Robert Morris Football Cruises Past Stony Brook, 45-19
Nov. 3, 2001
Moon Township, Pa. - One week after tying a school and Northeast Conference single-game record for touchdown passes in a game with five, senior quarterback Tim Levcik (Ford Cliff, Pa. / Ford City) guided the Robert Morris College (5-3 / 5-1 NEC) football team to a 45-19 win over visiting Stony Brook (1-6, 1-4 NEC) by breaking two more single-game school marks.
Levcik finished the afternoon 26-for-35 for 363 yards and four touchdowns, breaking his own single-game school records in both completions and passing yardage. Levcik's old record of completions (23) came October 28, 2000 at Wagner, while his old record of 330 passing yards came October 3, 1998, also at Wagner. Robert Morris also established a new single-game school record for offensive yards in a game, as the 545 it compiled surpassed the 521 yards against Albany (11/11/00).
The Seawolves struck first in the game, as running back Ken Lockhart rushed six times for 32 yards that set up quarterback T.J. Moriarty's nine-yard strike to Lucas Niskanen for the contest's opening score. The Colonials came back, however, on their next drive. Levcik marched Robert Morris 80 yards down the field on six plays, completing four passes to three different receivers, and found freshman Stephen McNair (Miami, Fla. / Miami Edison) for a 15 yard touchdown to put RMC up, 7-6.
Lockhart then capped a six-play, 78-yard drive on Stony Brook's next possession with a 55-yard touchdown scamper to give the Seawolves a 13-7 lead. Robert Morris took the lead in the second quarter for good, however, when Levcik found sophomore Brent Hockenberry (Kittanning, Pa./Kittanning) for a 22-yard score that gave RMC a 14-13 lead.
Junior running back Sam Dorsett (Hollywood, Fla./Flanagan) rushed for 152 yards on 28 carries for Robert Morris, while Hockenberry and McNair became the first pair of Colonial receivers to each record 100-yard receiving games. Hockenberry finished with six catches for 106 yards and a touchdown, while McNair had five catches for 112 yards and a score.
Lockhart led Stony Brook rushers with 169 yards on 22 carries, while Moriarty finished 7-for-19 for 106 yards, a touchdown and one interception. Robert Morris next plays on the road at Albany November 10, while Stony Brook will host Central Connecticut State.
