Bates Full Game Stats


BRUNSWICK, Maine - Bates College sophomore Kane Jankoski (Spencer, Mass.) threw for three touchdown passes in his second career start, while sophomore running back Sean Atkins (New York, N.Y.) amassed 175 yards along with a score, helping the Bobcats roll to a 44-13 victory over Bowdoin on Saturday afternoon. Sophomore Marc VanKeuren (Arlington, Mass.) also helped out the Bates (1-6) cause with two touchdown runs on the afternoon.

Bates took a 6-0 lead with 13 ticks left in the first quarter as Jankoski hit first-year tight end Mike Moynahan (Gloucester, Mass.) with the first of two scoring strikes. Bowdoin (0-7) answered as senior Tim Lawson (So. Portland, Maine) broke free off the left side and rumbled 56 yards to tie the score at 6-6 early in the second frame. However, that is as close as the game would get as Bates scored three unanswered touchdowns before the end of the half to take a 27-6 cushion into the break. The Bobcats blocked punts in the second that turned directly into 14 Bates points.

Midway through the third period Bowdoin trimmed the Bates lead to 17-13 when junior Mike Taylor (Marblehead, Mass.) scored on a nine-yard rush. Bates answered before the end of the third on VanKeuren's first score - a two-yard plunge - for a 34-13 lead that ballooned to 44-13 with a Rejean Guerriero (Spofford, N.H.) 25-yard field goal that tied the senior kicker for first place on Bates' all-time list with 18, and VanKeuren's second touchdown.

Jankoski completed 11-of-18 passes for just 90 yards with two interceptions, but three of his passes ended in pay-dirt. Three Bowdoin quarterbacks combined to go 6-of-17 with three interceptions. Lawson led the Polar Bear effort with 135 yards on 26 carries and a touchdown. Bates' 44 points scored in the contest were the most the Bobcats have tallied in the 103-game history between the two teams, surpassing last year's 38-point outburst that was tied with the 1967 team.
