No. 20 Lafayette at No. 14/13 Holy Cross
November 14, 2009
Lafayette's bid to win its seventh Patriot League title came up two points short, 28-26, at Holy Cross in the de facto Patriot League title game. The matchup featured two nationally-ranked squads with No. 14/13 Holy Cross hosting No. 20 Lafayette at a muddy Fitton Field. Holy Cross fifth-year senior QB Dominic Randolph threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, finishing the game 23-of-37 for 348 yards and three interceptions. Lafayette's Rob Curley continued to make his All-Patriot League case, completing 23-of-32 for 312 yards, two TD's and an interception. Late in the fourth quarter, Lafayette was 3rd-and-10 at the Holy Cross 35. Curley threw a ball to Mark Layton, but Layton was run into by the defender leaving one official grasping for his flag, which he never threw, and Leopard fans distraught with the no-call. The potential game-winning drive ended with no points.
Final Score: Holy Cross 28, Lafayette 26
