CUA looks for third third straight win vs. McDaniel on Saturday

WASHINGTON - A pair of 2-0 teams meet on Saturday afternoon inside Cardinal Stadium as CUA welcomes McDaniel to town.  The Cardinals are coming off a 42-32 win over Apprentice School last weekend in which they racked up 441 yards of total offense, including a 304-yard, five-touchdown passing performance by sophomore quarterback Greg Cordivari.  McDaniel meanwhile scored just one offensive touchdown in its 13-10 win vs. Moravian.

CUA will be taking on McDaniel for the 16th time this weekend with the Green Terror leading the series 11-4.  McDaniel won last year’s meeting 21-17 in Maryland, while CUA earned a 31-7 victory in D.C. in 2008.

CUA scored five offensive touchdowns last weekend.  The longest drive took only 1:51 and the average time of the Cardinals’ five scoring drives was just 1:10.

Senior safety Dylan O’Shea is the leader of the CUA defense and last week he showed why.  The native of Connecticut registered two tackles, one interception and a team-leading three pass breakups in the Cardinals win.

Saturday’s game is slated to kick off at noon from Cardinal Stadium.  Fans that can’t make it out to the game can watch live on with Dustin White, Frank Persico and Darin Hazel handling the commentary.
