The offensive trio of Jack Cook, Jake Chisholm and Sam Bubonics accounted for nearly all of the production for the Dayton Flyers football team in a 41-13 rout over the Stetson Hatters in DeLand, Fla., Saturday.
Of senior quarterback Cook’s passing yards (328) and touchdowns (2), freshman receiver Bubonics accounted for almost half, with 143 receiving yards and a touchdown catch. But junior running back Chisholm was even more production with four touchdowns and 113 yards on 23 carries.
Chisholm’s first three touchdown runs helped the Flyers build up a 21-3 lead with 11:56 left in the second quarter, but the Hatters were able to get a touchdown and field goal before halftime to cut the deficit to 21-13.
But after the break, it was all Flyers. Five minutes into the third quarter, Cook found Bubonics for a 67-yard touchdown. With the defense holding the Hatters to punts, an interception (senior safety Joe Bubonics) and a turnover on downs, the Flyers extended their lead further on the first play of the fourth quarter on a 21-yard touchdown pass from Cook to freshman receiver Luke Brenner.
Chisholm put the finishing touch on the game with a 5-yard run for his fourth of the day, but the extra point was blocked to keep the score at 41-13.
The Flyers forced a turnover on downs and ran out the clock to close out a comfortable 28-point win on the road.
Next, the Flyers (5-4, 4-3 PFL) finish the regular at home Nov. 13 against PFL-leading Davidson (7-1, 6-0 PFL) for senior day at noon at Welcome Stadium.
