Nazareth scored seven times in the first half, including an interception return, a safety and a blocked punt return.


After taking a 14-0 lead on Michael Masterson’s four-yard touchdown run, Jack Dolan picked off an overthrown ball on Julian’s next play from scrimmage and returned it 30 yards for a score. Nazareth (2-0) scored 21 points in nearly 5:30 minutes to start the game.


Freshman Ivory Kelly-Martin took a pitch to the right and ran 63 yards for a touchdown on the game’s first play from scrimmage. Kelly-Martin also scored on his only other carry in the game, a 22-yard score to end the first half with the Roadrunners leading 44-0.


Seven rushers accounted for 201 yards in the first half for Nazareth, which played without standout sophomore Christopher Simmons (leg injury). Simmons is expected to return in Week 3 at Marist Friday.


“It was really amazing. I loved it. That’s what we practice on; getting the best play we can.” —Kelly-Martin said of his touchdown to open the game
