    Guilford College hasn’t won a home game in 3 years. Maybe tonight will be the big turnaround. A win tonight would not only break the home losing streak but put Guilford in a tie for Second Place in the ODAC. Last week the defense stepped up big and played the way Coach R. has coached them to play. The offense was good in particular the wide receivers, I think 8 different receivers caught balls last week. The ODAC teams will take notice if the Quakers can pull one off tonight and will no longer be the DOORMAT of the League.

    Good Luck Quakers and if there are any fans out there that have former players in this game, come on out and help this team win a home game. We may need a 12th man for this one.

    GO QUAKERS

    Bridgewater comes into the Armfield Athletic Center at (4-1)….Bridgewater lost last week to Hampden Sydney…..

    from the Bridgewater web site for football:

    BRIDGEWATER, Va. – After a tough loss less than a week ago at home, the Bridgewater Eagles football team is back in action against Guilford College on the road in a rare Thursday night matchup against the Quakers at Appenzeller Field at the Armfield Athletic Center in Greensboro, N.C.

    Bridgewater last played on Thursday night in 2010 when the Eagles tangled with Southern Virginia at Salem Stadium, the home of the Stagg Bowl. The Eagles took down the Knights by a 32-23 tally in that game which marked the first regularly scheduled Thursday night game in program history.

    This time, the Eagles will do battle with a Guilford squad that hasn’t earned a victory in the series since 2006. In the 2007 game which started Bridgewater’s current five-game winning streak against the Quakers, the Eagles tallied their highest scoring offensive performance in program history in a 76-28 win.

    Last season, the Eagles scored 52 unanswered points in a 59-13 victory over the visiting Quakers on Homecoming Saturday at Jopson Field. Bridgewater’s offense was outstanding in the win, racking up a season-best 554 yards. On the ground, the Eagles bulled for 364 yards, led by Anthony Carter’s 131 yards on 16 carries. Darrin McKenzie added in 62 yards on six carries, while Willie Logan chipped in 72 yards on just a trio of runs.

    Last week, Bridgewater and Guilford each posted different outcomes as the Quakers earned a solid 20-7 victory at Shenandoah. The multiple-touchdown victory for the Quakers was their first since the 2011 season opener against cross-town rival Greensboro in the Gate City Soup Bowl.

    Guilford is paced offensively by the play of freshman quarterback Matt Pawlowski. Pawlowski is completing 58.5 percent of his passes for more than 200 yards per game. He has nine touchdown passes on the year but has been picked off four times.

    On the ground, tailback Mike Williams is pacing the rushing attack with 313 yards and one touchdown on the season.

    Offensively, the Quakers are averaging just shy of 344 yards per game and are putting up 24 points a week.

    On the defensive side of the ball, reigning Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Defensive Player of the Week Robert Smith leads the way for the Quakers. Smith, a linebacker, led the Quakers’ defensive effort that limited the Hornets to 206 total offensive yards last Saturday. He had four solo tackles and nine assists, extending his streak of games with 10 or more takedowns to six. Smith leads the ODAC in tackles with 64.
