It’s over in Collegeville
Nick Martin threw for 309 yards and two touchdowns, while rushing for 38 yards and three touchdowns, as the St. John’s football team took out some frustrations on an overmatched Carleton squad with a blowout victory.
The victory snapped a four-game losing streak – the longest in a single season since 1930. The Johnnies improved to 1-4 in MIAC play and 3-4 overall.
St. John’s scored on its first three possessions and led 30-0 at halftime.
It was the 487th career victory for Johnnies coach John Gagliardi, who extended his lead as the winningest coach in college football history after a week in which he said there was no truth to speculation he would be announcing his retirement over the next week.
Carleton’s first touchdown came on a 2-yard run by Andy Zweber at the 8:33 mark of the fourth quarter. That scoring drive went 72 yards. The Knights (1-3, 3-3) had just 77 yards of total offense before it began.
Chase Gottschalk added a 29-yard touchdown catch later in the fourth quarter
