Wide receiver Devin Salisbury set a school record with 11 receptions as totaled 149 yards and three touchdowns. His scored were half the mark of quarterback Dan Williams’ record of six.

Quarterback Dan Williams set a school record with six touchdown passes to go with 338 yards as he led the No. 21 Stevenson Mustangs past Farleigh Dickinson-Florham, 54-15. Stevenson remained undefeated with a 4-0 record and are now 6-0 against the Devils with a 28.2 average points differential.

The victory also secured their spot at the top of the MACC Conference as Albright upset No. 13 Delaware Valley, 20-17 on Saturday as well.

The ability to move the ball through the air was the clear difference between the two teams. Williams threw the ball all over the field. Devin Salisbury set a school record with 11 receptions for 149 yards and three schools. Teammate Preston Addo had six receptions for 150 yards and three more scores.

“They (Williams, Salisbury and Addo) put the work in Monday through Friday and as long as they continue to do that we’ll hopefully continue to have success,” Head coach Ed Hottle said. “Dan gets sharper and sharper. With these guys working together, it’s going to be fun to watch over the next six games.”

Meanwhile, Devil quarterback Jagger Green completed less than half of his passes, going 18-for-37 for 161 yards and four interceptions without a score through the air.

FDU-Florham got out to a sluggish start, fumbling the ball twice on their opening drive. They retained possession both times but were forced to punt. Their next drive was halted after the first play when Billy Lewis picked Green off. That turnover also set the Mustangs up with great field position, just 33 yards away from the endzone. Williams first completed a seven-yard pass to Addo, and then a 26-yard touchdown pass back to him.

On the Devils’ next drive, Stevenson forced another turnover with James Lauer intercepting Green.

Late in the first quarter, FDU-Florham’s Donavan Lewis intercepted a pass throw by Williams and put the devils in great field position. Taking advantage of the close proximity to the endzone, Green was able to find the endzone on a one-yard run. The Devils were then successful on a two-point conversion that put them ahead 8-7 at the end of the first quarter.

However, in the second quarter the Mustangs began to pull away, scoring twice on touchdown throws by Williams. The first one he found Salisbury on a 37-yard touchdown pass and they he found Addo for a 20-yard touchdown that put Stevenson up 21-8 midway through the second quarter.

FDU-Florham showed signs of life by scoring on the responding drive with a one-yard run by Robert Maddison, but after a high snap on a punt, the devils only got the ball five yards and set Stevenson up on the 42 yard line in the final minutes of the quarter. Just three plays later, William hit Salisbury for a 29-yard touchdown pass, increasing the Mustangs lead to 13 points at halftime.

After being held to just a 26-yard field goal by Sternfield on the opening drive of the second half, Stevenson continued to keep the pedal to the floor and score three more touchdowns. Addo hauled in a 49-yard touchdown pass from Williams. Following a three-and-out by FDU-Florham, an eight-play, 83-yard drive ended with a six-yard touchdown pass from Williams to Salisbury to make it a 44-15 game.

“They (FDU-Florham) did some things in the running game we haven’t sceen before and we were able to get into halftime and get it adjusted and the guys did a great job making the adjustments on-field,” Hottle said. “We were able to get some stops early in the third quarter and our offense started to fire on all cylinders.”

The onslaught transitioned to defense as Lewis caught his second interception of the game. A few drives later, Austin Tennessee returned an interception for a 78-yard touchdown.

Beginning the fourth quarter, Sternfield hit a 35-yard field goal to make it a 54-15 game.

Stevenson just wore out the clock in the fourth quarter.

The Mustangs will start the month with two road games, playing at Misericordia and at Widener before returning home on Oct. 22 to host Delaware Valley in what should be a battle for the top spot in the MACC Conference.
