Maysonet, Jackolski push Football past Charleston Southern, 50-31
Nov. 5, 2011
Charleston, S.C. - Junior Miguel Maysonet (Riverhead, N.Y.) set the Stony Brook record for career rushing touchdowns as the Seawolves rushed for seven scores in a 50-31 win over Charleston Southern on Saturday at CSU Stadium.
Maysonet, who entered the game with 21 touchdowns, rushed for four touchdowns, breaking Bobby Kane's record of 23 touchdowns set in 1996. He finished with 182 rushing yards on just 17 carries.
Not to be outdone, senior Brock Jackolski (Shirley, N.Y.) rushed for 174 yards on 20 carries and two touchdowns, including a 55-yarder in the fourth quarter.
Both running backs went over 1,000 yards for the season as Maysonet has 1,178 yards and 13 touchdowns and Jackolski has 1,001 yards and eight touchdowns. Stony Brook has 29 rushing touchdowns this season.
Stony Brook rushed for 355 yards on 43 carries. It was the third game this season that the Seawolves have rushed for at least 300 yards.
The win is the sixth straight for Stony Brook (6-3, 4-0 Big South), which is a new school record. The win also is the fifth straight game with at least 42 points scored.
"Brock and Miguel complement each other so well," coach Chuck Priore said. "They are very special to this team. What makes them so great is that they have no hidden agenda."
Stony Brook's rushing defense was outstanding, allowing -7 rushing yards on 32 carries. "That was on point today," Priore said. "We forced them into a lot of passing situations, which they were good at today. But I'm proud of our team. We controlled the game the whole time."
Charleston Southern quarterback Richard Mounce threw for 342 yards and three touchdowns. Nathan Perera caught 10 passes for 232 yards and two touchdowns.
Junior Dan Mulrooney (Prospect, Conn.) made nine tackles to lead the defense. Senior Andrew Nelson (Uniondale, N.Y.) had a fumble recovery and sophomore Reginald Francklin (Valley Stream, N.Y.) tackled punter Andy Brown in the end zone for a safety.
Stony Brook is on the road next week, traveling to take on Gardner-Webb on November 12 at 1:30.
