Husson University beats Springfield College despite QB injury

BANGOR — Not even the loss of their starting quarter-back could keep Husson University’s football team from victory Saturday afternoon.

Then again, when your ground game is averaging 5.2 yards per carry, you don’t need a quarterback to do much more than hand the ball off.

Starting QB James McCandles and his substitute, Jack Hersom, did a little bit more than that, but didn’t need to do much more, as Justin Lindie rushed for 123 yards to lead the Eagles to a 39-21 win over Springfield College on a bright and blustery day at Winkin Complex.

Julius Williams accounted for another 96 yards to bolster the rushing attack for the 4-2 Eagles, who scored three of their five touchdowns on the ground.

The 1-4 Springfield Pride offense was held to 172 total yards, 132 coming on the ground.

McCandles left the game at halftime as a precaution after taking a blow to the head, on a tackle. He was reportedly OK after the game and available to start next week.
