Week nine of the ODAC football season came and went with a flurry, leaving fans with a three-way tie atop the standings.  Hampden-Sydney College handed Guilford College it's first loss of the league slate, while Randolph-Macon College joined those two squads at 4-1 following its win over Shenandoah University.  Washington and Lee University picked up its second straight win with a triumph over Catholic University, and Bridgewater College notched its first conference win at Emory & Henry College.

Hampden-Sydney traveled to Guilford and came away with 52-0 shutout of the previously ODAC-unbeaten Quakers.  Quarterback Nash Nance, the ODAC Offensive Player of the Week, accounted for five Tigers touchdowns, throwing for three and rushing for two more as part of his game-high 92-yards on the ground.  He hit nine different receivers, including touchdown passes to Holton Walker, Joey Kernan and Eric Gorsline.  Defensively, the Tigers held the Quakers to just 118 total yards (compared to 444 for H-SC).  Scott Markland (pictured), the ODAC Defensive Player of the Week, had a big day up the middle, recording three tackles for a loss including 2.5 of H-SC's seven quarterback sacks.  He also recovered a fumble.  Zach Morgan returned an interception 41 yards for a score.  Guilford got nine tackles apiece from Daytwyn Rascoe and Satiir Stevenson, while Stevenson joined teammate JerMario Gooch atop the ODAC ranks with his third interception of the season.

Randolph-Macon brought a balanced attack to the table in topping Shenandoah, 42-7.  Zac Naccarato completed 13-of-14 passes for 198 yards and two touchdowns, while John Byrd (72 yds, 2 TDs) and Will McGhee (64 yds, 1 TD) led R-MC to 198 yards on the ground.  McGhee increased his ODAC-leading rushing total to 1,321 yards.  Matt Williamson and Greg Petrohovich caught TD passes from Naccarato, while Petrohovich tossed a 58-yard score to Austin Cundiff.  SU quarterback Justin Neff was 15-of-17 passing for 144 yards and a touchdown pass to Brandon Adams.  Defensively, Michael Wroble set the Hornets' tackles record with 19 stops, including 13 solo efforts.  Marcus Mitchell led R-MC with eight tackles.

Washington and Lee scored first, but trailed Catholic midway thru the third quarter before an 8-yard TD run by Marshall Hollerith with 10:14 to play posted the game's 14-10 final margin.  Hollerith recorded a career-best 184 yards rushing on 35 carries (5.3 average).  Luke Terna (68 yards) opened the game's scoring with a 3-yard TD burst.  Catholic got its points from a TJ Tutone to Tucker Hubbell 44-yard touchdown pass.  Andrew Ouellette made 10 catches in the contest, matching Hubbell's game-high 74 yards receiving.  R.J. Allison led CUA defensively with a game-best 12 stops and a fumble recovery.  Walter Ramsey also recovered a loose ball to go with a W&L-high 11 tackles.

Bridgewater notched the first 21 points of the game and led 34-10 with 12:15 to play in its 34-17 triumph at Emory & Henry.  Quarterback Willie Logan put his mark on four BC scores, throwing for 291 yards and three TDs on 19-of-25 passing in addition to a 1-yard TD plunge.  Nick Wimer, Cliff Woodard and Cassidy Burns caught the touchdowns from Logan.  E&H got 241 yards passing and a 68-yard touchdown pass to Lucas Kirby by Kyle Boden.  Jonathan Turpin had a one-yard touchdown run.  Chandler DeHaven kicked two field goals (46 and 24 yds) for BC, while Austin Breed hit one (23 yds) for E&H.  Defensively, Andrew Palmer led BC and all players with 11 stops, including two TFLs and a pass breakup.  Jack Wecker and Sonny Romine recorded interceptions.  David Crouch led the Wasps with 10 stops, while Randall Conley registered a quarterback sack.
