32-20.

Looney’s 29-yard touchdown pass to junior wide receiver Joe Tralli brought the Red Foxes to within 32-28 with 12:02 left. With San Diego driving deep into Marist territory halfway through the third quarter, senior free safety Nick Kaszei picked off a Mills pass and returned it 88 yards to the San Diego 3. On fourth-and-goal from the nine, Looney’s touchdown pass to Martin in the back left corner of the end zone put the Red Foxes back in the lead at 33-32 with 5:19 remaining.

San Diego then came back to drive the length of the field for Last’s game-winning field goal.
