BEVERLY, Mass. – The Endicott football team is set to host Becker College this Saturday at 12 PM in a conference matchup at Hempstead Stadium. Prior to the game, seniors Ryan Bentz (Epping, N.H.), Christian Filonow (Nashua, N.H.), Brett Fox (Niantic, Conn.), Sam Hayes (Shrewsbury, Mass.), Geoffrey Paige (Abington, Mass.), Zachary Poirier (Pawcatuck, Conn.), Samuel Smith (Middlebury, Vt.), and Lavante Wiggins (Pittsfield, Mass.) will all be honored in a pre-game ceremony as part of Saturday's Senior Day ceremonies.
NEED TO KNOW: This weekend's matchup will be the first-ever meeting between the two programs.
ENDICOTT (STATS): The Gulls are coming off a 52-13 victory over Nichols. Endicott currently ranks fourth in total offense (332.0) and first in passing yards per game (229.7) in the conference. The Gulls will look to continue that pace on Saturday against Becker who has given up the third-most passing yards per game defensively in the conference (203.4).
BECKER (STATS): The Hawks have only scored 41 points in nine games played this season (five touchdowns, two field goals, five extra points). Becker also has been shut out five times on the year.
