October 8, 2012 at 8:00 PM

Bryant University wide receiver Robert Ingebresten (Berkeley Heights, Jr.) scored his first collegiate touchdown on Saturday as the Bulldogs lost to Albany, 31-14, in Smithfield, R.I. The Gov. Livingston High grad tallied on an 18-yard pass play in the second quarter. Albany’s Zach Troutman (New Providence, Fr.) had only one tackle in the game, but it came with an exclamation point, as he sacked the Bryant signal caller for a loss of seven yards. Bryant (0-6) looks for that elusive first win on Saturday when they host Robert Morris, while Albany (5-1) has a date at home with St. Francis (Pa.).

Vin Fischer (Livingston, Sr.) scored Montclair State’s only touchdown in Saturday’s 33-7 loss to Rowan at Sprague Field. The six points were earned on a 10-yard reception from quarterback Drew Cathey. Fischer caught one other pass for a 10-yard gain, while teammate Aaron Williams (West Orange, Fr.) also picked up a first down with a reception. Dan Barletta (New Providence, Fr.) teamed up on two tackles for the Red Hawks (2-4), who have a date with The College of New Jersey in Montclair on Saturday.

James Siracusa (New Providence, Sr.) of The College of New Jersey hit double figures in tackles in Saturday’s 42-28 loss to Cortland State in Ewing. Four were solo jobs. He also intercepted one pass. The Lions are 2-3 in advance of Saturday’s game at Montclair.

Union is all square at 3-3 after Saturday’s 21-7 triumph over Worcester Poly in Worcester, Mass. Tosin Kazeem (Short Hills, Soph.) converted all three extra-point tries and booted one kickoff that traveled 55 yards. The Dutchmen, who began the season 0-3, look to keep the wins coming on Oct. 20, when they take on Rochester at home.

Matt Rea (Summit, Jr.) gained 28 yards on 10 carries in Middlebury’s 24-3 home victory over Amherst on Saturday. Rea’s long gain was a 6-yarder. The Panthers (3-0) are slated to visit Williams on Saturday.

Edgar Osols (Summit, Sr.) converted field goal attempts of 35 and 32 yards on Saturday as Mass.-Dartmouth lost, 57-21, at home to Salve Regina. Osols booted six kickoffs, which traveled an average of 64.3 yards, while seven punts were good for an average 36.4 yards, with the longest going 45 yards and two sticking inside the Salve Regina 20-yard line. The Corsairs (1-5) are at Nichols this Saturday.

Kean’s 58-7 rout of Western Connecticut State in Union on Saturday offered ample chance for participation among the Cougars. Jimmy Mattina (Madison, Jr.) recorded one unassisted tackle, while Nicholas Fuentes (New Providence, Jr.) booted a 40-yard punt. Kean (3-2) takes on William Paterson in Wayne on Saturday.

Portland State snapped a 4-game losing streak with a 77-10 mauling of Idaho State at home on Saturday. Bryant Long (South Orange, Jr.) got credit for one unassisted tackle for the Vikings (2-4), who will venture south in two weeks to play Cal Poly.

A number of employers dangle a lump sum offer to employees in part to remove future liabilities from their balance sheets. It’s tempting for ...
