Central Connecticut overpowers Salve Regina 47-13

Rob Hollomon ripped through the Salve Regina defense to score

three touchdowns, leading Central Connecticut State to a 47-13

victory Saturday.

Hollomon, who amassed 212 yards on only nine carries, had

touchdown runs of 43 and 29 yards in the first quarter. He added a

94-yard touchdown dash in the second quarter, as CCSU (3-5) easily

pulled away to a 35-0 halftime lead. Nick Sangiacomo added to the

total as he was 11 of 15 passing for 159 yards and two touchdowns.

Tyrell Holmes pulled in three passes for 80 yards and two

touchdowns.

Trailing 14-0 in the first quarter, the Seahawks (5-2) drove 62

yards to CCSU’s seven-yard line. Chris Linares intercepted Steven

Wilken’s pass to end that threat. Salve Regina mounted another

drive to CCSU’s 30 when Linares also thwarted that effort when he

picked off another pass.

Wilken had two touchdowns as he threw for 158 yards.
