SMU scores 49 points in second half to win season opener
The Saint Mary’s Huskies started their 2011 campaign slowly, but came back with a very convincing second half, scoring 49 points in that half alone.
Saint Mary’s went on to win the game 54 – 14 Friday at Huskies Stadium in a contest in which every Huskies quarterback on the depth chart got playing time in the fruitless first half.
Mount Allison had no answer on the offence after halftime against the reigning AUS champions as all of their first half momentum was erased by the third quarter.
Huskies rookie quarterback Jesse Mills threw for 109 yards and two touchdowns. Ryan Tremblay added to the touchdown total, catching five passes for 80 yards and two touchdowns. SMU also had contributions from Craig Leger’s 109 yards on 17 carries. Melvin Abankwah contributed with 80 yards on 11 carries, and Gray Watt was massive on the defence with three sacks.
