Game MVP Joe Kalosky threw for 275 yards and accounted for six touchdowns as Endicott capitalized on several Dean mistakes to take a 52-10 decision over the Bulldogs in a New England Bowl Series game on Saturday afternoon.
The win for the Gulls sees them wrap up the 2019 season with a 9-2 overall record, while Dean finishes 4-6 with a conference title in their back pocket and a wealth of returners set to lead in 2020.
HOW IT HAPPENED:
After Endicott took an early 7-0 lead, the Bulldogs answered back with a Jacob Bisson (Barrington, N.H.) 26-yard field goal.
Dean then marched 70 yards on 14 plays and Terrell Watts (New Haven, Conn.) raced into the endzone from seven yards out to give the Bulldogs a 10-7 lead midway through the second quarter.
The Gulls quickly seized momentum by scoring 17 points in the quarter's final seven plus minutes to storm into halftime ahead, 24-10.
Kalosky threw two touchdowns in the third quarter and another in the fourth before Greg Ruff punched in the game's final score on a six-yard run with a little more than six minutes remaining in the game.
INSIDE THE NUMBERS:
Dean committed four turnovers on the afternoon, were held to 93 yards rushing and had 11 penalties accepted.
Watts, was solid in defeat, ending 12-for-20 for 227 yards and the rushing score, while Errol Breaux (Marietta, Ga.) hauled in ten passes for 142 yards.
Quintus Reid (New Haven, Conn.) had three catches for 70 yards and averaged nearly 40 yards (39.2) per punt, including one inside the 20.
Picked to finish second in the ECFC in the preseason coaches' poll, the Bulldogs won the conference outright.
While they will lose three senior defensive starters – Gene Baisden, Jr. (Tampa, Fla.), Shamis Henry (Flemington, N.J.) and Shannon Moxey (Austell, Ga.) – a host of returners are expected to be back in 2020 beginning with offensive stars, Breaux, Reid and Watts.
