Fordham Falls to Yale
Chase Edmonds’ return foiled by Bulldogs
SPORTS- The good news for the Fordham football squad was on the Rams‘ first offensive play from scrimmage a familiar face was in the backfield as senior All-American running back Chase Edmonds returned to action after missing the past two games. The bad news for the Rams was that Edmonds’ return was thwarted by Yale, who upended Fordham 41-10 on Jack Coffey Field.
With the loss, Fordham falls to 1-4 on the year while Yale stays unbeaten at 3-0.
Despite the presence of Edmonds, the Fordham offense couldn’t get on track as the Rams were limited to 300 yards of total offense in the game with Edmonds gaining 83 yards on 16 carries while quarterback Kevin Anderson completed 13 of 28 passes for 140 passing yards, his lowest output of the year.
Freshman running back Zach Davis rushed for 50 yards on eight carries and scored his first collegiate touchdown.
Freshman placekicker Andrew Mevis connected on a 31-yard field in the second quarter, his first career collegiate field goal.
Anderson was held without a passing touchdown and he remains tied with John Skelton for the Fordham career record (69).
The Rams dropped their third straight for the first time since the end of the 2011 season.
