MILTON, Mass. – Behind a season-high 555 yards on offense, the Endicott football team routed Curry College, 52-22, on Saturday evening at Walter M. Katz Field.
The Gulls received career days from quarterback Joe Kalosky (Plymouth, Conn.), running back Anthony Whiteley (Pittsfield, Mass.), and wide receivers Shea McManaway (Lisbon, Conn.) and Christian Cole (Goshen, N.Y.) in the victory.
Kalosky threw for 245 yards (19 completions, 29 attempts, one interception) and a career-high five touchdowns, while McManaway hauled in a career-high nine receptions (91 yards) and a career-high three touchdowns, to highlight the Gulls.

Cole was next on the highlight reel tape for the Gulls as the senior wideout torched his defender down the right sideline for a 55-yard score (8:37, 45-22), and then Whiteley punctuated the win as the game wound down with an 82-yard TD straight through the heart of the Colonels' defense to conclude the scoring at 52-22 (1:10).
