LEWISTON, Maine -- The Williams College football team lost its second game in embabrrassing fashion, as Bates pounded the Ephs, 33-6. It was the second consecutive win over Williams for the Bobcats.
The Ephs gave the game away in a flurry of turnovers, including three interceptions and two fumbles. The host team capitalized on a Williams fumble early in the first quarter, as Bates quarterback Trevor Smith hit end Kevin Davis for a 36-yard score five minutes into the contest.
An interception set up Bates second score on the next series. Bates embarked on a 14-play, 47-yard drive that culminated in a 12-yard run by Smith. The home side expanded that lead on another long drive, this time ending in a 29-yard field goal by the Bobcats to push the lead to 17-0, which was the halftime score.
Things got no better after intermission. The Bobcats punched in a pair of scores in the third quarter. Running back Pat George and Davis each scored touchdowns and the score was Bates, 30-0. A 17-yard field goal pushed the margin to 33-0 early in the fourth.
Wiliams’ Kristian LaPointe’s one-yard run avoided an Eph whitewash in the final quarter.
