Loss to Albany ends Monmouth football's control of playoff destiny

Loss to Albany ends Monmouth football's control of playoff destiny
BY JEREMY SCHILLING

Everyone involved knew this was a big game. If Monmouth football wanted to be able to control their destiny to the FCS playoffs the rest of the way they needed to beat Albany, the perennial power in the Northeast Conference.

That is why, in big games like this, sometimes one play that swings momentum from one team to the other can have such an impact. The Hawks were on the losing end of one of those momentum-shifters today, and ultimately played a major part in their (3-2, 2-1) 55-24 loss to Albany (4-1, 2-0) today in Albany, New York. 55 points is the most a Monmouth team has ever given up in this, their 20th season of existence.

“I think Albany proved they are an outstanding football team and they proved why they are getting votes for the top 25,” said head coach Kevin Callahan. “This game was completely one-sided, they were in control of the game from the start. We made a little bit of a push to get ourselves back in there in the beginning of the fourth quarter but after closing to within 10 we weren’t able to capitalize on anything after that. It is hard to find one area of the game that we won.”

Monmouth got the opening kickoff and came out firing. Quarterback Kyle Frazier led them on an impressive 12-play, 82-yard drive, leading to a 24-yard touchdown pass to Tyler George to make it 7-0 Hawks. That was George’s first touchdown catch of the year.
